Italy (Part 3: La Spezia)

It’s a gloomy Saturday morning here in Newcastle, as if it knows that this is the last weekend for our Spring Break *yawn*. But, the weather won’t stop me from sharing the next part of our Italy Trip πŸ˜€

From Pisa, we took the train to La Spezia and it costs us 7.20 Euro. The main reason for going to La Spezia was to visit Cinque Terre (5 Villages).

The picture above was taken at one of the villages. Beautiful, isn’t it? πŸ˜€ Anyway, we planned on visiting all 5 villages on the very same day that we arrived in La Spezia. Sadly, the weather didn’t allow us to do so. It was raining and we were informed by the hotel reception that most trails for hiking are closed. So, we decided to just stay in La Spezia town and go to Cinque Terre the next day.

La Spezia is the nearest port town and point of access for Cinque Terre. It is also the main naval port of Italy. How cool is that? hehe.

Here in La Spezia, we had one of the best Gelato in Italy: awesome flavour, big scoop and on top of that, cheap XD Just look at Dona and Mels’ happy faces after eating the gelato haha !

I don’t know about everyone else, but to me La Spezia’s town has its own beauty.

They have cool-looking alleys and I like how their shops are arranged. On the top left picture, there is a lift at the end of the road (an outdoor lift going up for your convenient). You know how coffee is a thing in Italy right? So, my 2 coffee-lover friends of course wanted to try their coffee whenever they have the chance to. The bottom right picture is from our tea time in La Spezia. The best looking drink there is of course the Espresso con Panna yumz!

We had a great time walking and sight-seeing in La Spezia. So, we went to hotel early that night so that we can prepare for our next day trip to Cinque Terre πŸ˜€

I’ll leave you with the picture of our sophisticated-looking accommodation. It was newly refurbished and has very modern look. The best part is you don’t have to use adaptor for the plug point because it is a USB point instead πŸ˜€ haha Β Ciao!
