Indeed, this Tuscan city is not the most picturesque, but it has a lot to offer young people! Beaches, bars, nightclubs, a good geographical location and hundreds of plans every year make Livorno attractive to many international students to immerse themselves in Italian culture.
If you choose to live in a shared flat, we recommend that you try to get one of your flatmates to be Italian. In this way, you will be able to take the opportunity to learn and practice the local language daily, being able to communicate fluently at the end of your exchange in the city of Tuscany.
These are some of the pros and cons of living in shared flats in this Italian city:
Do you want your experience in Livorno to be the best possible? Try the Erasmus+ apps, with which you can access a large amount of relevant information for the exchange. Within that information, there may be instructions for different procedures, data on life in the city and tips from students who have been there in previous years. One of these is that you take advantage of the train network in Italy to explore the country as much as you can.
In this section, we tell you about some of the ways you have to get in touch with other international students in the Italian city, both before arriving and upon arrival.
Due to the proximity of Livorno to Pisa, you will be able to join different student associations in this Italian city to meet other young people. Two of them are the ESN Pisa and the AEGEE Pisa, with which you can take part in different activities and come into contact with other students who are in the same situation as you.
The student associations have Facebook groups where you can access the calendar of planned activities, which may include international picnics, theme parties, sports afternoons on the beaches, excursions by bike, and affordable trips to Genoa, among others.
Every year groups are formed on Whatsapp and Telegram for young people to connect spontaneously. This facilitates the possibility of organizing plans on their own and proposing some that they want to do without having to depend on the associations.
