Livorno, its canals and the largest bridge in Europe

Good morning, afternoon, evening,

can you see from the photographs what we are referring to?

We are going to visit the place and the surrounding area with English students on Monday the 8th of June, getting together at 3,00 p.m. with the first group and 4,30 with the second one in Piazza del Municipio, just under the board showing directions for New York, London, Madrid, and quite nearer cities in Tuscany.  

It would be a pleasure meeting you too, in case you like to join us, to practice English and welcome whoever does the same. Please be punctual. 

While we are going to give you the booklet from which we took the last photograph below and information to consult for answering these questions, here they are for you to reply.
