The best of staying in La Spezia area is that this can be the ideal base to see a very large and varied part of Italy. From the Cinque Terre surroundings, you can visit so many beautiful places, do a lot of day excursions to both Liguria and the upper Tuscany, dive in a cristalline blue sea, hike to Alps-like mountains, see Carrara marble quarries and walk paths with the unique sea view of the Cinque Terre and surroundings from above. All this is possible during a holiday in the area.
Two rivers flow towards the sea in the region around La Spezia, forming two beautiful valleys, both worth a visit: one is the Magra River Valley and Lunigiana region in Tuscany and ending in Liguria, so ancient and charming. The Vara valley crosses the hinterland of the city towards Genova, with an emerald green nature, wild and uncontaminated, constellated with ancient, isolated picturesque villages.
In La Spezia you can see history, art and nature, discover the beauty of Italy in one of the richest and most charming areas.
