On a cruise previously done Rome twice so decided to have a look around the local area, working port so did not expect much
Pleasantly surprised, free shuttle bus to the port entrance then a short walk into town, there are a couple of old churches and a fortress on the beachfront follow the main road to the local shopping area plenty of shops to browse, stop and have a coffee
Nice long seafront to stroll along

A short, easy walk from the town's centre. Day/night felt safe and enjoyable to see, running parallel to the coast/terminals.

Porta Livorno is one of the historic places you can visit as you walk from The Michelangelo Fortress to the port entrance. According to the Port Mobility web site Porta Livorno, is a large monumental gate built in 1761 by Pope Clement XIII, with the aim of connecting the port with the north side of the city, as attested by the tombstone above the door. Located in the heart of the historic port of Civitavecchia, the door owes its name to the fact that it looks towards the Tuscan city of the same name. The work is the demonstration of how over the centuries several Popes have been interested in the development and fortification of the Port of Civitavecchia considered for its position a strategic garrison, in addition to being one of the most active maritime ports of the whole Tyrrhenian Sea.

Wanted to self tour from cruise ship to Pisa.

Taxi wanted 200 Euro. Tour guide wanted 200 Euro
even a shuttle bus to the town costs 15 Euro for 3 of us.

Whilst the train is only 8 Euro return, taking just 15 mins taxis won’t take you to the station for under 50 Euro as it’s too small fare.

Even if you did take the shuttle bus you still need to get another bus to the railway station only to take another bus to Pisa… it’s made extremely hard to self guide yourself to Pisa, and still not less than 100 Euro for 3, even though the train is very cheap.

One guest told us they previously tried the 200 Euro taxi /8 guest from different groups, only those other sharing guests were Italian, didn’t return to the car in Pisa, made them almost late for the ship and left them paying the whole taxi bill themselves.. hence we gave this a miss.

It’s all about the $$$$$ in this port, it feels purposely hard to travel around unless your prepared to spend big $$$ or have lots of appetite for time and risk.

Don’t bother, Hire a car, do a holiday in Italy, take a ships tour but avoid the Livorno port taxis or tours is my recommendation, it’s just full of risk.

Been to Livorno 4 times, only the 1st and the 4th time we tried to get off the ship to visit, it appears Covid made us forget why we never bothered getting off after the 1st time.. nothing changed.

Not many people seem to know about Livorno, but it is a pretty place and has a nice port. If you have been to Florence, Pisa and surrounds before, you should consider visiting here. After a stroll around the port, grab the Hop On, Hop Off bus and have a good look around Livorno as there are some lovely spots, including taking the bus to the top of the black mountain (Montenero).

Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t on cruise, we were on a day out from pisa, but why anyone would want to get off and see this very bland, boring city is beyond me. We travelled by train from lucca via pisa and walked from the train station which is about a 30 minute walk. The only thing saying this city from a one start is the canal, water inlet that runs thorough the city to the ocean and you can pick that up as a way of walking from the train station to the city centre. The port is clearly modelled on Naples or the other way round, yet is so much more lacking in atmosphere, heritage and interest.

Porta Livorno is a huge monumental passage built in 1761 to connect the port with Civitavecchia’s north side. A memorial stone over the gate commemorates the request of Pope Clemens XIII. Quite interestingly, the gate owes its name to the fact that it looks towards the Tuscan city with the same name. Almost completely destroyed after the bombings of 1943, Porta Livorno was restored to symbolize the city’s importance once again as both a commercial and tourist port. Sadly, the view of the gate from the city side is not so pretty.

We did a tour of Porta Livorno and found it to be a busy port and interesting town to walk around before we went on to Lucca. It was a Sunday, so not many shops were open - would like to be there on a weekday.

Our ship, Norwegian Jade, docked here on August 21 this year. The port was clean and accommodating as customs was nearby and there was a market to pick up any last minute travel items or gifts, souvenirs, etc. and at the back of the terminal was where tour buses and private tour drivers waited with signs with their client's names and helpful instructions or directions. Its a fairly large port area with several docking areas that comprise the entirety of the port, which covers a fairly large area adjacent to the city and the portion of Livorno known as Little Venice because of its canal. Livorno is a lovely old world city with new growth visible and site of the Central Market which is the largest indoor market in all of Europe.
