Tuscan Port and Hub

Livorno features one of the biggest harbours in Italy, from which ferries depart towards a long list of Mediterranean destinations, particularly the Tuscan Archipelago, Sardinia and Corsica. Called ‘Ideal Town’ during Renaissance times for its religious tolerance and its advanced trading regulations, it is surrounded by typical Tuscan countryside and Tyrrhenian beaches.

The city was declared a tax-free port in the 1580s, during the rule of Ferdinando de' Medici. The regulation protected the merchants and granted religious tolerance, attracting numerous Jewish and Protestant immigrants. The Counter-Reformation, the Napoleonic invasions, and the loss of its free-port status after the Italian Reunification were at the base of its commercial decline.

Don’t miss the canals of the Venice District, Piazza della Repubblica, and the Fortezza Nuova fortress. The spacious avenues and streets in the city centre contrast with the undulating landscape of its suburban areas. Most hotels in Livorno are located in the central area.

The city is an important centre from which you can explore Tuscany, including Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and the beach resort of Versilia. The local railway station offers regional and national links, while Pisa International Airport is just 22 km away.
