BUS ROUTE "LAM BLU"
Starting from Livorno Railway Station, the LAM BLU takes a straight route along Viale Carducci right down to Piazza della Repubblica, then down Via Grande (get off here for Via della Madonna and the Central Market area).
If you are already in the city centre and want to head out along the coast, you can catch the LAM BLU bus at Stop C in Via Grande, the first stop after Piazza Grande, as you head towards the port (cathedral on your left). The bus continues to the old Medici Port (past the Quattro Mori statue) at the far end of Via Grande. Here it turns left and follows the coast road south, past the Terrazza Mascagni and the Grand Hotel Palazzo. Get off here for the Fattori art gallery, a 5 minute walk along Via Forte dei Cavalleggeri. The bus passes the Church of San Jacopo and the Naval Academy, and then goes through Ardenza Mare and on to Antignano where it turns round at the stop called Miramare (next to the Baracchina Azzurra bar) to come back along the exact same route. (SEE ROUTE ON MAP BELOW)
