The Castello is home to an art and history collection, but the best reason to climb the stairs is to have a great view of the city.

A great place to visit, but with plenty of steps it may be difficult for some visitors. Great views from the top and at vantage points on the way. Handrails become trusty companions on the climb over stone steps to the top. Don't forget your...More

Stunning view of La Spezia and the harbor, accomplished from street level with an elevator, a funicular, and an energetic climb. In addition to being its own piece of the past, the castle houses a museum of artifacts including Roman and Etruscan
