Shuttle bus from Livorno to Livorno (city)
Most cruise lines provide a shuttle bus from your cruise ship to the center of Livorno. In most cases, you must pay a fee between €5 and €10 per person (roundtrip). In the beginning, these buses run very frequent, but later in the day it can happen that you must wait longer until the bus is full. You can expect long lines during peak times. The shuttle bus takes you in 15 minutes to Via Cogorano, alongside Piazza del Municipio, opposite Livorno town hall and just behind Piazza Grande. The Tourist Office is close by.
From Piazza Grande, you can explore the rest of the city on foot or go by LAM BLU bus (formerly bus N° 1) or LAM ROSSA bus (formerly bus N° 2) to the train station for an excursion to Pisa, Florence or Lucca. Some cruise lines offer a direct bus connection between the ship and Livorno train station, costing between €15 to €20 for a roundtrip.
