La Spezia

La Spezia is into the Cinque Terre Region and a sea protected area right in the heart of the Pelagos Sanctuary for Mediterranean Marine Mammals. Sidling up to the exquisite Lerici and Tellaro, this important port town and home to Italy's largest naval base is hugely atmospheric with plenty of cosy trattorias showcasing the Ligurian kitchen's finest. 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. We´re very proud to announce that La Spezia will be hosting the 32nd Conference of the European Cetacean Society.
