Villa Mimbelli is famous for housing Livorno's most important collection of art works - the
Museo Fattori -, but the grounds around the villa form a very green public park which also contains a recently restored theatre (il Teatrino), and a ludoteca, or children's indoor play centre (membership needed). The park is not far from the sea, in the San Jacopo district. It is open from 8am to dusk every day.
