La Spezia in April - what should we see?

I know nothing about this area of italy - in fact i have not been to italy before and we are arriving ther by cruise ship for one day - any thoughts on what we can do independently of the prearranged shore excursion?. We only have from 9 til 6 so wont want to travel too far

1. Re: La Spezia in April - what should we see?

Depends on the date in April, Thye ferries to portovenere and the cinque terre usually commence in time for Easter so these are well worth a visit. I think the tenders come in a few yards away from where the tourists boats depart. the departures from La Spezia should time well with your arrival then they stop running for about 2 1/2 for lunch and recoomence in the afternoon.

La Spezia is amodern city and has a number of museums. restaurants etc and good shops in the pedestianised area but thse will close netween 12.30 to 3.30
