La Spezia is a city of about 90,000 near Genoa on the Italian Riviera. It is just south of the famous Cinque Terre that attracts so many visitors to the Liguria Coast. Its location makes it one of Italy's most important military and commercial ports. The city is home to some wonderful museums.
In 1992, a Vallejo delegation visited La Spezia and Genoa as part of the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Columbus' voyage to the New World. In 1995, we were hosts for a delegation of teenagers from La Spezia.
