Overview

About the property

Apartment near Sea, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Double Living Room, Kitchen

The apartment is very large, about 100 square meters.

It is located in a vibrant and lively neighborhood, but the rooms are in the back and are enough quiet. It is facing a nice square which gives access to the sea boardwalk.

You are a 10 minute walk to the center and 5 minutes to the promenade along the sea side.

The apartment, recently renovated, consists of a spacious and bright double room with a sofa, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower and window. Ideal for enjoying the sea and walks on the promenade.

The neighborhood is safe, you can walk without problems alone both day and night. Nearby there are many shops.

If you cross the square there is a Coop supermarket, a pizzeria around the corner, a pharmacy not far away, the bakery and the post office are close. There are also restaurants and clubs to suit all tastes.

I recommend:

The typical cake of chickpeas (try it! it is called “Torta") at Pizzeria Da Cecco in via dei Cavalletti or Pizzeria I 4 Canti at corso Mazzini corner Piazza Mazzini.

The natural ice cream, like homemade, at Gelateria Caprilli at corner viale Italia – via dei Funaioli.

A “Ponce" at Bar Civili in via del Vigna, a historic gathering place equal to 50 years ago.

In the summer from Thursday to Sunday you can take fried fish from Jhonny Paranza, the kiosk in the square.

PARKING:

"Porta a Mare" 100 meters from the apartment, open from 07:00 to 01:00, out until 04:00, cost € 0.50 the first two hours, € 1.00 each subsequent hour.

Parking in Piazza Mazzini is not free (first hour 1€, second 1,50€, third 2€, after 3€/hour), it is free only in the night after 21:00 ultil 8:00. You can park for free in via Edda Fagni in front of Benetti Shipyard.

SEA - in a few minutes by bus or car you can reach the cliffs south of the city, recommended the beach of Cala del Leone, cliffs of Calignaia or the cliffs called Scogli Piatti. In town the promenade along seaside is ideal for long walks.

On request:

- Direct purchase from local farmers in the area of organic product;

- Walking tours of the city, in places of interest: the ancient district of Venice, the two Medici Fortress, the Terrace Mascagni, the Aquarium, the museum Giovanni Fattori, the natural history museum in the Mediterranean, the folkloric central market , a boat trip in the fairway through the historic center, the Sanctuary of Montenero.

HOUSE RULES

There are no special rules to be respected. I believe in respect between people. A clear and direct communication, without any embarrassment is the only requirement for a good relationship between people who meet for the first time. Please do NOT SMOKE in the house and NOT TO BRING PETS.

For any further information available. You just have to ask!

About Gabriele Volpi

I teach at high school. I love Livorno. I like the spirit of the people who live there. I like pizza and chickpeas cake, called "torta". I love sea and cliff, most beautiful cliff and beach are in Cala del Leone. I like the Venice neighborhood, the old part of town, with channels and two Medici fortresses.

Gabriele Volpi purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Gabriele Volpi chose Livorno

I use the apartment for work and sometimes I rent it. The apartment is located in a lively area, before it was a fisherman discrict. I love this property. The square is a green area. You have all in ypur hand: near the city center, near the sea. The noise of the square is quite reduced in the rooms, bus if you are used to total silence, my apartment is not your destination.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is on the second floor of a typical local building. Exposed beams, parquet floor, internally overlooking three courtyards.

The apartment is equipped with heating, TV, 3 fans, hair dryer, iron, linen and towels.

There is access to free and unlimited wi-fi.

There is no air conditioning, but there are three fans.

In bathroom there are soap, shampoo, etc.. So it should not miss anything. Do not hesitate to ask for anything you need.
