We stayed in LaSpezia for 3 nights at the Hotel Ghironi and were very pleased with the hotel staff, in particular this lovely curly haired lady who was the most helpful person. She always had an answer or a suggestion for us and never lead us wrong. The hotel was clean, comfortable and very easy to find. We walked everywhere and from this hotel, walking is a must but we really didn't' mind because that's what touring Italy is all about!! Breakfast was very enjoyable and offered too many options to try them all. LaSpezia itself is not a pretty place but convenient to get to all of the other areas in the Cinque Terre area. Make sure you take the time to get yourselves to Porto Venere as it's just as interesting, if not more, than any of the 5 cities that are so hugely promoted. Our boat cruise to Portofino which we took from the harbour was worth the money and we really enjoyed it. The time and energy needed to walk from Monterosso to Vernaza is well worth it but don't expect to be able to do all 5 in a day!! The most amazing views and interesting landscape on the hike between those 2 cities. We really didn't walk between any of the others as the day got away on us and my legs were going to fall off!! Absolutely loved this area along the coast line and would highly recommend taking several days to enjoy it. LaSpezia itself is not a "polished" city with any pretty sights but functional for touring the area. The water front area is pretty.
