Cargo Port

Cargo port, LivornoThe tiny shape of the “Fortezza Vecchia”, that was on the left in Over the Porto Mediceo, is now on the extreme right, grouped with the Fish Market building and the “Palazzo del Portuale” around the Old Harbor. Most of the buildings we can see on the top part of the photo belong to the Venice quarter, while the rest is an area of the usually unseen cargo port. The cruise ship is berthed to the relatively new “Molo Italia”, while in foreground we have the “Darsena Petroli” (Oil Tankers Dock).Cargo port, LivornoA wider view of the cargo area of the port with the “Darsena Toscana” on the right. The narrow body of water crossed by a road bridge in the lower part of the picture is the “Canale dei Navicelli”. In the upper part of the picture we can see the Industrial Canal and a basin with some quite busy berthings that still go by the colonial names of Tripoli, Assab, Gondar, Addis Abeba, Neghelli and Bengasi.

Which airline did you use?
They have much cleaner windows than "Norwegian"!!
Just like other comments here, I have to say that it looks like a very big area, your port.
