I spent a bit of time wandering around Livorno, when i visited on a cruise. I was expecting there to be a little more fort stuff, history boards, etc, but after entering through the tunnel, all it was was a unkept park area, with some seats, a few small food stalls, and nothing much else. It still is a very impressive structure from the outside

Bang in the centre of town, surrounded by a canal way, this fort looks solid and impregnable from the outside. Inside, now it’s just a disused municipal park. Worth a quick wander round but not much to see.

I was disappointed, not only was it not looked after but the whole site was a mess and it seemed an unsafe part of the city. It seemed to be a hiding place for illegal street traders possibly drug dealers. We promptly left!

We were not impressed with the fort or as it happened the whole of Livorno.We can see why most people choose to do the Pisa excursion from here.As we did the last time we were here.Would not stop off here again.

Military fort inside Venetian quarter. Inside the fort is a children's playground where our kids enjoying playing while we have a panoramic view from the fort walls on piazza della Republica.

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 you weren't entirely sure you'd be safe!
Park inside was nice enough to sit and cool down, although brown and dry in August.
Kids play area was closed for renovation. They could really do with tidying up the whole place.

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 condition. Quite run down. The park was littered and there were broken bottles - not a great thing for young children. I do not recommend visiting Fortezza Nuova except for the opportunities for excellent photographs of the canals in Livorno.

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.

One way in and out but a nice quiet place to climb up a bit and see some of the city around the castle. Plenty of shaded areas and several places to sit on a bench to relax. Walking paths need to be maintained, some are covered in mud and sunken.

Walk through a tunnel and emerge in a park within a fortress. Probably a good place to visit with children. Good photo opportunities and a pleasant enough place to sit.
