La Spezia is at the head of a South-facing bay, with a good deal of industry. We motor up the East side of the bay, behind the harbor barrier and down the West side to the small inlet at La Grazie. We find a space on the visitors’ pontoon. A beautiful place with a piazza shaded by trees, old houses and some very fine yachts. This includes three schooners and a very large motor yacht, available for charter.
We find the inevitable bar overlooking the moorings before walking around the town, returning to the bar for dinner.
