The city of La Spezia has a big commercial and cruise dock. Is one of the most important dock in Italy.
Live in La Spezia is cool in summer but in winter it gest quite boring.
The most beautiful and touristic places are outside the city, nearby there is Cinque Terre, Lerici and Portovenere. All those villages are really beautiful.
