For the time being, the cheapest way to get to Livorno from Pisa Airport, and vice versa, is by using local transport:
By bus and train - there is currently work underway at Pisa airport to provide a continuous "Pisa Mover" train connection with Pisa Central railway station. This work is due to be completed in December 2015.
There are 15 bus routes covering both the centre and outlying areas. Tickets cost €1.20 per journey and are valid for 75 minutes from the moment they are validated (on board the bus when you start your journey).
Tickets are available from tobacconists. There is a small yellow machine on the bus where you should stamp your ticket when you get on. If your journey involves taking more than one bus, or the bus plus funicular railway (Montenero), you only need to stamp one ticket at the beginning of your journey (as long as you are within the 75 minute limit).
Starting from Livorno Railway Station, the Number One takes a straight route along Viale Carducci right down to Piazza della Repubblica, then down Via Grande (get off here for Via della Madonna and the Central Market area).
If you are already in the city centre and want to head out along the coast, you can catch the number 1 bus at Stop C in Via Grande, the first stop after Piazza Grande, as you head towards the port (cathedral on your left). The bus continues to the old Medici Port (past the Quattro Mori statue) at the far end of Via Grande. Here it turns left and follows the coast road south, past the Terrazza Mascagni and the Grand Hotel Palazzo. Get off here for the Fattori art gallery, a 5 minute walk along Via Forte dei Cavalleggeri. The bus passes the Church of San Jacopo and the Naval Academy, and then goes through Ardenza Mare and on to Antignano where it turns round at the stop called Miramare (next to the Baracchina Azzurra bar) to come back along the exact same route.

It was inaugurated on 19th August 1908 and was the first electric railway of its kind in Italy. Until 1963, it represented the main means of transport for Montenero, until the building of the panoramic road leading directly to the Sanctuary.
There are two trains running up and down the 656m track, each one capable of carrying 40 passengers. They can transport up to 580 people per hour.
