This is the old fort at the port. Interesting enough to look around but we didn't spend a lot of time here. The new fort is also open in town.

This, the old fort, protected the port for many, many years. It is a most impressive construction, and well worth a visit.

Very attractive old fort located close to the port, we had a nice gentle stroll early evening, good fresh air and not crowded with tourists, a really relaxing time

It was a cloudy day in april, so we had the caste for our own. That way we could roam the fortress, trying which doors and passages were open. Have a look in old, partly demolished tunnels, relive history in the caves ans basements. And of course, climb the tower and enjoy the view of city and harbour.
The entrace on the back side (sea) was hard to find. They should make more of it! since the fortress and the info of its history was worthwhile. For both kids and parents

Between the destroyed walls of the fortress it's difficult to imagine the past splendour of Livorno Port during Renaissance. Anyway, there're some interesting halls on the basements.
