  • Input, Livorno is not at the level of the rest of the cities in the area, it's a cruise port, is in Tuscany, and that gives it some tourism, but there's nothing special by itself alone. It is a city to catch the pulse of the normal Italy, without much tourism. It is certainly the most beautiful of Livorno, is in the area of little Venice. We could not access schedule.

  • the Church of Saint Catherine is located in the oldest part of the city of Venice. Several times I've been exploring lately have been restored on the walls the ex-voto, during my visit I could know the pastor that is made available to let us know about the Church and its paintings like vasari's painting, and the history of his Church.

  • Beautiful church within the neighborhood of Venice, whose façade was never finished. A lantern hides the dome, which can be seen from the inside. Unfortunately for us very was under renovation and we didn't get to see it in full, but what little we've seen enchanted us!
