Located between Pisa and Genoa in the Ligua region of North Italy, La Spezia is the capital of the Province of La Spezia. Spread over 59.31 sq.km it is home to more than 95,700 inhabitants.
La Spezia has history dating back to the Roman era. Connected with the Genoese alterations until its fall, it later developed along the lines of the Liguarian Capital. The city saw a tremendous development from 1861 due to the commission of naval arsenal by the royal government. When the Italians yielded to their allies in September 1943, La Spezia became a departure port for the Italian Navy on the orders of British.
It is a beautiful town that brews into the surrounding hill ranges giving the tourists a picturesque beauty. The streets filled with Bergamot trees, museums, beautiful gardens, beaches and the well maintained naval territories of Italy are an absolute delight for anyone to see, thus giving them a reason to head to La Spezia.
