  • We both love antiques: no not Leghorn ancient but old and then buttiamole away. The old fortress is symbol: widely damaged by acts of war, little used; Some view some Conference. An interesting film show in summer but in winter it is often closed because not only did we love antiques but tourists give us a deep ennui, see how we treat them. There are tourist signs (of course I'm not talking about the use of European languages, even if only in English), no public toilets, etc. Too bad.

  • This is the old fort at the port. Interesting enough to look around but we didn't spend a lot of time here. The new fort is also open in town.  more »
  • A very damaged site, which s is converted into a free ride site with explanations of the torments of the city. A complete circuit with walls, squares and sub fields which allows to enjoy the site. A small bar in one of the places to eat

  • 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
  • A nice sea facing fortress, not very well presented though.
  • Perfect picnic spot.
  • Ok
  • LIVORNO's historic point ... where does the city ... beautiful facility under renovation
