Livorno is situated along the Tuscan coast and is one of the most important Italian seaports. Its growth is due to the Medici family, who commissioned to Bernardo Buontalenti the fortification of the city. Livorno is the home town of Great Tuscans such as Amedeo Modigliani, Pietro Mascagni and Giovanni Fattori. Because of the bombings during World War II, most of the historical center has been destroyed, but still there are several things to see. Unmissable are certainly the beautiful promenade where you can admire the splendid Liberty-style buildings and the Mascagni Terrace.
The province of Livorno has lots of delightful destinations, that are perfect for summer holidays. Some of the most famous destinations are Castiglioncello, Rosignano, Vada and Cecina.
