Charter Destination Lerici

Share this page

Lerici is a Ligurian township at the eastern end of the Italian Riviera and the ideal location for a yacht charter in La Spezia. The idyllic seaside town on the bay of La Spezia is well known for its fabulous secluded beaches and dramatic mountains that plunge straight into the sea.

The relative privacy of La Spezia has, over the years, drawn a crowd of philosophers, writers, and poets, from Dante to Shelley and Byron, earning it the nickname Golfo dei Poeti, the Bay of Poets.

The landscape certainly inspires creativity, from the waterfront piazza with its trompe-l’oeil frescoed buildings to the charming seaside cafés lining the harbour.

Yachts and gozzi, the typical small fishing boats of the area, jostle for space. The medieval fishing village is dominated by the castle. Built during the 11th century on a rocky promontory, it towers above the port.

Head along Via Roma during a yacht charter in La Spezia, where you can dip into the many boutiques selling traditional Italian goods and high fashion. The Gothic chapel Sant Anastasio at the top of the castle offers stunning views across the Riviera and the Golfo dei Poeti. If you are travelling with children, a morning spent at the Castello di Lerici’s Museo Geopaleontologico will enthral little ones, who will marvel at life-size dinosaurs and can experience a simulated earthquake.

Lerici is the ideal location for an Italian Riviera yacht charter where you can enjoy natural beauty, culture, and gastronomy at its finest.

The Best of Lerici

  • Explore the lagoons around Eco del Mare but stop at the private beach club for lunch and views over Portovenere.
  • Walk along the bay from the village to nearby San Terenzo, or head southeast to Fiascherino, Tellaro, and Montemarcello.
  • Stop at Gelateria Arcobaleno in ‪Piazza Garibaldi 20 for (arguably) some of the best ice cream found on the Italian Riviera.
