Livorno, Italy

Livorno, a charming city located on the western coast of Tuscany, on the Ligurian Sea, is considered as one of the most important port of Italy. It is one of the most modern cities in Tuscany. Don’t expect to visit a medieval town like many others in the region. Even though there are many archaeological remains, fortunate enough they have not been destroyed during the World War II.

Like every port city, Livorno has always been a crossroads and centre of the world’s cultures as it owes its fascinating charm to this multi-ethnic aspect. The city dates back to prehistoric times, while many Etruscan and Roman remains have been found all close-by.

During the 16th century, the Medici Family contributed in the development of the city and its sea port with the help of the renowned artist Buontalenti. The construction of a new fortified city with fosses and bastions, gave Livorno those aspect that we can see today.
