A lovely, peaceful location with great views over the bay. Make sure you check the opening times as the sanctuary was closed for lunch whilst I was there. The grotto and toilets were still open.

On a hill overlooking the sea the Sanctuary of Montenero is both religious and historic If visiting Livorno try to include the Sanctuary - it's stunning

It's about 400m up a slight incline. In the square there are a couple of restaurants.
