Livorno Shop Opening Times:
Most shops in the port city of Livorno open at about 9.00 or 9.30am and many close for lunch at 12.30 or 1pm. Some of the larger stores and chain stores now stay open all day, especially in the main thoroughfare Via Grande. On Sundays they are generally closed (see below).
Afternoon shopping hours in Livorno start at about 4pm but this can be later in the summer. They generally close at 8pm. On Monday mornings shops are closed (except for food shops, markets and supermarkets). In Livorno, however, shops open on the first Sunday of every month (but sometimes only in the afternoon, and not in July or August). Many small businesses also close for a short period during August - the 'Chiuso per Ferie' (closed for holidays) sign is a familiar sight.
The Central Market of Livorno, as well as the food shops and stalls in the market area open at about 8am, closing at 1pm from Monday to Saturday. Supermarkets open all day from 8.00am to 8.00pm, and are often open on Sunday mornings as well.
