Since more than 40 years I have been stopping in Livorno just to leave it , yes by boat , direction…Sardinia island.
Never a walk , never a look around , never some time to shopping or seeing its streets , its buildings : it has been since ever just an harbour to me, not a city.
Some days ago I decided to go there & visit it and I found it very nice with beautiful old palaces & a great terrace overlooking the Tyrrheanian Sea , the Terrazza Mascagni, stunning!!
A great surprise indeed, nice old shops & I tasted a special very small panino = sandwich in English , called 5&5 ( made of bread & cheakpeas pizza ) because in the past the totale cost of this was 5 Italian Lira of bread & 5 Italian Lira of this pizza😂😂😂Then a great cacciucco by an historical restaurant www.labarcarola.it since 1935 serving the best typical Livornese fish soup in town.
Enjoy my photos & visit Livorno if you travel in Tuscany, you will love it as I did!
