Paloma, our motorhome is parked up at the official sosta a short distance from the La Spezia docks (N44.104370 E9.86110). It’s a bit of a weird place, apparently run by the local Red Cross association and all by volunteers. Even at the end of October, it’s full and why not it is only €6 a night !
As most touirsts miss this place out using it only as a base for visiting the Cinqe Terre, pretty much like we had planned, but with an afternoon to kill and the sun still shining I wasn’t about to waste any of it.
La Spezia, an important port city of the Liguria region situated between Pisa and Genoa.
As we watched the enormous sized cruise ships and super yachts of European royalty sail by in an early autumn parade of Riviera flair, it offered up a reminder of home, the place sparked fond memories of Torquay’s harbour side.
You have the opportunity to soak up a slice of authentic, barely touched Italian city life. In addition to exploring the endless streets.
