It is located along the coast of the Ligurian Sea and is one of the most important Italian ports, both as a commercial port and tourist, industrial center of national importance, long in decline.
Of all the cities in Tuscany it is usually considered the most modern, although in its territory are present different historical, artistic and architectural survived the massive bombing of the Second World War. The city greatly expanded from the second half of the sixteenth century by the Medici family first and the Lorena later, was important free port frequented by many foreign merchants, home to consulates and shipping companies. This helped to say, since the end of the sixteenth century, the characters of multiethnic and multicultural city par excellence, of which survive important remains, such as churches and national cemeteries, palaces, mansions and public works inextricably linked to the names of important foreign communities They attended the free port until the second half of the nineteenth century. This international vocation led to identify the city as Leghorn in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, Livourne in France, in Spain Liorna etc., Similar to the most important state capitals of the time.
Among the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, addition to the initiation of the process of industrialization, Livorno was also a tourist destination of international concern for the presence of renowned beach resorts and spas, which gave the city the name of Montecatini the sea .
The city is famous for hosting the Shrine of Montenero, dedicated to Our Lady of Grace Patron of Tuscany, as well as being the home to prestigious personalities like Modigliani, Pietro Mascagni, Giovanni Fattori, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, and many others.

Monuments and places of interest:
The Cistern
After the destruction suffered during the Second World War and the subsequent mutilations inflicted on the city with the reconstruction, Livorno has lost much of its historical legacy, although resist vestiges of its various stages, especially the late baroque and neo-classical period.
The complex which is substantially contained the history of the city is the sixteenth-century Old Fortress, in which are still identifiable settlements dating back to the passage from the Bronze Age to the Iron Age, finds of Etruscan and Roman times, as well as substantial evidence of the period Medieval, as the cylindrical tower and the remains of the fortifications of Pisa. In the port area are not lacking then remains of the port of Pisa, a time characterized by numerous towers, as the lamp and that, now reduced to ruins, the Maltarchiata. In any case, plants are also found in the medieval chapel of St. Stephen the Wolves, in the church of San Martino di Salviano and in the Parish of St. Andrew in Limone.
The fifteenth century, which marked the beginning of Florentine rule, coincided with the construction of the Tower of Marzocco, in which architecture can seize a reference to the Tower of the Winds in Athens. However, it was not until the late sixteenth century that the modest settlement Livorno was transformed by the Medici, in a dynamic port city, characterized by an urban regular, closed within a pentagon fortified. In early interventions late Renaissance, like the Palazzo Medici, were joined by buildings based on the research of extreme functionality. A lot of little streets opened into corrispondeza the central Piazza Grande, which inspired the architect Inigo Jones in the conception of the Covent Garden in London. On the sidelines of the square, surrounded by arcades mirror of Pieroni, it was built the cathedral, a single nave, with wooden ceiling decorated with paintings by Jacopo Chimenti and Possagnano.
The city Medici, designed by Bernardo Buontalenti, was characterized by massive fortifications deliminate a ditch district; north of the city, starting from the existing Old Fortress, the walls extending to the mighty New Fortress, which is still one of the most interesting architectural complexes of Livorno. Outside of the curtain wall, before the Medici port, the early seventeenth century was erected the Monument of the Four Moors, a remarkable work of Giovanni Bandini and Pietro Tacca bound to honor the Grand Duke Ferdinando I de 'Medici.
Freed slaves, G. Baratta, in the church of San Ferdinando
While the promulgation of the Laws Livornine favored the rise of numerous places of worship and cemeteries national. During the Medici remember, for example, the synagogue, among the largest in Europe, the church of the Greek States, characterized by a remarkable iconostasis, the church of the Madonna, with the altars of four national groups, as well as the Armenian, with dome covered in foil. Among the cemeteries worth recalling the English Cemetery in Via Verdi, which is the oldest non-Catholic-Protestant cemetery in Italy and the oldest, still existing in the Mediterranean.
In architecture, the simple architectural models of the sixteenth century survived throughout the seventeenth century. Only in the eighteenth century they claimed the late Baroque taste, found in the Sanctuary of Montenero and in the Venezia Nuova district, where the church arose longitudinal plan of St. Ferdinand (which houses sculptures by Giovanni Baratta) and Central St. Catherine (which was later placed a shovel Vasari); between residential buildings are to be reported Huigens Palace and the nearby Palace of Marble columns, both located along the street Borra. Particularly active at the beginning of the century was the architect and sculptor Giovan Battista Foggini, creator not only of interventions in different factories civil, religious and military, but also author of the spectacular monument to Marco Alessandro del Borro inside the cathedral.
