THE CHARM OF
THE GULF OF POETS
Located high on a cliff side rising from the crystal-clear sea, La Spezia shines like an oil painting. Hundreds of colorful houses and stone buildings cling to the mountain, safeguarding the town from the sea.
Following the outline of the coast on a Liguria luxury cruise, La Spezia appears like a tranquil town, appealing to those seeking quiet and relaxation. Stone arches overlooking the sea and small piazzas set among the old buildings lend it a quaint character, animated by the renowned shops of Via Priore and the elegant boutiques lining Corso Cavour.
A stop in La Spezia on a yacht cruise of the Cinque Terre is a nice alternative to the bustle of Portofino and other glitzy destinations. The marina, which has old origins, is one of the main seaports of the Mediterranean. Located in the gulf by the same name and boasting seven-meter deep waters and a dam, it services luxury yachts and mega-yachts. Porto Mirabello is especially suited to luxury pleasure cruisers who choose to stop in La Spezia on their Cinque Terre charter.
Yachting in Liguria: the most beautiful beaches in La Spezia
La Spezia has many beautiful retreats, including Baia di Lerici, a charming bay of crystal-clear waters backed by forest; Spiaggia di Punta Bianca, a limestone bluff, and Punta Corvo (resting at the foot of a 700-step stairway, or approachable by the sea). Fans of scuba diving and snorkelling head to the nearby Portovenere and its many popular diving spots.
La Spezia is a destination full of surprises that does not disappoint those who visit it on a Liguria luxury charter.
