Does anybody know any cheap acommodations near the port? I'm coming to Livorno in the afternoon and then leaving with a ferry early morning the next day.
I know of none personally but whilst you are waiting for any recommendations I suggest you look at www.venere.com (which lists almost all Italian hotels) and www.booking.com Both sites are entirely reliable, with good mapping and rates. Neither will take any money from you as long as you turn up...you pay the hotel as normal...and most hotels offer free cancellation up to 24 or 48 hours in advance (check individual hotel policies).
You could also look at www.hostelworld.com and www.hostelbookers.com Hostelworld lists accomm in central Livorno (not actually hostels, I suspect there are none in Livorno) from 27.25 euro.
