Fortezza Nuova outlook

Fortezza Nuova. The new fortress (16th century) that sits slap bang in the middle of Livorno’s historic centre. Surrounded by water on all sides, this small footbridge is the only way to access the fortress, which now is a public park with an exhibition hall.

Although the park was closed to the public, I was able to come in and take some photos. The fortress offers great views over the city centre. Here Piazza Garibaldi and Scali delle Cantine.

Scali del Pontino (the little bridge) and Via Solferino that stretches all the way to Porta San Marco.

Pontino and the northern part of Venezia, the cranes of the container port in the distance.
