The Frantoio Il Casone Antico olive press in Vada (in the municipality of Rosignano Marittimo, just 30 km south of Livorno) is one of the last remaining places to have both modern and traditional olive presses in full working order. Customers who take their olives to be pressed into oil can choose whether to use the old mill stones powered by steam, or the stainless steel aparatus that makes up the modern pressing system.

The Wine Roads of Tuscany
These are great fun for wine enthusiasts, but if you are going to actually consume wine in a number of wineries in one day, you are advised, for obvious reasons, to get a chauffeur driven car to drive you around! If you are planning to stay for a few days, there is plenty of good accommodation. Follow this link, for example, to see a few of the places to stay in the Castagneto Carducci municipality in Livorno Province (on the Costa degli Etruschi wine road).
TuscanyBUS.com is a branch of the well-known Livorno Citysightseeing company, offering low cost bus services between the cruise ship shuttle bus arrival point in Livorno city centre and the popular tourist destinations of Florence and Pisa.

This will be in addition to the already well-established services to Pisa and Florence. All services depart from Livorno city centre and run on selected dates (see below for details).
