Livorno is a busy port on the Tuscan coast and not on the tourist trail. Handily, the city is situated close to Pisa and its airport so if you wish to see a Livorno game you could base yourself there. Pisa itself has an abundance of sights and also has good transport connections to other tourist destinations such as Lucca and Florence.
