500 g di pesce misto (palombo, scorfano, gallinella, san pietro), 200 g di molluschi (seppie, totani, piccoli polpi), 4-5 cicale, 200 g di pomodori pelati, 2 spicchi d'aglio, 1 bicchiere di vino bianco secco, 4 cucchiai di olio d'oliva, peperoncino piccante, prezzemolo, sale, pepe, 4 grosse fette di pane casereccio
In un recipiente di coccio fate cuocere molto dolcemente nell'olio per due minuti uno spicchio d'aglio e il peperoncino tritati; unite i molluschi dopo aver tagliuzzato quelli più grossi e cuocete a recipiente coperto per una ventina di minuti. Alzate la fiamma, bagnate col vino bianco e lasciate evaporare, poi aggiungete il pesce tagliato a pezzetti le cicale, il pomodoro privato dei semi e tagliuzzato, sale e pepe e continuate la cottura a fiamma bassissima per altri 15 minuti. Spegnete il fuoco, unite il prezzemolo tritato e distribuite sulle fette di pane precedentemente abbrustolite, strofinate con l'aglio rimasto e adagiate nei singoli piatti.
DON'T MISS THEIR DELICIOUS CINQUE E CINQUE!
this is an all the time favourite for the local people!
They only make Cinque e Cinque, the chick peas pie
but it's sooooooo good
they also have this spuma bionda which tastes like guaranà, my fave brasilian drink! the owners are very rude ( in funny way) to each other and friendly with the customers, they yell at each other all the time
they are hilarious
i have so much fun when i go there
this is open from the morning till about 8pm
very close to the mountain too
Livorno is a perfect city to live in Italy.
It has a very good climate the whole year round, something like Los Angeles, it's on the beach but it's also very close to the mountains (2 hours drive) and very close to important cities like Pisa ( 20minutes by car or train), Florence (50 minutes by car or train), Siena (40 minutes by car), San Gimignano and so on
Most young people, like me, usually go snowboarding on these mountains, they usually get a lot of snow and there are even snowparks
Chiesa di San Jacopo in Acquaviva
At the end of the Terrazza Mascagni, a piazza opens up, ending with the church of San Jacopo in Acquaviva. Not the most attractive church in the world, it's not particularly ugly either...but the church and the adjoining old houses do stand out a bit, surrounded by the modern buildings across the piazza.
On the sea side of the square, you can get a good view of those sunning themselves on the rocks in the private bathing complex. Just as we were walking past, we noticed two girls posing in their designer beachwear and a rogue wave fast approaching. We stopped to watch the carnage ensue, and snorted as they screamed and checked their makeup.
Our Fourth Port of Call - Livorno Italy
"A trip out to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa"
We had a half day trip on this one as we had been out all day the day before and would be out all day the next day. So a welcomed lie in was in order and a late breakfast before we descended on Pisa for the afternoon.
The foundations of the Leaning Tower of Pisa began to subside when the builders reached it's fourth storey, and each year it was said to lean a little more. A band around the tower prevented further lean, and the tower is now in the same condition as it was in 1810.
Building was begun in 1153 and was not finished untill 1278, with Gothic additions in the 14th century, and it is built entirely of white marble.
