Overview

Livorno is a busy port city located on the Western coast of Tuscany and it is one of the newer cities in Italy. Through the influence and patronage of the famous Medici family in the 16th century, Livorno grew into a strategic port. Its transformation attracted an influx of merchants and sailors from various places who brought a multicultural and diverse flavor to Livorno, as illustrated by the traditional cuisine. Here visitors will find a place with a Tuscan feel but Mediterranean culture, and some of the best seafood around. It is also an easy trip to Pisa and Florence.

Things to Do

Iconic Neighborhoods

  • La Venezia Quarter- Known as “New Venice” this area is the historical heart of the city and escaped devastation during World War II.

Situated on the hills just outside of Livorno, take in the panoramic views of the city and the sea below. Go visit the beautiful architecture of the Santuario della Madonna della Grazie, which houses one of the largest collections of over 600 ex-votive pieces in Italy, many of which are paintings dating back to the early 18th century. Then peruse the market stalls and sit down for a drink or a meal at one of the bars or restaurants.
Family Friendly
