If we keep going along the unpaved road for 15 minutes, we will reach the ancient cisterns and pipes of the Leopoldine aqueduct of Colognole.
The Leopoldine Aqueduct is an monumental architectural masterpiece, commissioned by Ferdinando Il de' Medici in 1794, and completed in 1824 under the Grand Duke of Tuscany Leopoldo. The architect Pasquale Poccianti oversaw the works. The aqueduct, with its total length of 18 km, supplied Livorno with water from 1816 to 1912. The dramatic remains, furrowing the area with some steep arches, are now set in a natural frame of rare beauty. In Colognole, you can admire the best-preserved holm oak forest of the Livorno area.
Once there, just relax and take time to enjoy this beautiful structure, walking along some stretches of it before taking the path to Colognole.
