TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Astoria La Spezia
The only positive side of staying in this hotel is the fact that is in the centre of La Spezia. It takes 5 minutes to get from the hotel to railway station and to the old town with a lot of restaurants. Rooms are clean but the bathroom is a disaster. Claustrofibic and dirty, the air conditioning is not working. Hotel is not wort the price ;(

I woke up at 6am all excited for the day ahead, there was ...
... teaching me the skills of using this coffee equipment.
Key difference is that I only need one per day - it just happens to be a large cup.
A little different to mornings in Perth at 'The Greenhouse'.
... cobble stone main street from the station to the Harbor is classically beautiful, lined with colorful buildings that house small shops, cafes, and residences.
The town itself is very small and only accessible on foot.
Not to be missed is the first part of the hike southeast from Vernazza to Corniglia. This hike literally offers postcard views (like the photo above) of the town, the castle, and more. The trail ...
