Porto di Livorno (Livorno Port Authority)
The port of Livorno overlooks the Alto Tirreno and is located in the North-Western part of Tuscany. It is mainly inside the coast line, well protected from the winds of the south and west quadrant.
The port of Livorno, classified as Core within the trans-European transport networks (TEN-T), is a multi-purpose airport, equipped with infrastructures and means that can accommodate any type of ship and handle any type of goods and every type of traffic (LO-LO, rolling RO-RO, liquid and solid bulk cargo, new cars, cruises, ferries, forest products, machinery, etc.). The infrastructural equipment of the Port allows the connection to the main national road and railway arteries and to the airport areas of Pisa and Florence. Thanks to its rather large hinterland, mainly consisting of Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Umbria and Marche, very active from an entrepreneurial and industrial point of view, the Port of Livorno handles a large quantity of goods.
The port of Livorno is characterized by important monumental and historical evidence of which must be taken into account in the study and planning of future developments of the port for the purpose of their further enhancement and integration. In fact both in the old port (eg Porto Mediceo, Fortezza Vecchia, Curvilinea dam) and in the new port (for example Torre del Marzocco) there are numerous signs that testify to the great past of the port.See more
