About Livorno

Historically, Livorno was one of the coastal fortresses protecting Pisa. Indeed, there are still many historic sights to be seen around the city.

A popular spot for tourists is Fortezza Vecchia, Livorno’s harbourfront. You’ll find expensive yachts at one end, and the smaller fishing boats at the other end for a truly authentic local experience.

Make sure you also visit the Piazza del Repubblica – widely considered the most impressive square in Livorno.

If you’re looking for a beautiful beach, look no further than Sonnino beach. It can get a little crowded during summer but the rest of the year it’s ideal for a romantic walk, or just some time to relax.

Antignano beach is another great place to chill out – a rockier beach with fantastic views out over the sea.
