By: | Date:

Livorno’s doesn’t have the amazing fashion design shops that the cruise traveler will find in Florence, nor exclusive products like the ‘alabaster’ to be found in Volterra. But, being a city of a reasonable size, it boasts some well-known brands European like H&M, Zara or Benetton. Naturally, there are also small boutiques and a few jewelry shops.

The Shopping Streets

Most shops are to be found in two main streets: Via Grande, which crosses the historical center between the ‘Porto Mediceo’ and the ‘Piazza della Repubblica’ and Via Ricasoli on the southern area of the city. Via Grande is impossible to miss and is very close to the Shuttle bus stops that transport the cruise ship passenger to the city center. Via Ricasoli is a bit farther away but at walking distance – less than a mile away – and is where most ‘high-end’ boutiques are to be found. For basic needs, there is a supermarket - ‘Conad’ – at the west end of Via Grande

Very much off the beaten track, Livorno has a large shopping mall – ‘Centre Commerciale Fonti del Corallo’ – a couple of miles east of the city center (behind the Train Station). At the end of Via Ricasoli, tucked in a corner of ‘Piazza Attias’, ‘Coin’ is a small department store.

It is always good to have some cash with you for incidentals and you will find both an Exchange Bureau and ATM's in Livorno's city center.
