It was in the 16 century that, thanks to the military and commercial strategies of the Medici, Livorno became one of the main ports of the Mediterranean sea.
It’s a town by the sea, a town with strong tastes (the typical dish of fish “Cacciucco” is the best example). Visiting Livorno leaves on your skin and in your soul the scent of salt .
The tour includes the old ” Quartiere Venezia ” (so named for the resemblance to the lagoon city) whose channels are viable even with a boat trip; the new Fortress and the old fortress.
The “Terrazza Mascagni” with the typical checked floor extending for about 8700 squared metres offers an unforgettable view over the Mediterranean Sea.
Do not forget that in Leghorn were born important panters and musicians as Giovanni Fattori, Amedeo Modigliani, Pietro Mascagni. Interesting is to visit the “Giovanni Fattori” museum where you can admire works of Tuscan painters of the 19th and 20th centuries (Macchiaioli and post Macchiaioli).
The sightseeing of this town half a day. It can be followed by the Pisa sightseeing
