  • Visit the old fortress is a must for those tours in Livorno. Nice walk along the walls, the view from the keep and a pleasant stop at the bar. In summer are scheduled many cultural and entertainment events.

  • One of the most characteristic and ancient monuments of Livorno, you may also want a guided tour, the guides are very good and helpful. Quite impressive at night.

  • Visiting the city, it's important to see both the Old and the new, to realize of the many periods of history that helped make Livorno a city so varied and composite. Recommended to fans of medieval history.

  • 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
  • suggestiva
  • 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.
