    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. We not agreed to it, and I know it can be, but I don't have much more to see from the inside, seen from the Harbor, or rather it is a part of the port. In Livorno there are two, the other is more in the Centre, the Centre can surround and star-shaped, is more interesting.

    Fortress near the port of Livorno, is ideally located in the middle of the channel, with boats around, swinging bridge that rises and lowers to pull the boats, and allow the user to navigate away from the port in the center of Livorno, going inside the fortress, which houses some view, show, and has also an aperitif bar inside.

  • 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.
