Pleasant streets intersected with canals
Livorno is an attractive port town on the west coast of Italy, situated in the Province of Livorno, which borders the region of Tuscany.
Also known as ‘Leghorn’ in English, Livorno is the third-largest port along this coast of Italy. (Foodie fans will be interested to learn that yes, the famous ‘leghorn’ breed of chicken comes from this region!).
Visitors can stroll Livorno’s pleasant streets intersected with canals and visit the city’s fortified town walls. However, for this particular leg of your Mediterranean cruise vacation we invite passengers aboard our luxury MSC cruise ship to travel inland, as several particularly stunning delights lie in store.
Not least of these is the city of Florence, one of the loveliest towns in Italy, if not all of Europe. We have organized a very special program ofexcursion packages for this destination that enables you to enjoy fabulous deals on local attractions together with plenty of opportunities for sightseeing.
Once you have left the ship, a bus ride will transfer you to the cities of Florence – or even Pisa and Lucca. It is worth venturing further afield during this part of your vacation as the region of Tuscany is exquisite; all three of these Tuscan cities offer an abundance of world-class Italian architecture, history, monuments and museums.
From the Leaning Tower of Pisa, to Lucca - ‘town of 100 churches’ - to mesmerizing Florence with its gentle domes and classical squares, passengers are in for a particularly delicious dose of pure Italian style, sophistication and soul.
