don't take cab from the harbour to the station
you can easily take bus n1 to the train station from the harbour. and if you are looking for a cab ride to Pisa airport, remember it's cheaper to go by train from Livorno to pisa and then to pisa airport.
I've seen many tourists who were asked to pay 70 euros.. well, bus is 85 cents
1.5 euros to pisa.. so u can see there is a BIG difference!
Don't go to eat at "Il Cibaino"
Livorno has plenty of restaurants where the food is good and inexpensive, but one place to avoid 100% is "Il Cibaino". First of all, they don't have a menu with prices - you just have to listen and guess which food might be ok. No idea of how much you are gonna spend. I went there yesterday and ate a basic selection of antipasti toscani: they didn't look freshly made and some of them were drowned in vinegar. Then I took a pasta with some tomatoes and bacon in it: the pasta was hard and bacon was almost impossible to chew.... didn't take any drink either, apart from water. Price: 22 Euros. And in the bill they don't tell how much it is per dish, I got just the total and I couldn't check if there was some extra. Definitely worth avoiding!
