The Italian city and port of Livorno lies in the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany. Much of the original street layout and architecture has been retained in the New Venice area of the city. In this area visitors can see old bridges, narrow lanes, noblemen's houses and a network of canals that were used to connect its port to the city's warehouses. Also of interest are many fine examples of neo-classical buildings, museums, public parks and cultural institutions. Containing memorabilia, documents and operas by the composer Pietro Mascagni, who lived in the city, is the Museo Mascagnano and is well worth a visit. Organised by the Traditional Theatre of Livorno, some of Mascagni's operas are performed during the lyric music season.
The city's port is the third largest on Italy's west coast and provides many services and facilities including cargo handling and passenger services. The port's facilities include wheelchair ramps, toilets and shower facilities for passengers. There are also bars, restaurants, a conference centre, banks and a passenger information kiosk. From the port, there are ferry services to Bastia, Olbia, Golfo Aranci, Cagliari and Tunisia.
The small Italian island of Capraia (Isola di Capraia) is located off the coast of Tuscany and has a protected national park status and is rich in wildlife and has an unspoilt landscape. Capraia lies around 34 miles off the west coast of Italy and is 5 miles long and 2.5 miles across at its widest point. The island is popular with walkers and nature lovers who take to the island's hillside footpaths to take in the flora and fauna and the lovely views that are on offer. The island's coastline is dotted with rocky coves which are popular with tourists. Another way of exploring the island's coast is to take an organised boat trip. The island's west coast is steep and rocky and the east coast is characterised by gentle hills and valleys and is where the island's port is located. The island's two town's are Porto, where the port is, and the historic village of Capraia Isola, or locally called Paese, which is located on a headland at the base of a fortress, Forte di San Giorgio. The fortress was built to protect against pirate attack. On a promontory below the village is a watchtower and a picturesque abandoned monastery.
Capraia is connected by daily ferries from the Tuscan port of Livorno.
