Lonely Planet review

No trip to Livorno is complete without a stroll along (and photo shoot of) this dazzling 'work of art' – an elegant terrace with stone balustrades that sweeps gracefully along the seafront in a dramatic chessboard flurry of black-and-white checks.

When it was built in the 1920s it was called Terrazza Ciano after the leader of the Livorno fascist movement, but 40 years later the city changed its name to that of Livorno-born opera composer Pietro Mascagni (1863–1945).
