How lovely on the last morning of our minibreak to find the Museo only five minutes walk from the hotel. A stunning building with friendly staff and many parts to explore. Don’t miss this jewel in Livorno.

This fabulous building houses a wonderful collection of Italian impressionist artworks. The building itself is a marvel inside with exquisite venetian glass chandeliers. Many of the works capture life in the 19thc countryside depicting peasants, war, farms and fine portraits. If your travels will take...More

This old mansion does not look like much from the outside, but the beautifully appointed rooms on the ground and first floors was something else. Go for the house, and the paintings inside were a plus. We spent a fair amount of time in each...More

Tucked away in a quiet street in the south end of this attractively gritty city which is superficially devoid of cultural attractions is this lovely villa. The interior alone is worth the visit. Downstairs are three lushly over decorated gems of rooms, plus a staircase...More

This museum is small enough to go through thoroughly in an hour. All signs are in Italian, so I probably should have got the English audio headphones. The tiny animal sculptures and jewelry from the Etruscan period feature such contemporary simple shapes--still very appealing. And...More

Lovely old villa set in mature nice parkland. The rooms are opulent and each with a very interesting and varied collection of art ranging from Impressionism to Modernism. Helpful and interesting guides. So under publicised perhaps because of proximity to Pisa & Florence. Only 4...More
