I loved the art of painting in Livorno city from Fattori to Modigliani and I have seen also a show of their paintings in London, so what is better to look at theirpaintings in the city where they were born???

While the palazzo is pretty there is no guidance offered and it's obvious that they need more money. If you just pass the palazzo it seems closed, you only notice that it's open of you insist and walk to the backside.who thought of not even giving this indication l?
Anyway, the actual exhibition is great. Fattori is omnipresent on Livorno, this museum isn't half bad.

This is a wonderful museum with incredible features including World class paintings and the staircase and ceilings have to be seen to be believed. All the staff were very friendly and I highly recommend you pay the 2.5 euro for the audio guide which really brings this incredible house alive.
The gardens are also nice and would be a good place to have a picnic.
Make sure you check on the opening times as they close for lunch but this is a MUST SEE venue when you visit Livorno and truly is the Jewel in crown.

This fabulous building houses a wonderful collection of Italian impressionist artworks. The building itself is a marvel inside with exquisite venetian glass chandeliers. Many of the works capture life in the 19thc countryside depicting peasants, war, farms and fine portraits. If your travels will take your near Livorno it is definitely worth a visit.

This museum is located in a quiet residential street 5 minutes walk from the Grand Palazzo Hotel.
The ground floor rooms are beautifully decorated. The ceilings are stunning.
Upstairs you will find the most amazing art work. Some of the work is breath-taking.
The staircase is one of the most interesting I've ever seen.
We found the staff helpful particularly the guy upstairs who explained a little about the art work. (Unfortunately we did not have sufficient time to take advantage of the audio guide).
The parkland next to the museum is also worth a look. It is a quiet oasis, lovely to sit, relax and listen to the birds singing.
Next to the museum, there's a small fountain where there are some terapins. It's nothing special to look at but we found it cute.
I'd recommend a visit to this museum, you won't be disappointed.
