Livorno is a Tuscan province which faces the wonderful Mediterranean Sea and borders on the provinces of Grosseto and Pisa.
The most important historical-artistic place of the city is the old town of Livorno, with its pentagonal plan and its ancient protecting walls; moving from the old centre, you can find numerous XIX-century buildings and monuments.
The symbol of Livorno is the Monument dedicated to the four Moors (built at the end of the XVI century), which represents the figure of Ferdinand I of the Medici family, surrounded by other smaller statues representing the pirates in chains.
Another interesting place in Livorno is the Piazza Grande, rebuilt almost completely after the bombardments of the Second World War; here it’s possible to admire the Big Palace, the Town Hall and the wonderful Duomo of Livorno.
You could also visit the New Fortress and the Old Fortress (built at the end of the XVI century), the Mascagni Belvedere Terrace (built where in times past there was the Fort of the Cavalleggeri), composed by 4100 marble columns and by a mosaic flooring of about 35.000 tiles.
And for all who love the history, we counsel to visit the following museums: the Hebraic Museum ‘Yeshivŕ’, the Museum dedicated to the great composer Mascagni, the Provincial Museum of Livorno.
