What to expect from Livorno

The old port of Livorno The old port of Livorno



Think of Tuscany, and Livorno most probably won't be the first place that comes to mind. Even its English name, Leghorn, doesn’t ring a bell to many.

And yet the port city of Livorno is Tuscany’s third largest city after Florence and Prato, with a lively population of around 156,000 and an extremely favourable position on the Tuscan coast.
