Situated on the northwest coast of Italy not far from Pisa, La Spezia is blessed with an enviable geographic location. As a major port, the city is home to a large portion of the Italian Navy. This port is the heart of the city's commerce, and cruise ships regularly stop here. However, many travelers simply use the city as a gateway to other destinations without spending much time in La Spezia itself. So even though the city has a lot to offer, you'll find it easy to avoid the crowds you'll run into at more well-regarded tourist destinations.
La Spezia has been occupied since prehistoric times. It's useful natural harbor drew settlers from the Mediterranean, including the Romans. But after the fall of the Roman Empire, La Spezia declined in importance. With the rise of the independent state of the Republic of Genoa, La Spezia once again became an important port. Following Italy's unification in 1870, La Spezia became home to the new Italian Navy, helping the city grow.
To this day, La Spezia remains inextricably linked to the sea.
Often, La Spezia is seen as nothing more than a gateway to somewhere else. Of the many tourists and cruise ship passengers who arrive at the city, only a few bother to get to know La Spezia itself. But under the gritty façade of a working town, La Spezia has some gems to offer.
Take a stroll along the waterfront. The port area close to the historic center is an excellent place to stroll and people watch. Enjoy the grand Italian tradition of an after-dinner walk and mingle with crowds of locals taking advantage of what the city has to offer.
Learn about the Italian Navy at the Naval Technical Museum. La Spezia’s history with the Italian Navy is on display at this fascinating museum dedicated to the Navy and its equipment. Cannons, diving suits, and all kinds of other naval artifacts are on display, helping you track the changes in military technology over the centuries.
Relax amid the greenery of the Parco Giardini Pubblici. This gorgeous public garden is a perfect place to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. Situated along the waterfront, the well-maintained flowers and trees are sure to lift your spirits and offer the perfect place to take a break.
Dive into the past at San Giorgio Castle. This 14th-century Castle was built by the Genoese during their rule over La Spezia. Its crumbling battlements and thick stone walls are certainly impressive, but even more impressive is the view from the castle over the town and its beautiful harbor.
Take a boat tour to the beautiful Isola Palmaria. This gorgeous island and its dramatic coastline are a popular place to explore. The pebble beaches and sea caves are only a short journey from the city, but they feel a long way away.
La Spezia's train station is centrally located in the town and is a stop along the Genoa to Pisa line. Trains from here go to the cities and other destinations throughout Italy, and also take travelers to the world-famous Cinque Terre just outside La Spezia.
La Spezia cruise terminal lies just on the other side of the historic center of the town from the train station. Cruise ships and ferries dock here from other Mediterranean destinations in Italy and further afield. Many of La Spezia's visitors reach the town by boat.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
