Tourism in Livorno – known as Leghorn in English - has increased over past few years with more and more number of tourists taking notice of the city and is no longer treated as just a stopover while visiting Florence and Pisa.
Breaking its image as a conventional Port city, Livorno is now home to a plethora of bars, cafés and restaurants adding onto the charm of city’s historical monuments like Quattro Mori, Fortezza Vecchia (Old Castle), Fortezza Nuova (New Castle), Old English Cemetery; City’s top attractions like Terrazza Mascagni, Sanctuary of Montenero and Acquario di Livorno and the newest kids on the block like – Cavallino Matto! While it was one of the most sought after place by people like Francesco I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, it was also an escape route for people victimized for their religion, race, cultures and customs.
