Radiant and eternal, Tuscany is undoubtedly one of the finest jewels of Italy. A sometimes land of the Etruscans, a sometimes cradle of the Renaissance, the land that used to be called Tuscia is a true blessing.
Located in the northern part of the region, along the Tyrrhenian coast, Livorno proudly faces Corsica, a neighbor across the sea, just over 40 miles away.
Over the centuries, this former fishing village has become one of the most important and influential Mediterranean ports, as can be seen by the grandiose Place de la Republique. Even though the city has long lived in the shadow of its artistic illustrious neighbors Florence and Pisa, it has forged its own character, a real personality under the guidance of the Medici. Without a doubt it is the Terrazza Mascagni and its checkered tiles that embody this Italian quintessence most gracefully.
A welcoming and tolerant city, Livorno lays claims to this in its many religious buildings of different faiths, as well as its many Armenian, Dutch and Greek cemeteries. Throughout its history, Livorno has been a trailblazing city, displaying visionary urban planning. The Piazza Grande, the old fortress or the colorful district of Venezia Nuova serenely confirm this, letting the passing time strengthen this profound nature.
Another unmissable monument, thanks to its beauty and attention to detail is the Four Chained Moors, a sculpture from the sixteenth century, in praise of the Knights of St. Stephen, which remains even today one of the city's most important baroque symbols.
Livorno is a city with a great quality of life and, thanks to its history, attracts visitors from Italy and abroad alike. An ideal starting point fora trip to Corsica or Sardinia, Livorno is a city that offers its visitors plenty more besides.
