The suites and apartments of Poggio ai Santi are furnished with natural materials and colour schemes to match the Tuscan hills and the omnipresent sea. They combine space, light and tradition. At Poggio ai Santi, you will rediscover the joy of opening a garden door, of breathing the wonderful fragrances of maritime pine trees and lavender or rosemary. A few steps away, you can see horses and donkeys wandering freely in the park. The splendid panorama of natural countryside stretching to the coast - 5 kilometers below - will keep our guests enthusiastic, along with the Isle of Elba and Corsica standing out against the blue of the sky and that of the sea. | |

Revision as of 18:06, 4 April 2009
Livorno is in Tuscany.
Livorno is on the Tyrrhenian sea and is the second biggest port in Italy.
Pisa airport (code: PSA) Galileo Galilei.
Main train station is Livorno Centrale. Take bus number 1 to go to town center and then to the port in about 20 minutes.
Autostrada A12, uscita Livorno; for maps and tolls see:  (no pages in English as per 14 November 2004).
From Pisa, Piombino, Florence and other cities.
Direct ferry routes exist to
Porto Vechio. It is best to book early to avoid over booking.
Many cruise ships stop here for at least a full day to allow guests to tour Rome. Guests not taking cruise ship arranged tours can take a shuttle (supplied by the port) to the port entrance, walk 10-15 minutes to a train station, and take a commuter train (cost in Fall 2009 was 9 Euros roundtrip) to Rome. Locals will happily point the way.
Bus number 1 is a shuttle from train station to the port and vice-versa. Ticket for one hour of travel is 0,85 Euros, daily ticket is 3,20 Euros. For self-reliant cruise passengers, this is the most economical way to reach trains to Pisa and Florence. See http://www.atl.livorno.it/tiposerv.html for a map.
