LaSpezia or Riomaggiore

We have booked 4 nights in LaSpezia (Hotel Astoria)late June, but have recently seen spectacular photos of Riomaggiore accomodation on a cliff face overlooking the ocean. We are now wondering if we have made a mistake in chosing to be in the heart of LaSpezia. Any comments would be most welcome.

Depends what you want, La Spezia is big industrial Town not really a coastal resort as such,

We found Rio to be much more charming and La Spezia more industrialized as mentioned above. We chose to base in Riomaggiore and absolutely loved it.
