By: | Date:

Livorno is not the most charming city of Tuscany but it has a few attractions for the cruise traveler that has visited the top highlights of Tuscany, or for those that just want to spend a relaxing day in port without all the traveling involved to explore Florence, Pisa, Siena or Lucca.

Exploring the city center of Livorno on your own is easy and, being absolutely flat, physically undemanding.

How to Explore Livorno's Highlights and Attractions

A few highlights like the Museo Civico Giovanni Fattori, the Acquario Comunale Giacinto Cestoni, and the Passeggiata Mascagni are not within walking distance from the city center but are close enough and easy to reach. However, public transportation is very easy to navigate.

Public Buses

Around the corner from the Cruise Shuttle Bus Stop on Piazza Municipio, the LAM BLU or LB (formally Bus Nº 1) runs between Via Grande and Ardenza along Viale Italia and has stops close to the Aquarium and next to Passeggiata Mascagni. Both bus stops are within walking distance to the Museum Fattori. Just make sure that you buy bus tickets at the Newsstands on the Piazza Grande (strongly advisable to buy two tickets so that you don't have to look for another kiosk on the way back).

City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Bus

Another option is to get on the Hop-On Hop-Off City Sightseeing Bus, which have been operating since 2009 and tour the city with multilingual audio guides. The Hop-On Hop-Off Bus has stops next to major highlights and also to other attractions like the Natural History Museum, the Modigliani's House, most churches, and landmarks.

Canal Cruising - Giro in Battelo

Cruising the canals of Livorno has become another attractive way of exploring the city as it offers a unique perspective of the city. One of the highlights of the Giro in Battelo as this Boat Tours are known is the stretch under the Piazza Republica, which is considered one of the largest bridges in Europe. It is also an interesting way of seeing both the Fortezza Nuova and the Fortezza Vecchia (the Old and New Forts). Learn More about Sightseeing in Livorno

Wherever, and whatever, the cruise traveler decides to explore always keep in mind that Livorno was heavily bombed during WWII and many areas clearly show the 'scares' of devastation.
