Livorno is a Tuscan province which faces the wonderful Mediterranean Sea and borders on the provinces of Grosseto and Pisa.
Livorno, founded in the XVI century after the port of Pisa has been covered with earth, has a big modern part, because it has been rebuilt after the Second World War. It’s placed along the coast and it has a big port, very important for the majority of the economic activities. It’s the seat of the Naval Academy.
