what-to-do-and-see-in-la-spezia

The main points of interest in the city of La Spezia are the Castle of San Giorgio and the adjacent Castle Museum Ubaldo Formentini that since 1873 is used as the Archaeological museum rich in Roman and pre-Roman finds (from the Bronze age and the Iron age). About museums is also advisable to visit the Museum of the Seal and the Civic Museum Amedeo Lia which houses works by Titian and Bellini. Considered the greater of the naval museums of Italy and located near the Arsenal Maritime is the Naval Museum, offering an exceptional collection of figureheads, wooden decorations, often depicting female figures or animal, who were on the bow of the english ships from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. With regard to religious architecture we can remember the Cathedral of La Spezia dedicated to Christ the Redeemer, where the relics of St. Venario and Itala Mela are housed and the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, full of sacred art. Elsewhere in the province, the main attraction of the area of the Riviera di Levante is certainly the National Park Marine of the Protected Area; 18 km of rocky coastline overlooked by mountains that run parallel to the coast, planted with grape and olive grove, in whose inlets stand the charming villages of Monterosso, Corniglia, Manarola, Vernazza and Rio Maggiore, colorful villages and linked together not only by roads and rail lines, as well as trails for hiking.
