27th & 29th April 2015 Introduction to this holiday
It was wet on 27th, so we went by train from Levanto to La Spezia. In the Naval Museum (€ 1.55 each) we particularly liked the model ships, ship figureheads and a section about codes and encryption, starting in ancient Greece and Roman times. Some of the information was in English, and it passed time while it rained outside.
There is a nice park by the promenade, which has a lovely bottle brush tree
This church was closed
On 29th we arrived by boat from Portovenere, to catch a train back to Levanto, and saw La Spezia in the sunshine
