This was just a quick overnight stop that is convenient for Pisa in the morning. It was a long drive down. We did mostly the toll road, but just for a change we also tried 40km of the SS1 coast road that winds along the seafront. The wonderful twisty roads were wonderful, but we could not face 200km of it!
The motorhome aire is down near the docks at La Spezia. The aire is run by the local ambulance station. The area is a little run down, but the juxtaposition is that lining the docs are the shipyards of some of the great superyacht companies such as the Ferretti Group and Sanlorenzo
The ‘small ships marina’ (in quotation marks because some of the ships are of course superyachts) at Lotti Porto, was a really nice affair. Looks pretty exclusive and must cost a pretty penny to moor your boat there we think. Great to be able to walk along the jetty without locked doors everywhere!
Also in attendance was one of the Sea Shepherd boats.
