I know there are 4 parking lots in Lerici. How crowded is it normally on a Sunday afternoon in early July? We plan to drive over from Lucca and will probably arrive mid-afternoon, but I am not sure if there will be any parking available. We have a large party so driving our rental car is cheaper for us. I understand there is also a free beach there as well, correct? Finally, are shops open on Sundays in Lerici?
Thank you for any advice you can provide.
