Getting from Civitavechia port to Rome is easy compare to Livorno port to Livorno Piazza Grande. Please advice. Thank you in advance.
Yes there are, depending on your cruise line there might be a charge. see details at Livorno Italy Cruise Port of Call
In june it might get very busy in Livorno, you might opt for a taxi to beat the crowds.
tip: there are so many (hundreds) tour groups crisscrossing Florence that if you want to know anything about a particular statue/building just listen in (eavesdropping)
