What to expect from Via Ricasoli, Piazza Cavour and around
Via Ricasoli is one of Livorno's main shopping streets. It is a pedestrianised area with a mixture of local fashion boutiques, jewellers and other stores, as well as a choice of chain stores. The street leads from Piazza Cavour to Piazza Attias, two popular squares with a varied choice of stores of their own.
On Saturday afternoons Via Ricasoli is a popular meeting place for Livorno's youth, and can become congested with people walking up and down: fine if you are on foot, but not good for getting through on a bicycle!
When it's time for a break, there are several bars and cafés in Piazza Cavour and along Via Ricasoli.
