One day in La Spezia with kids?

We'll have one day to spend here & know nothing about it.

If you had only one day with kids there, what would you do or see?

Sorry for the previous post - i've just signed up.

Spezia is quiet city, not much to see. Walk in the centre, along embankment....

You can take a bus L and go to Lerici for example, you'll have much pleasant and enjoyable time. From La Spezia Central Ctation to Lerici it will take about 20 -25 minutes.

Or go to another direction - to Portovenere. Bus is from Spezia Central Station also.

All depends on what you want to do. La Spezia is a city with a population of 100.000 and has good shops bars and restaurants there are also a number of museums. From La Spezia you have easy access to the seaside towns of Lerici (bus) and Portovenere (bus or boat) and also the cinque terre (boat or train).

Let me know how La Spezia is for you. I am taking a vacation with my family (3 small children) and we will be in la Spezia area for a week. Actually staying in a villa in Liguria. I am desperate to find places and things to do.

We stopped in La spezia last year for the day (on a cruise). We took the bus to Portovenere. Took about 30 mins and was fantastic. A beautiful little port with great bars and restaurants or just walk along the waterfront and admire the view and boats
