Island of Elba

Portoferraio and surroundings

Portoferraio is the main port of the Island of Elba, but not only! Capital since the time of Napoleon Bonaparte, founded in 1548 by Cosimo de Medici, it has preserved natural and cultural treasures for centuries. We highly recommend for your stay in Portoferraio and surroundings (you can get there easily by bike, scooter & car) the following highlights:

  • old town of Portoferraio: Forte Falcone, Teatro dei Vigilanti, Villa dei Mulini, Chiesetta della Misericordia and Forte Stella;
  • promenade and port of Portoferraio (our office is located at the harbour opposite pier 6);
  • the white pebble beaches of Portoferraio nearby the crystal clear such as: Ghiaie, Capobianco, Seccione, Sansone.

The west coast

We strongly advise you to visit the western coast of the Island of Elba with our vehicles. A breathtaking panorama awaits you on the coastal road from Procchio to Marciana Marina. During the journey you will be able to see Corsica, Pianosa, Montecristo and the Island of Giglio. By car it will take your about two hours to travel the western ring (+/- 60 km). Allow 3 more hours for the stops (not considering the cable car to the top of our Monte Capanne).

It will be an unforgettable experience with incredible landscapes to admire. Here are the most important places you should not miss:

  • Isolina della Paolina (shortly after Procchio);
  • Marciana Marina;
  • Marciana Alta and Poggio;
  • Monte Capanne (if the day is clear go up by cable car);
  • Sant’Andrea;
  • Chiessi;
  • Fetovaia;
  • Seccheto;
  • Cavoli;
  • Marina di Campo (our office is next to the Camping Ville degli Ulivi).
