La Spezia is a small town nestled at the center of the Gulf of Poets. It is just been considered as the transport gateway to the more famous Cinque Terre for long time but in latest times it’s been more and more appreciated by tourists who choose to spend some time in town, also thanks to a higher care for local attractions and developement.
La Spezia retains up to present time its character of major harbor for the Italian Navy. Its port allows also the traffic of cargo ships and indeed it has become a major port of call for large cruise ships.
Many beautifully decorated buildings in La Spezia center, dating back to the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen taking a walk in town. In the newer part of town you can see very innovative contemporary architectures. A few very well curated art and history Museums make a cultural visit possible. The large pedestrian area with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars for every taste can be enjoyed for a fun night our, especially during Spring and Summer.
