We were here Christmas day. Everything is closed. It's nothing like Venice. Nothing really to see or do in this area. Nice for a little walk around but that's about it. We went here as a daytrip from Florence. So 20 euro per person to get there and almost 3 hours of traveling total by train.

Seriously... if you are in the area, walk around a but. Otherwise don't bother going.

If you are off a cruise ship and have decided against going to a headline destination, here is a nice surprise. A canal, pretty, though some less so, canal side buildings, boats, paths, views. Unexpected and all the nicer for that. No great walk from the city centre either - very memorable. The Piazza Cavour is a good place to start any walk.

Lovely to have a walk around if you have done the sight seeing in Florence and Pisa from cruise ships lots to see nice places to eat and drink in the day. Great to see the indoor food markets lots of lovely fresh provisions no wonder they say the Italians eat healthily.

This area is not only historic but has numerous narrow canals (and hence the name) along which are wonderful old houses rather than the grander Venetian palazzi. Like Venice these homes and houses are in different degrees of disrepair and restoration and it is the buildings that make the area interesting. So it is worth just wandering around. It will not take long.

In considering the “Venezia Nuova”, it's first of all necessary to bear in mind that, although this is the Livorno district which has best preserved its traditional characteristics, it doesn't correspond to the oldest part of the city. Actually once it was the northern outskirts of the historic city, as it is today, and took on an image of "historic center" only because the amphibious (indeed, Venetian) character of it prevented a cancellation of its pristine urban layout, such as instead it took place elsewhere in Livorno.
To realize this, just look at a map of the Livorno city center: you will see the location of "Venezia Nuova" with respect to the original pentagonal plan of Livorno, largely identifiable through canals and other water surfaces, designed by the great architect Bernardo Buontalenti (1531-1608) . In fact, this plan - still legible although soon modified compared to the original project - leaves at least half of “Venezia Nuova” (that is, the part north of the “Fosso Venezia”) outside its perimeter: .
Not only this: the "Venezia Nuova", like every other part of the city, was certainly not born from scratch during the urban creation of the early Medici period: many of the architectural and urban planning solutions that we see are gradually adopted in the following centuries. We cite just a few examples. The two main churches found in the area, Santa Caterina and San Ferdinando, were only built at the beginning of the 18th century; the so-called "Bottini dell’olio", underground oil depots installed in a building on the current Viale Caprera, date back to the same period. And above all, much of the district that now stands west of the "Fortezza Nuova" was built only starting from the second half of the 17th century, following the disposal of the western wing of the Fortress, which made it possible to sell by auction the surfaces. no longer occupied and therefore buildable.
Nonetheless, the visitor's feeling is that this "amphibious" neighborhood, bordered by winding canals, featuring numerous ramps ("scalandroni") that descend from the street level almost to the canals, maintains its unity, despite the different eras of formation, and that this unity is original and evocative. Evocative, in fact, of the real Venice, to a greater extent than any corner of any other Italian city. And this feeling is not dissolved by some infamous episodes, such as the demolition and reconstruction in ugly forms, that took place here and there in the 1950s.

You can find many trattorias and restaurants in this Venice area. In the center of Livorno not so many nice restaurants especially int the evening time. Full of people if events happening.

We enjoyed a couple of hours walk around the Nuova Venezia, from the New Fortress to the Old Fortress. Then we walked on through the buzzling main shopping area, and venured into the old covered market.

Some said "New Venice" is "Little Venice," or it was building "in the style of Venice." That is like saying Bakersfield is "little Hollywood." It just isn't. Still, it was a nice walk, with lots of interesting buildings. At one municipal building, a guard motioned us into a hallway and unlocked a door for us, showing us a beautiful glass chandelier.
