Livorno is located south of Pisa, along the Tyrrhenian coast, it is an important commercial and industrial center and the port of Tuscany.
We suggest you to visit the bastions of the Fortezza Vecchia overlooking the port and the sea, an old fortress that gives visitors their first sight of Livorno as it was in the past times, the “ideal city” built by the Medici Grand Dukes of Tuscany.
The Medicean Darsena that was the ancient port of this welcoming city, is nowaday a lively meeting place and port of call, such as the Terrazza Mascagni, a beatiful terrace overlooking th sea and Gorgona Isle, set on the other side of the city.
Livorno meets the Mediterranean sea for all over Tuscany, to which it is tied by centuries of history, culture and trade.
Livorno was founded in the second half of the sixteenth century by the Medici when, for military and commercial reasons, the fishing village which had grown up round Matilde di Canossa’s keep rapidly became one of the Mediterranean’s main ports.
Reminders of the “Nations”, which contributed to the birth and growth of an important port known throughout the Mediterranean, are to be found in churches, historic cemeteries, archives and food.
The sea flows through the Medicean canals right into the ancient quarters of the town, providing Leghorn with the unique charm of a small piece of Tuscany land reaching into the sea.
Its history, traditions and culture, the flaming sunsets and limpid, scented air, sea sports and gastronomic traditions all speak of Livorno as a link with the sea.
Europe’s first "Bagni" bathing establishments were built here in the late nineteenth century when the idea of seaside holidays first became popular.
The Natural History Museum and the Aquarium contain many precious treasures recovered from the sea.
Livorno is home to the prestigious Naval Academy where Italian Navy officers have been trained for over a century, and which hosts an annual Sailing Trophy with participants from all over the world.
Ancient seagoing traditions are also kept alive by rowing races held between the city’s various quarters, both in the sea and on the canals.
Furthermore the seaside resorts along Leghorn coastline are an ideal base for spending a vacation both in summer and winter, for its mild climate.
