Once you find yourself in the port of Livorno and you have a few hours to spend and enjoy, you can embark yourself in a nice journey and try to do a little sightseeing.

To go out of the port, the best solution is to call a taxi. Here, the taxi can come inside the port, so it will be easier for you since you won’t waste too much time on transportation. The taxi will take you from the ship and get you into town in less than 20 minutes, and you’ll only have to pay ~ 20 euros.

The small port of Voltri is only 20 km West of Genoa and it is one of those cities whose centers are just outside the port gate. Going out for a nice dinner or just a walk is something nobody should miss.

Inside the port there is a shuttle bus nonstop service available and walking on the pier is not allowed. The service is free of charge if the ride goes only to the gate close to the Immigration Office – which is more inside the port, but close to the Seamen’s Club Stella Maris. To go to the gate closer to the city, the shuttle bus service requires a 5 Euro fee (regardless the number of passengers). To go there, just ask the driver to take you to the exit close to Pam Supermarket.
