Elba in 7 days

What to do in Elba in a whole week?

Summer is synonymous with vacation. And also sea, sun, beaches, parks, places to see, sports, things to do. Here is a basic itinerary for spending a week on the island of Elba.

Day One

The advice is to start your week on the island of Elba from Portoferraio. The first part you will devote entirely to relaxing on the Ghiaie beach, one of the most beautiful the island can offer its visitors. The afternoon, on the other hand, you will spend visiting the Medici fortresses.

Day Two

One always stays in the main town on the island of Elba. That of Cala dei Frati is an uncrowded but wonderful beach, so it is ideal for a few hours of healthy and total relaxation. The second part of the day will be devoted to visiting the historic center of Portoferraio, probably the most fascinating part of the entire town.

Day Three

Still in Portoferraio, where you absolutely must see the beach of Sansone. Moreover, it was in this town that Napoleon lived during his exile.Portoferraio becomes an excellent starting point to retrace the footsteps of the first French emperor.

Day Four

Fun must have its share during a week on Elba. The advice is to spend the fourth day at one of Elba's playgrounds-there are several for all tastes and ages.

Day Five

The Rio Marina mining park awaits you. This is a series of open-pit mines that open into a large area of the island. Over ninety different species of crystals can be seen in the attached museum.

Day Six

Porto Azzurro, another of Elba's most famous resorts, lies on the island's east coast. In one day, there is enough time to see its most beautiful places, such as Matteotti Square, Forte Longone and Barbarossa Beach.

Day Seven

The so-called Western Ring of Elba Island is the coastal road from Procchio to Marina di Campo. Although calling it simply a "road" is reductive: in about forty kilometers, all along provincial road 25, you will be able to admire some of the most beautiful views that the island of Elba can offer its visitors.
