A few kilometres away from Manarola, you can visit the city of La Spezia, whose historical city centre is rich in museums, and the fishing villages of its wide gulf, which goes from Portovenere and the islands in the West to Lerici and Tellaro in the East.

La Spezia is a typical Ligurian city which has developed along the coast. The streets of the city centre feature graceful Liberty-style buildings which date back to the beginning of the 20th century and the many museums tell the history of the city. ( Museo Lia , museum of ancient and medieval art, Museo del Sigillo , which features the permanent exhibition of the seals donated by the Cappellini family, the Museum of Transport, and a few kilometres from Piazza Cesare Battisti, you can visit CAMEC , the centre of modern and contemporary art, which features permanent exhibitions and exhibitions of national interest. Inside the Arsenale (Shipyard) you can visit the Naval Museum, with a valuable collection of military ships.)

Portovenere and Lerici are connected to La Spezia thanks to ferries departing from the pier, 5 minutes from the pedestrian area, and the buses running across the city.

Past the city of La Spezia there is the Val di Magra (Magra Valley), named after the homonymous river. This area is full of small medieval villages built on the hills which punctuate the whole territory from the coast to the high Apuan Alps.

The historical and cultural centre of the whole area is Sarzana, a town of ancient roman origins which developed in the Middle Ages, famous for its trade and rich in antique shops. In the summertime, Sarzana is the venue of many events, such as antiques exhibitions and medieval pageants
