Make a holiday rental home or apartment in La Spezia, Italy your home away from home

The province of La Spezia is a beautiful region of Liguria in Northern Italy. The province is home to many wonderful traffic free villages perching on any flat land between the sea and the hills, often clinging to sheer cliffs. Any tourist information about La Spezia will confirm its suitability as a truly romantic escape from the rigours of modern life. Taking a La Spezia apartment is perfect for those looking to escape to a glorious beach resort, sample authentic Italian life and walk in unrivalled scenery.

Things to do in La Spezia, Italy

The Cinque Terre is an 18km stretch of staggering rocky coastline in the La Spezia province which attracts discerning tourists from around the world. La Spezia holidays along the Cinque Terre revolve around strenuous hiking, swimming in the Monterosso Bay and drinking full bodied red wines which are produced in the region, all complimented perfectly by an atmosphere of peace and quiet. There are many excellent walking and hiking trails, some of which are old mule tracks dating back many centuries. The Cinque Terre is so unique that it has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The coastline is a real attraction in summer. Far from the baying crowds of tourists familiar to those who have visited the nearby Italian cities or the French Riviera, the beaches of La Spezia remain quiet and picturesque. With such clear, warm waters lapping the shore, swimming, snorkelling and just relaxing on the beaches are a genuine delight.

Places to visit on holiday in La Spezia, Italy

The capital of the province and namesake, La Spezia, is an ancient town which nestles between the coast and the towering hills. It is wonderfully connected to all the attractions of the province, and is the perfect location to take a La Spezia apartment, especially if this is your first holiday in the area.

Lerici is a wonderfully romantic destination, with exquisite villas, beaches and gardens, surrounded by stunning scenery. Throughout the town are a number of excellent restaurants and bars too, making Lerici a perfect destination for a holiday at any time of year.

The medieval town of Sarazana is dominated by an incredibly robust castle, the Medici Fortress, which is worth visiting from any holiday rental villa or apartment in La Spezia. Nearby, Varese Ligure has also got a huge amount to offer tourists in the way of ancient architecture and has wonderful cheese markets.

Manarola is an amazing town which clings gamely to the rocks of the La Spezia coastline. Impossible to reach with a car, Manarola is a wonderfully peaceful place to escape to, reached only by bridle path from Palaedro or Corniglia.

Weather in La Spezia, Italy

In the main summer months (July and August), La Spezia becomes incredibly hot, with monthly averages reaching almost 30°C and daily peaks routinely reaching into the high 30’s (°C). This means that the long evenings are beautifully warm, making dinner outside on the balcony of a La Spezia apartment or villa a wonderful option, drinking local wine, eating local food and watching blazing sunsets over almost indescribable scenery. In winter, temperatures remain remarkably mild, with monthly averages in December and January remaining above 10°C.

Travel to La Spezia, Italy

Both Pisa International Airport (PSA) and Milan Parma Airport (PMF) are within 50km of a holiday rental in La Spezia. Reaching your La Spezia apartment or villa from either airport is usually fairly straightforward, but as some parts of the province are very remote, you are advised to ask the home owner for the best method of reaching your accommodation.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Approximately 15 mins walk to La Spezia centre and 15 mins walk to La Spezia Migliarina train station, slightly further to the central train station. Ideal for access to Cinque Terre and beyond. Apartment was very clean and was well equipped with everything you need for a short stay. Supermarket 2 mins walk and La Pia in Centro Kennedy opposite did excellent pizzas at a very reasonable price. Car park space allocated in secure underground car park was a bonus.The host, Armando, was very welcoming, he met us at the apartment when we arrived and gave us a tour of the town and was happy to answer any questions that we had. Very helpful.
