Booking.com asked travellers...Why do people say La Spezia is best seen on foot?
The main shopping area where we stayed was on a long street which was free of cars. This made it relaxing to shop, walk to the castle and even down to the waters edge. It seemed like the best parts of the city were within walking distance, probably only about 15-20 minutes to walk from the train station to the water via the shopping street. The shopping was not high-end like Milan, but more affordable.
Booking.com asked travellers...Why would you recommend La Spezia for food?
We chose la Spezia for its location and proximity to the Cinque Terra only. For this it was excellent. Harbour walk was really nice but really the town is quite drab. Unfortunately we had bad weather while there which didn't help.
Booking.com asked travellers...The beach means different things to different people. What did the beach in La Spezia mean to you?
La Spezia is very close to the Cinque terre, hence serves as a perfect base to explore the Cinque terre especially if you want to avoid the high costs of staying in the Cinque terre
Booking.com asked travellers...What effect did the scenery in La Spezia have on you?
Unforgettable scenery in 5 terre, especially on those hiking trails.
Booking.com asked travellers...Was it cheap, fast, well-explained? What made it so easy to get around in La Spezia?
It was easy to get around by bus and it was cheap.
