Livorno was a great surprise! Widely known as port city I was not prepared for how beautiful it was or how peaceful and calm we found it to be. After the previous week of Venice and Verona it was a very nice contrast to have so much beautiful scenery mostly to ourselves. The previous reviewers citing a lack of good food must have stopped short of the places we found, which had some of the best seafood we had on the entire trip. We liked it here and plan to go back just to relax!
