Whether you prefer to lie on the beach, or work out at the gym, there are plenty of opportunities for both, and more, in Livorno.
Beach Life in Livorno
During the summer, life for the Livornese centres very much around the sea and beach life. Although there is no beach as such in the city, there are many "Bagni" open daily from June to September. A "Bagno" is a kind of private bathing lido providing changing facilities, sunbeds and umbrellas, food and drink, sports facilities and evening entertainment. Some even have swimming pools. They are like a sort of private holiday club to which you can take out a season ticket, or pay a daily entrance fee. A Livornese institution, the bagno is the hub of activity all summer long, especially for families and young people.
