  • It was a cloudy day in april, so we had the caste for our own. That way we could roam the fortress, trying which doors and passages were open. Have a look in old, partly demolished tunnels, relive his...  more »

  • A nice sea facing fortress, not very well presented though.
  • Livorno is a busy working port and there is little for the tourist here but it does have two forts. Fortezza Vecchia dates back to the mid 1500s and is close to the area known as Piccola Venezia, a small neighbourhood with canals. Sadly the fort was badly damaged in WW2, the townsfolk sheltered here during the war, but entering it via a tunnel through the very thick walls gives some idea of what it must once have been like. Hardly anything remains of the buildings but it has been turned into a park and gives the opportunity for a pleasant stroll and a view across the canal to other sites in the town
  • Perfect picnic spot.
  • Ok
  • Very nice. Now easily accessible to everyone with the new bridge. Unique, charming, a venue for events and concerts. A space which has been rebuilt the city. To see.
