A lovely province town, recently grown in tourism thanks to it’s vicinity to the Cinque Terre National park and its Cruise Ship Port.
It’s town centre walking distance from the train station is full of interesting museums, nice shops and amazing restaurants. A must is the tour to it’s big Food Market , only closed on Sundays. Do not miss having an aperitif at one of the town centre lovely bars that serve ‘apericena’ (aperitif + dinner).
When visiting the Cinque Terre, La Spezia deserves a visit for sure!
