Welcome to the website for the International Women’s Club of La Spezia

On behalf of all 140 members of our club, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

We aim to create a friendly and welcoming environment: where women of all ages and nationalities who live in or around the city of La Spezia can meet up and make new friends, pursue shared interests, learn new things and engage with our local community.

As we conduct all our business in English, we ask that our members should be able to speak and understand the language, but that’s our only requirement. And, if English isn’t your first language, you can join one of our English discussion groups to improve your skills.

We all believe that it’s very important to get involved in the communities we live in. We have set up a partner organisation that has been extremely successful in raising funds for local charities and community groups. If you are involved in such a group in the La Spezia or Lunigiana area, ¬†and you think we can help you, please get in touch. You can contact us here.

But we also appreciate the outstanding beauty and culture of the area we are so fortunate to live in. So we organise lots of activities that enable our members to get out and about, and discover more about this corner of Italy.

If you visited the website to find out about becoming a member, please have a look around and then go to Contact Us, to sign up. If you would like to know more, please send us an email.

We are so glad you dropped by, and hope very much to meet you in the near future.
