Over the Porto Mediceo

Porto Mediceo, Medicean Port from above, LivornoIn foreground we can see the “Diga curvilinea” (Curved seawall), built to protect the port from the sea. The “Porto Mediceo” itself is the relatively small basin in the middle, with on its left a barely visible “Fortezza Vecchia” and on the right the blue sheds of the Benetti Shipyard, the large dry dock, the floating dock, the lighthouse and the “Darsena Morosini” (Morosini docks). Beyond that begins the “lungomare”, we have already seen a part of it in Flying over Livorno, while inland lies most of Livorno proper.

This is such an incredible birds eye view of the port. The image is very crisp on its own. :)

Beautiful. It puts everything into perspective, all the places you write about separately.

Excellent shot VP, I love the idea of a 'sea wall' is it very old? Interesting also to see how many big ships that are in port. Such a great image to make bigger and see all the details.

The scythe format of the barrier is a bit creepy, but those aerial views you've posted are breathtaking indeed!
God bless you!
