Feeling peckish for a slice of la dolce vita in Italy’s La Spezia? Then book a cruise with the masters of Mediterranean lifestyle: MSC Cruises.
If La Spezia, Italy’s Riviera and the Cinque Terre sound like your holiday dream, you only have to join MSC Cruises on a Mediterranean cruise to make your dream come true.
Stretching from Ventimiglia to just past La Spezia, with the craggy Cinque Terre region in between, the sweep of shoreline known as the Italian Riviera is all about la dolce vita. Rich in heritage and linked by a delightful walking trail, the five cliff-side towns within the Cinque Terre National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – promise to deliver an authentic taste of Italian customs, food and wines. And the Mediterranean theme naturally continues on board ship, courtesy of MSC Cruises.
Pretty lanes plus several 13th-16th-century churches make La Spezia’s old town worth a visit, but also check out the interior of the post office with its huge Futurist mosaic of trains, ships and planes.
A short drive from town will see you reach two of Italy’s most iconic cities: Pisa and Florence. Make a date with the 12th-/14th-century Leaning Tower of Pisa, now stabilised and – finally – no longer “on the move”, as well as other attractions such as the Piazza del Duomo, the Church of Santa Maria della Spina and the Palazzo della Carovana, to name but three. In Florence, the city once ruled by the Medicis and the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, you’ll find such treasures as the Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, plus a raft of high-fashion outlets to make your mouth water.
La Spezia, the Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa and Italy’s Mediterranean way of life await you on a fabulous cruise with MSC Cruises. Holiday deals don’t get better than this, so book your vacation today.