The enlightened policy of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany and the climate of mutual tolerance between the various ethnic communities inside the port, the foundations were laid for the construction of the first non-Catholic church in all of Tuscany (the greek orthodox church of the Holy Trinity, destroyed), and the opening of major booksellers, printers and prestigious theaters; Here, for example, it was published the third edition of the Encyclopédie, as many writers as Tobias Smollett and Carlo Goldoni, stayed in the villas built in pleasant places around Livorno.
Republic square
The nineteenth century saw the affirmation of the neo-classicism: an early example, in architecture, was the Teatro San Marco (1806, with paintings of Louis Ademollo), which was followed by a series of theatrical spaces and arenas for daytime shows; among these is the Teatro Goldoni, where architecture and engineering merged to create a feature and functional glass roof of the hall. In the first half of the same century architects such as Alessandro Gherardesca, Luigi de Cambray Digny, Pasquale Poccianti, Gaetano Gherardi, Giuseppe Cappellini Angiolo della Valle and Luigi Bettarini contributed to the building of aqueducts, churches, palaces, squares, neoclassical or neo-Renaissance, which , in the context of the so-called Livorno Polytechnique, [32] they changed the entire look of the ancient city and its suburbs Buontalenti. Among the works erected remember, for example, the imposing church of Soccorso, the Bagnetti of Stinky, the Pia Casa di Lavoro, the original core of Livorno Station San Marco, the arrangement of today's Piazza Cavour, Palazzo Larderei and the new tollgates, Alessandro Manetti and Carlo Reishammer, which enclosed the area subject to port. In any case, the building that best represents the nineteenth century Livorno is the Cistern, which Pasquale Poccianti completed between 1829 and 1842 with clear references to architecture Roman baths, the Pantheon and revolutionary architecture of Étienne-Louis and Boullée Claude-Nicolas Ledoux. Among the places the most important intervention is the coverage of the Royal Canal with the creation of the square of the Grand Dukes (now Republic Square), where they were erected statues of the Grand Dukes of Lorraine; among them was the remarkable monument to Leopold II, Paolo Emilio Demi, however that was damaged in 1849 and replaced with a second statue made by Emilio Santarelli some years later.
Internal Market of victuals
With the unification of Italy some of the main city squares were then adorned with large statues of the chief architects of the Risorgimento: Vincenzo Cerri created the monument to Cavour, while the best known Augusto Rivalta was commissioned to the marble statue of Garibaldi the equestrian monument to Vittorio Emanuele II in Piazza Grande. One of the first architectures relief after unification, it should be remembered the neo-Gothic temple Congregation Dutch Alemanna, in front of which, some years later, arose the large market supplies. Tourism balnerare century is instead linked to the construction of the Hotel Palace and the construction of a number of infrastructure for the resort where even today we hear echoes of a distant Belle Époque.
The twentieth century opened with the works vaguely Liberty Angiolo Badaloni (like Spa Acque della Salute, near which in 1910 was inaugurated the elegant Central Station, well-influenced floral) and other designers minor (authors of several villas in around the city), is addressed, in the years before World War II, the building of eclectic structures (such as the Palace of the Gallery and, in some ways, the new complex of the Spedali Riuniti) and die more rationalist (as the Government Palace), but the Pharaonic Family Mausoleum Ciano, who was supposed to dominate from the hill Monteburrone Livorno, was never completed.
The war caused extensive damage to the city center; reconstruction, inspired by the urban planning proposals presented before the war, led to a partial disruption buoyancy of the city and the construction of the controversial Grand Palace by Luigi Vagnetti. Over the next sixty years there is the construction of two important buildings: the new Synagogue and the Skyscraper of Piazza Matteotti, works respectively of Angelo Di Castro and Giovanni Michelucci.

Great warm welcome with red wine and bruschetta, and lots of hospitality from both! Clean spacious room with private bedroom, and every morning a good breakfast at the balcony. Alexandra and Stefano drove us everywhere we wanted, provided us with us with great tips and showed us around. Great place! Be aware though, no keys are provided so you have to count for really being guest, not as most airbnb's where the owner isn't there most of the time. But for sure a recommendation!

Thanks for the nice review Doreen :). I would like to say just one thing; On my ad, I clearly explain that it is my choice to not give the keys of the house. I try to give you the utmost privacy and total availability by having a "Garzone" available 24H that opens the door and accompanies you and pik up you, free, everywhere and every hour; This is also the style and spirit of Airbnb! Always I invite to read before booking, if you need a whole house, my ad has a delightful garden house call "La Posada"

We stayed for 1 night only (unfortunately) and really liked Alexandra's place. We were welcomed with wine and snacks, got tips from Stefano and had a great stay overall. We've used Airbnb a lot but have rarely experienced such kindness before.
