Terrazza Mascagni


This wide promenade along the waterfront at the southern part of town overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea and is a favorite spot for locals to stroll and meet in good weather, as well as for joggers and runners.

The 8,700-square-meter terrace is paved in a dramatic chessboard pattern of more than 34,000 black and white tiles, and is separated from the sea by a long balustrade. Even before the terrace was built in the late 1920s, it was a popular local gathering place, with an amusement park and places to swim. The orchestra pavilion is a replica of the original built in the 1930s and destroyed during World War II.

The Acquario di Livorno is on the Terrazza Mascagni, and beyond the aquarium, the seafront promenade passes the Accadémia Navale (Naval Academy).
