What people are saying about La Spezia

I was with 3 others and we all really enjoyed the boat trip. I was a little concerned by the pics that the boat would be too small and not smooth, but it held 12 people comfortably and was smooth. I loved seeing the towns and cliffs from the water. We stopped for a swim and visited Monterosso, which was fantastic. The skipper was very friendly. He provided some information about the area. Definitely recommend!

Great trip, we were lucky with the weather too. Very good music while driving Very friendly staff Overall a very nice day Price/performance OK
