Italy is not yet overbuilt with huge malls. There are still thousands of small shops of any kind, boutiques, restaurants, cafeterias and it never gets boring when you explore a town. Lots of Italian culture, great food and some streets lined with orange trees in...More

Not as well kept or presented as other Centro Storico in Italy it is none the less worth a walk through. Varying architecture as expected.

La Spezia has a nice city centre. It’s a 10-15 min walk from the cruise port. Just walk along the yacht harbour under the lovely palm trees for some sun shade. Turn right at the end, cross the street and just move in straight forwards...More

The Centro Storico of La Spezia is a lovely area. There are some nice buildings, monuments, sculptures, fountains, but also some public spaces for people to either sit and relax or walk around and do some much needed window shopping.

A nice place to relax and watch the buildings and the passing parade of locals and tourists. Architecture of a different era.
