Take Me Back
Situated in the south of the Liguria region and on the border with Tuscany, La Spezia is often left out of the tourist circuits to the detriment of Tuscan jewels such as Pisa, Florence or Lucca; or obscured by the shadow of the villages of Cinque Terre and Portovenere.
The city deserves attention for several reasons, and if you have several days to get to know the area, you can go deeper to find things to see and do.
La Spezia has an excellent train connection to get there from the south, Rome and Tuscany (Pisa or Florence, for example) or the north either Genoa or Milan. The Central train station is only ten minutes away from the city centre. There are also buses to the surrounding villages such as Portovenere.
