The space

Livorno was defined as an "ideal town" during the Italian Renaissance. Today, it reveals its history through the structure of its neighbourhoods, crossed by canals and surrounded by fortified town walls, through the tangle of its streets, which embroider the town's Venice district, and through the Medici Port characteristically overlooked by towers and fortresses leading to the town centre. Designed by the architect Bernardo Buontalenti at the end of the 16th century, Livorno underwent a period of great town planning expansion at the end of the 17th century. Near the defensive pile of the Old Fortress, a new fortress, together with the town-walls and the system of navigable canals, was then built. After Pisa's silting up, distance from the sea and loss of dominance, Livorno took over as the main port in Tuscany.

In my house you will feel at home, free to discover one of the most fascinating area in Tuscany. From here you can reach by train either Florence (one hour and a half) or Pisa (ten minutes). Or you can just enjoy the most fascinating places in my town: Terrazza Mascagni, an amazing terrace on the see, the Venezia area with canals, nice restaurants and night bars where live music is performed almost every night, a magic sunset on Calafuria rocks, facing Gorgona Island whose skyline reminds of a woman's profile floating on the surface of the sea. Don't miss the Italian style "aperitivo" from 6 p.m. to late in the night, often with live music.

My apartment is at the fourth and last floor of a building dating back to the sixties: parquet is everywhere and this makes it comfortable. The windows on the roof let the natural light come in whereas a pleasant breeze coming from opposite open windows won't make you miss a conditioning system.
The kitchen is fully equipped with oven and refrigerator so that you can prepare nice food by yourself. Nearby there is a big market where you can find fresh vegetable and fruit, fresh fish and delicious bread and "schiacciata". Don't miss our "torta di ceci", something you can not explain but only try. You can have it "plain" or with "focaccia" or "pan francese" (French bread): in this case, it is called 5and5, because after the second world war it was sold for 5 cents of bread and 5 cents of "torta".
Come on, join us in this amazing and unusual world!


Please note that parking is not easy in this area: you can park your car for free 15 minutes walk far from the apartment (or 3 bus stop). If you find a place nearby, you have to pay during day time, from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm and from 3:00 pm to 8 pm, for maximum 2 hours.

One more note for all those who ask for sea and beaches (of course..): sandy beaches are located in two areas: 10 km north of Livorno, the so called Calambrone area, and 27 km south of Livorno, Rosignano Marittimo. These are the closest areas which you can easily reach by car. If you love rocks, then you can reach rocky shores by bike or by bus as they are close to the center of Livorno: small rocky beaches are "I tre ponti" or "La Vela" or amazing rocks where you can easily bath and swim around snorkeling are a bit farer: this is the famous "Calafuria" area.

Having travelled through Rome and Florence which are heaving with tourists at this time of year, Livorno felt like a more authentic Italian experience. Fulvia's apartment is both bright and spacious in a real italian neighborhood. Lines hang with newly washed clothes, the aroma o…

We wanted a couple of days by the beach during our stay in Tuscany, so we thought this would be ideal. During our stay we took bus 10 to Calambrone, a sandy beach that's about 20 minutes away, which gave us what we wanted. Fulvia met us at the property, gave us a quick introduct…

Response from Fulvia&Ale:
Thank you Natalie for your feedback. Glasses and dishes may not have been washed properly by the previous guests so, thank you for advising: I will ask the lady who does the cleaning to check them every time. As far as the kettle and the toaster are concerned, they are not "basic kitchen amenities" in Italy. I'm sure that when I come to UK, I'll find them in any apartment I'll stay in. You also mentioned in your private feedback an odd bad smell in the small bathroom: in old houses this happens and depends on the condominium facilities and not the apartment. I can't do much for this but flush the toilet from time to time. I wrote in your feedback that you are welcome back at anytime and you still are. But please consider that you are staying in a private apartment and not a five-star hotel room.

We visited Livorno for four nights and had an amazing time. Our flight was delayed on the evening we arrived and Fulvia very kindly collected us from the airport to save us arriving too late. Fulvia had left us a selection of snacks, food and drink to save us having to go to th…

Staying at Fulia's amazing apartment was a highlight of our holiday. We managed to get ourselves a little lost on the way there, and Fulvia was kind enough to come and rescue us, and take us straight to the apartment, which was amazing. She has provided us with some essentials …

Staying in Livorno at Fulvia's was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and her hospitality was second to none. On arrival we were collected from the station by a friend of hers, shown a few of the sights en route and were presented with a lovely welcome gift ( a really nice gesture…

We were traveling in the South of Italy when our plans went a bit agley, and we sent Fulvia a message hoping to stay in her flat that very night. She got back to us right away, came back from Florence just to pick us up at the train station, and made sure we were comfortable. The…
