What to see near the port of Livorno
The city of Livorno, despite the damage suffered especially during the Second World War, is full of places of interest that embellish its historic center and the surrounding areas. On Piazza Grande, one of the main town, overlooking the Cathedral of Livorno, dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi. Other notable churches are that of Santa Caterina, San Ferdinando and the church of San Jacopo in Acquaviva. The presence in the city of places of worship other than Catholic ones (in the city there are, among others, a Synagogue, a Waldensian Church and cemeteries of various confessions) testifies to the great cultural openness of Livorno.
Walking through the center it is impossible not to reach Piazza della Repubblica, one of the largest in the city. Nearby you will find monuments that will certainly catch your attention. Among these we must necessarily mention the New Fortress (located in the Venezia Nuova district), Palazzo delle Columns of marble, Palazzo de Larderel and, last but not least, the famous Cisternone (a monumental tank in neoclassical style still functioning today).
Moving towards the port (dominated by the Fanale Maggiore ), a visit to the central market (called "delle vettovaglie" ), the Goldoni Theater and the Old Fortress is a must. Finally, for lovers of long walks we recommend the Mascagni Terrace, located on the Labronian seafront and dedicated to the famous composer of the "Cavalleria rusticana".
