Livorno is an Italian port city on the west coast of Tuscany. It is known for its fish specialties, renaissance fortifications and the modern port for cruise ships. The central Mascagni Terrace, an avenue along the sea with a checkerboard floor, is the main meeting point of the city. The ramparts of the 16th century Fortezza overlook the port and open onto the New Venice district of Livorno.
Nearby are the baroque octagonal church with the dome of Santa Caterina and the Fortezza Nuova, a Medici fortress transformed into a park. The Monument of the Four Moors is a Renaissance statue of Grand Duke Ferdinando I surrounded by four chained moors. Even more inside, there is the food market for food products, which offers gourmet restaurants. The Provincial Museum of Natural History of the Mediterranean is a natural history museum housed in a former villa surrounded by gardens. Nearby, the Museo Civico Giovanni Fattori, also housed in a villa, features Italian paintings of the nineteenth century. To the south-east of the city, in the hills, is the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie of Montenero.
