Livorno is the capital of the province of the same name in Tuscany.
It is the third largest city in the region by population, after Florence and Prato. It is located on the coast of the Ligurian Sea and is one of the most important Italian ports.
Born by the will of the Medicis, who made it a city in 1606, Livorno became a haven of hospitality for all those religiously, politically or racially persecuted, getting rich from the enterprise and customs of diverse foreign nations. You'll be fascinated by its charm walking by in streets that may preserve evidence of three different cults, tasting its typical dishes such as "caciciucco", "triglie alla Livornese", and the famous rum punch, allowing yourself a boat trip along the "Fossi Medicei," following the ancient pentagonal perimeter along the sixteenth century fortifications with their characteristic pink color, then wandering into the enchanting atmosphere of the historic district of Venezia Nuova, built on the water.
The sea is an integral part of city life, with a beautiful walk through the gardens, fragrant plants and kiosks, elegant seaside resorts, and the port and its activities.
Do not forget the immense artistic heritage of its eighteenth century churches - fine examples of Art Nouveau architecture - elegant villas where personalities of international fame resided.
