The seven wonders of Elba

The seven wonders of Elba

Seven municipalities for seven wonders of our island: experiences, monuments, landscapes and more for an unforgettable experience.

Portoferraio: memory

Portoferraio's historic monuments and buildings provide the perfect opportunity to understand how important control over the island has been historically. With proper attention, you can trace all the legacies left behind by the various peoples who landed on the island.

Porto Azzurro: the color

Ringing tones, friendliness, magnificent alleys, and that perennial air of celebration that is typically Mediterranean. A tour of the small town of Porto Azzurro is the best remedy for a bad mood. Impossible not to want to stop at every single little store you come across.

Capoliveri: nature

At the center of a splendid panorama, the territory of Capoliveri hides enchanting places all waiting to be discovered! Paths that are lost in the bush or beaches of unaltered beauty. If you are looking for the wildest nature this is a stop you cannot miss.

Rio: the flavor

Keeper of the secrets of Elban cuisine, the land of Rio is a destination for gourmands. Typical dishes such as Sburrita, Stoccafisso alla Riese, Gurguglione and Schiaccia Briaca will offer your vacation the taste of the sea in spring and summer and the fruits of the earth and the forest in autumn and winter. Take it easy or you will want to move to Rio.

Marciana: the adventure

It towers over the whole island! Mount Capanne, in the municipality of Marciana, is the perfect place for those who love trekking and high-altitude hiking; every angle or landscape is the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable souvenir photo.

Marciana Marina: friendship

Have you ever heard of the miraculous properties of Elban wine? If the answer is no, we recommend a visit to the wineries of Marciana Marina and their amazing quality and variety. An opportunity to meditate or share time with your loved ones.

Campo nell'Elba: relaxation

Looking for the light of the long beaches? Do you wish to spend all day on the sand without sacrificing comfort? The Marina di Campo Lido, the island's largest sandy shore, is the most popular beach destination of the summer season. Try it to believe it!
