A beautiful city on its own but better know as the gateway city to Pisa and Florence. Livorno is a great cruise seaport to visit.
If you are staying longer in Livorno take the opportunity to visit the inland medieval towns to the south of the city like Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci and Suvereto which can be easily reached by a short train ride.
Also often overlooked by cruise ship passengers is the stretch of coastline from Livorno to Piombino known as the Etruscan Coast that stretches for about 60 miles. It is an area with incredible natural settings characterized by fantastic beaches, medieval villages, and often wild and rocky cliffs along the sea. The Etruscan Coast is well worth a visit for its history, art, good food and wine.
