What to expect from Livorno

Think of Tuscany, and Livorno most probably won't be the first place that comes to mind. Even its English name, Leghorn, doesn’t ring a bell to many.

And yet the port city of Livorno is Tuscany’s third largest city after Florence and Prato, with a lively population of around 156,000 and an extremely favourable position on the Tuscan coast.
