On this trip, I fly into Milan Malpensa airport in Northern Italy, then take the train down along the coast to visit the very small town of La Spezia. This one is a bit off the beaten path, as La Spezia is not so much known as a major tourist destination, though perhaps those looking for a slower pace and lots of local shopping might find it interesting. I found it a bit disappointing, not that there is anything wrong with the place, it’s just that if you’re going to go all the way to Italy, there are quite a few places I would rather visit, namely Venice, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Florence, etc.
