La Spezia is in itself also an exciting experience. We could call it a small city or a large town. Most tourists use the city as a base for visits to Le Cinque Terre and the Ligurian Riviera. However, one should not forget that the city itself has a great atmosphere and offers exciting attractions. The large and wide promenade offers plenty of opportunities to explore with the busy port and look at the many ships and boats that dock here.
Along the promenade you will find a beautiful park, offering pleasant walks in the open air. Via del Prione is the busiest street of La Spezia. This pedestrian street is very lively and offers a wide range of shops and opportunities for leisurely strolls.
