The lighthouse of Livorno Italy


On our journey to Corsika we needed to stay one day in Livorno, an Italian
harbour town, because of a lack of Ferries. So we had time to explore the maritime history of the city a little and came across the lighthouse which was build 1304, then destroyed in the second world war. Rebuilt in 1956 to match the old tower it´s white Light can reach 24 miles out into the sea nowadays. In the harbour we have seen the traditional Sailing Ship Amrigo
Vespucci, an amazing craft.
