This part of Livorno is lovely. However, if you walk the canal area you're likely to see little apart from apartments, a few small restaurants and of course the canal. Seeing the area from a boat delivers a greater experience. The history surrounding this area...More

The canal trip was very enjoyable as we passed by many lovely buildings. One could see the how the canals were so important to this port city. We had a great tour guide who explained everything.

Obviously not Venice, but delightful for Livorno as a working port city. Livorno is filled with places of interest and historic importance.

We have never been to Venice so can't can't comment on whether Livorno looks like Venice. But the Little Venice is pleasant enough for an afternoon stroll. Walking along the canal is particularly enjoyable.
