Sun, sea and cycling - if your hands start sweating and your feet itching once you hear those words, a short cycling trip to Sarzana might be exactly what you need. The region bordering Tuscany and Liguria offers a lot to friends of two wheels and pedals. Here, you will find the right mixture of beach life, culture and sports on every corner. Plus it’s Italy, so foodies won’t come up short here.

The type of routes available to cyclists around Sarzana is also very diverse. Relaxed strolls along the sea make for the perfect introduction, though the true fun begins once you leave the pristine coastline and head for the Apennine Mountains—just be prepared for some serious altitude. Your reward is quaint, amazingly paved roads that afford almost unreal views of the sea on one side and unspoiled views of the mountains on the other: Pure bike happiness.
