November 3rd – Strolling Livorno

From the big industrial port of Livorno, we normally head off to Tuscany's more famous (and more beautiful) cities of Florence, Pisa and Lucca. However, we didn't fancy the long trek today, so we decided to explore Livorno in a bit more detail.

This is hardly the most lively of towns, and on a Sunday it was even quieter than normal, so this was a day to do as the locals do – take a stroll along the surprisingly nice waterfront, and settle in for a coffee in a busy neighbourhood cafe.

Livorno is never going to feature on Tracy's "I could live there" index, but it's not a bad place for a quiet Sunday.
