Livorno Things to Do

  • Terrazza Mascagni

    Further along the coast from the Scoglio della Regina and a modern day "beach" complex, the Terrazza Mascagni sprouts out from a patch of wasteground, and at first seems underwhelming. But, as it turns the corner, the checkboard terrace suddenly becomes impressive. Behind it, there is a park with various monuments like a bandstand, and the Grand...

  • Fortezza Vecchia

    Livorno's harbourfront is a picturesque place, with all the posh yachts at one end, and the smaller dowdier fishing boats shoved up by the old fort. Along the waterfront is a large monument called the Quattro Mori, with a statue of a Grand Duke surrounded by four prisoners in chains.

  • Fortezza Nuova

    Once a grand fort with its impressive red brick walls surrounded by canals, is now little more than an overgrown park. Free to enter, the place is now overrun with cats...and like most cat colonies around the world, this one has its own eccentric cat lady who shuffles in to feed them. Aside from cats, there is a dilapidated children's playground,...

  • Piazza della Repubblica

    The most impressive square in Livorno is actually a sort of bridge over the main canal. It seems far too large for a place like Livorno, far too grand...and very empty. Two larger than life statues face off each other across the length of this huge piazza, but I forget who they are... One one side, a busy road separates the piazza from the canal...

    more
  • Scoglio della Regina

    Walking towards the seafront, the first place you come to is the Scoglio della Regina, the Queen's bathhouse, a dilapidated old building hanging over the sea at the end of a pier. I suppose these bathhouses must have been popular at some point, allowing bathers to dip in privacy, but unfortunately things change and Scoglio della Regina looks as if...

Livorno Transportation

You return the car...

Livorno Tourist Traps

  • 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...

    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 cents1.5 euros to pisa.. so u can see there is a BIG difference!

Livorno Favorites

  • Pisa and or Florence from Livorno

    Well, it's possible, but I wouldn't recommend it. You don't have a full 12 hours, you've got to disembark, and u need to allow some buffer time getting back. No fun being left behind! The best train station in Pisa for the Leaning Tower complex is not the main central one, but the suburb one, Santa something, (plenty of net info). Short walk then...
