If you don't like to walk or take a shuttle bus, then a taxi is a good alternative to go to the city center or train station. The center is located a few kilometers from the port. The journey takes 15-20 minutes and count on approximately € 20 per taxi (4 persons one way).

Most cruise lines provide a shuttle bus (whether or not complimentary) from your cruise ship to the center of Livorno. In the beginning, these buses run very frequent, but later in the day it can happen that you have to wait longer until the bus is full. The shuttle bus takes you in 15 minutes to the back of Piazza Grande, near the Tourist Office.

From Piazza Grande you can explore the rest of the city on foot or go by bus N° 1 to the train station for an excursion to Pisa, Florence or Lucca. Just behind the Cathedral you can also take bus N° 10 to Pisa.


Walk from the cruise port to the city center of Livorno

If you dock in the industrial area of the port (the case for most large cruise ships), it's not recommended to walk around in the harbor. It is too crowded and dangerous because of the many trucks, cranes, container trailers, etc. Moreover, you are 3-4 kilometers from the city center. You would lose too much valuable time.

If you dock close to the cruise terminal at Porto Mercantile, you can walk to the city center. From the pier, there are signs to the city and the nearest bus stop. Opposite the Fortezza Vecchia, one of the old forts, there is an exit gate of the port area. From there it is a 20 minute walk to the center.

TIP: The N° 5 and N° 8R bus stop that you will see at the exit of the port are not interesting as the timetables don't match with the ones of the cruise lines. Also the next stops are outside the city center.
