The province of La Spezia is the beginning of the Italian Riviera if you arrive from Versilia in Tuscany. From the city of La Spezia ferries leave for Portovenere, Lerici and the Cinque Terre, on its gulf, known as the Gulf of Poets overlook prestigious locations.
The Cinque Terre are a group of five picturesque villages which can be accessed by train or ferry. There are hiking trails between the villages and up to the hills. The Cinque Terre, together with nearby Portovenere, are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Portovenere is characterized by brightly colored houses, narrow medieval streets leading up the hill to a castle, and a picturesque church located on the tip of the promontory. The poet Byron swam in the sea near the headland in what is now called the Byron cave.
Lerici is located across the bay from Portovenere and has a castle, a small old quarter and many restaurants. From Lerici you can reach San Terenzo on foot, walking along the promenade. The paths connect the small fishing villages to the southeast such as Fiascherino, Tellaro and Montemarcello.
The original name Mons Marcelli was that of a Roman military camp dedicated to Consul Marcello. A Roman origin that can still be seen from its orthogonal alleys. Walk them on foot and discover the historic center, with its walls and the beautiful 15th century church of San Pietro. Between the alleys and around the delightful central square, colorful houses and small gardens await you, always loved by intellectuals such as Indro Montanelli; corners of peace far from the summer sea holidays. An exceptional balcony suspended over the Gulf of Poets with the islands of Tino and Tinetto and the plain of Bocche di Magra, where the rugged Ligurian hills slope down into the gentle Tuscan plains. It is the park that best "tells" in images the true essence of a region between sea and mountain, where extremes often touch. Following the Via del Magra, from the famous Bocche to the Val di Vara, you will encounter a thousand different botanical species, a rich and different fauna, often contrasting landscapes just a few kilometers away. In the park there are some treasures. The village of Tellaro with its position perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea: to visit the alleys of the historic center and the church of San Giorgio. The Vara represents a major wildlife oasis. The splendid pine woods of Aleppo, from Punta Bianca to Tellaro, with 260 hectares of forest are a unique example in Italy. At the mouth of the Magra there are cormorants, herring gulls, herons and kingfisher, bird symbol of the Park.
The hinterland cities to visit include Varese Ligure with its central round square and a small castle, Brugnato for its infiorata or carpets of flower petals for Corpus Domini, and the larger city of Sarzana with a pedestrian center enclosed by walls, good antique shops and two castles, one right in the city and the castle of Sarzanello on the hills above it.
