Many cruise ships stop here for at least a full day to allow guests to tour Florence and/or Pisa. Guests not taking cruise ship arranged tours can take a shuttle (supplied by the port) to the the downtown area. It offers a decent shopping experience, but not compared to Florence. A further 10-20 minute walk (or another bus ride) gets you to a train station. There you can take frequent departures for either Pisa or Florence. If hoping for the latter, ask for a train that goes to the Firenze Santa Maria Novella. Locals will happily help. If just stopping for the day and you wish to maximize your time in Florence, you should consider taking a cab from your ship to and from the Livorno train station.
Bus number 1 is a shuttle from train station to the port and vice-versa. Ticket for one hour of travel is 1,00 Euros, daily ticket is 3,20 Euros. For self-reliant cruise passengers, this is part of the most economical way to reach trains to Pisa and Florence. A map is online .
Cantina Senese in Borgo Cappucino famous for Caccucio and Black Rise
"Ponce alla livornese" is optimal to finish a meal (warm drink with coffee and rum).
Livorno is a good starting point and base for a tour of Tuscany. You can reach Pisa in half an hour, Lucca and Florence in about an hour. (See note under "Get in" "By Boat" above) In a well-organized day you can tour Chianti-side going to Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena and Volterra and be back for dinner; return before cruise ship departure could be problematic.
