La Spezia is located in Liguria in northwest Italy. The city is located between Pisa and Genoa and is an important port for both commercial as well as military purposes. La Spezia has been renovated for centuries, since pre historic times. It mainly gained its importance during the Roman era. La Spezia is heavily influenced by the Lingurian era; several monuments, buildings and streets in the city still show influences and aspects from that ancient era. The climate of the city is typically Mediterranean with hot summers, mild winters and heavy rainfalls in spring as well as in autumn.

The abbey church of Santa Maria Assunta was built in the 13 th century and houses several beautiful art works many of which come through the smaller and suppressed religious groups. The church is mainly worth a visit due to its interiors and its beautiful artwork, the architecture is not very ornate.

Cristo Re Dei Sicoli is an ancient cathedral in La Spezia. The cathedral was built in 1975 for a special project and was designed and built by Adelberto Libera. Since this is the newest cathedral in the city, it's worth a visit for its interesting present day architecture and decorations.

The Ubaldo Formentini is the civic museum of the city and is located within the castle of San Giorgio. The museum has several different exhibits and is a good place to learn a little about the history and the culture of the city.

This is one of the most interesting museums in the region because of its amazing collection. The museum showcases a wide range of art works and paintings by the local artists. The contemporary art collection in the museum is quite interesting.

The old town or quarter of La Spezia is charming and reflective of its amazing history like it is with most cities. The old section of the city still has very narrow streets that are twisting their way across the section. This part of the city has several good things to notice, the old buildings here are standing since centuries and the architecture is reflective of its past. There are traces of Lombard era almost everywhere in this section of the town.

The best way to reach La Spezia is by train. The city is located between Pisa and Genoa so the trains running between these two cities pass through La Spezia. There is a train line which passes from La Spezia and goes to Levanto with the scenic Cinque Terre national park on the route. Day tickets as well as weekly passes can be bought in advance. It is just as easy to travel through buses as well since the nearby towns are frequently connected to La Spezia by buses. However, if you want to reach the city from another region trains are much more comfortable.
