Visitors to the port of Livorno, set into the coastline of a bustling metropolitan on the west-coast of Italy, will immediately be struck by its size. Dockyard cranes stretch towards the Mediterranean skyline and colossal freight ships prowl the harbour, all to facilitate the port’s yearly haul of 30 million tonnes of incoming cargo.
Though much of the predominantly industrial port is inaccessible to pedestrians, the cruise terminal is a welcoming open-plan space featuring a food court and free Wi-Fi. A shuttle bus service is also available for travel into the heart of the city. This short trip takes passengers over a canal teeming with small private boats before stopping in the shadow of the Palazzo Communale, Livorno’s 18th century town hall that reflects the city’s distinctive neo-renaissance architectural style.
The port of Livorno offers a variety of routes for passengers wanting to explore the Mediterranean and beyond. There are plenty of daily excursions across the pristine Tyrrhenian sea, with stops in the mountainous French isle of Corsica and the Italian islands of Scilly and Sardinia further south. Longer-haul trips into Barcelona and Tangier Med in Morocco leave on a weekly basis too, both routes skirting the ocean border between Europe and Africa.
If you are driving from Bologna, Milan or other major Italian cities, you will need to get on the A1 motorway. To get to the 'Stazione Marittima', the main ferry terminal for passengers, you will need to exit the A1 motorway.
