La Spezia, An Italian Mediterranean City

When my husband and I were driving around Italy, it was not really part of our plan to visit La Spezia. Our GPS got lost or shall I say 'we got lost' and ended up in a beautiful Mediterranean city, La Spezia. It was Springtime (May) but the weather in La Spezia is sunny and lovely. We were so happy to have found this wonderful place! We enjoyed walking around the city and had my first real Italian Gelato. Sadly it was not part of the trip so we didn't stay longer in the gorgeous city!

La Spezia, in the Liguria region of northern Italy, is the capital city of the province La Spezia, it is one of the main Italian Military and commercial harbors and hosts the arsenal of the Italian Navy. 

Things to do in La Spezia:

* Sightseeing/ City tour, walk around the city; Go to the beach.
* Visit historical Churches like Cristo rei de Secoli, Abbey Church of Santa Maria Assunta,
   Santi Giovanni e Agostino, Nostra Signora della Scorza
* Go to Museums like Ubaldo Formentini: Civic Museum in the Castle of San Giorgio,  
   Amedeo Lia Museum, Palazzina delle Arti and Museum of Seals, etc.
