Cruise ships stop at Livorno in Italy as it is half an hour's drive from Pisa & one & a half hours from Florence.
As we had been to Florence last time we opted for a boat tour of the waterways of Livorno. It was an interesting perspective & we were able to see the old buildings, bridges & statues along the canals.
We then had a little time in the town itself & I couldn't believe how much litter & grafitti there were. Of course we found time for a delicious ice cream while we were there!
This is the view of the harbour wall & lighthouse as we sailed away (there is one opposite too).
