  • From time to time see the fortress lose strength against the clock and the blindness of the institutions. The hope is that a restoration back to the old historical and cultural splendor questunico piece

  • Visit is possible only at certain times. Great events within the fortress. You should bring some time big investment - at events.

  • An interesting and suggestive place in the port of Livorno. In summer, has been the scene of many cultural events and also in the other seasons is used as a location for fairs and exhibitions.

  • 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.
  • An ancient fortress on the sea, near the port of Livorno. Cultural events of all kinds, including the recent cartoon exhibition "Labronicon". Should be more valued and better preserved.
