We chose to stay in Livorno off our cruise ship and planned to look around the historic parts. No signposting to the fort. Because of the canals the correct way is not necessarily straight ahead. Entrance way was so low key and pathways so unkept...More

I am in Italy on business and had the opportunity to spend a day in Livorno. I stopped in with a friend at the Fortezza Nuova. The views of the canals of "Little Venice" were great from the fort, but the fort is in poor...More

The "New" Fort is an integral part of Livorno's Little Venice. Once a key defense post of the canal, it is now part of an urban park. An interesting place to spend an afternoon.

This piece of history has not been treated well by the passing of time. Obviously this was once an important fortification. Interesting.

This was a fort, it has been abandoned and converted into a park, nice for a walk, in the good weather would be good for a picnic, it is surrounded by canals, nice place to take photos

Surrounded by canals, the fortress suffered several changes during centuries and now it's just a shadow of what it was. Anyway, the views from some of the ramparts are nice.

Time has not been kind to this sprawling edifice, severely damaged by shelling in WWII. While reasonably interesting from the outside (similar to many other medieval forts), the inside has been left to feral cats and numerous birds. The tunnel walk to enter was spooky,...More

I found the new fortress just as unpleasant looking as the old one and can't help but wonder why the don't do something useful with these old forts. Put some nice shops and restaurants inside. So many other places in Europe have done this so...More
