Beaches overlooking a crystal-clear sea, spectacular views, a marvelous artistic legacy, and small villages set within green valleys, alive with ancient traditions: all this and much more await the visitor in the Province of La Spezia.
One of the most wonderful stretches of the Ligurian Riviera can be found here: Golfo dei Poeti, Poets’ Gulf, named for the love that many great writers and poets have demonstrated for this land.
Steep cliffs, dense pine woods, romantic coves and exceptional beaches, along with picturesque villages perched atop the bluffs, draw the coastal landscape, striking the visitor’s eye with all their beauty.
Lerici, Portovenere, the Island of Palmaria and the Islets of Tino and Tinetto are the best-known destinations, with La Spezia at the Gulf’s center.
Eventually, the visitor arrives at one of the most beautiful scenes of Italy, the Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (together with Porto Venere) for their extraordinary relationship between man and nature, a harmonious balance that stuns the visitor.
