Its elevated location on Mount Caprione and in the center of the park to which it gives its name makes it possible to observe a very large part of the territory of La Spezia and the sea.

Part of the historical territory of Ameglia, Montemarcello is closely linked to its history. The architecture of the Middle Ages is preserved in the tangle of streets and tower houses that characterize the village.


Its name comes from the Roman consul Claudius Marcellus who got this land as a reward for defeating the fearsome Apuan Ligurians and for subjecting the whole area to the control of Rome: the presence of the Roman Villa of the Imperial period in Bocca di Magra is a testament to the love shown by the Romans for this holiday location.

When you visit Montemarcello, don’t miss out the lookout point just a few steps away from the center, crossing a forest of Aleppo pines and Mediterranean vegetation that eventually opens up into one of the most impressive views of the Riviera.
