Silversea Luxury Cruises - Portoferraio, italy

Elba is the Tuscan archipelago's largest island, but it resembles nearby verdant Corsica more than it does its rocky Italian sisters, thanks to a network of underground springs that keep it lush and green. It's this combination of semitropical vegetation and dramatic mountain scenery—unusual in the Mediterranean—that has made Elba so prized for so long, and the island's uniqueness continues to draw boatloads of visitors throughout the warm months.

A car is very useful for getting around the island, but public buses stop at most towns several times a day; the tourist office has timetables.

Excursions in PORTOFERRAIO (Elba)

Eastern Elba Panorama

Experience the panoramic beauty of Eastern Elba during this picturesque, half-day excursion to Marina di Campo, Capoliveri and Porto Azzurro.


Marina di Campo

Depart the pier with your guide for the scenic, approximate 30-minute drive to Marina di Campo. This old fishing town is highlighted by approximately 1.2 miles (about two kilometres) of pinewood-lined golden beaches, a beautiful promenade along the sea and splendid accommodations, making it among the most popular tourist centres on the island. Following some free time here, re-board your coach for the drive to Capoliveri.


Capoliveri

Perched on a 1,355-foot-high (413-metre-high) hilltop, Capoliveri is adorned with Medieval architecture and town centres boasting a wealth of history and charm. The Capoliveri coasts are among the most beautiful on the island, and feature overhanging cliffs, crystal-clear bays and superb views over the gulfs of Lacona and Campo. During your visit, you can stroll along the narrow, picturesque streets and archways, or 'chiassi', browse the small boutiques, or stop for traditional cuisine and fine wine.


Porto Azzurro

Next, re-board your coach for the drive to Porto Azzurro, one of the most picturesque and relaxing seaside resorts on Elba. Situated along a deep inlet on the eastern side of the island, Porto Azzurro is dominated by the early-17th-century, star-shaped Fort of San Giacomo, or 'Forte Longone', and overlooks a lovely bay. After a visit here and some free time at your leisure, commence the approximate 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (one kilometre), with steep roads to negotiate in Capoliveri. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses from the ship.

Picturesque Elba Island

Experience the spectacular panoramic beauty, flavours and charm of Elba during a picturesque, full-day excursion to this beautiful island.


Portoferraio, West Coast Drive, Elba Island, Marciana Marina, Cotone, Pisan Tower, Free Time

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive towards the western part of Elba Island. Your first stop is at Marciana Marina, a charming little town by the sea, approximately 11.8 miles (about 19 kilometres) from Portoferraio. With her picturesque districts, small, granite streets and pastel-coloured houses lining the seashore, Marciana Marina is one of the smallest council districts in Italy. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour along the extensive shoreline of Cotone, a fishing village with its characteristic old, colourful houses decorating the cliff-faces, en route to the 11th-century Pisan Tower. Following your walking tour, some free time is made available to browse the marina and its boutiques, which offer designer items such as perfume, clothing, jewellery, and accessories.


Hotel Cernia Isola Botanica, Botanical Garden Tour, Offshore Island Views, Lunch

Next, continue on to the Hotel Cernia Isola Botanica, a lovely small, family-run hotel in La Zanca with a beautiful and enchanting Botanical Garden. During a guided tour conducted by the mother of the owner, discover several varieties of local flowers and plants in the garden, which is perched on a cliff opposite the sea and designed to blend in seamlessly with the lush, natural landscape and noise of the waves breaking against the cliffs. Weather-permitting, you can enjoy breath-taking vistas of offshore islands. Following your tour, proceed for lunch at the hotel. A glass wall of the restaurant faces the gorgeous Botanical Garden, in which fresh aromatic vegetables, herbs and spices are grown for the dishes prepared by the chef. The hotel's cellar offers some of the best Italian wines, especially those from Tuscany.


Villages of Chiessi and Pomonte, Panoramic Island Views

After lunch, re-board your coach and drive to Chiessi, a little seaside village that retains its old farming traditions. A photo stop is made at Chiessi before driving on to Pomonte. Nestled at the foot of the mountains, Pomonte offers splendid panoramic vistas of the Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Corsica islands south of Elba, and up to Fetovaia. Located in a narrow gulf, Fetovaia is considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of Elba, and famous for its white-sand beaches.


Marina di Campo, Free Time, Shopping and Exploration

Your last stop is at Marina di Campo, where some free time is made available for shopping and exploring your surrounds. This lovely town offers many shops, boutiques and eateries catering to tourism, and is located on the right side of the largest beach on the island. In the centre of Marina di Campo is the old fishing village with its little port and picturesque, painted houses, and 11th-century Pisan Tower. The town also has a lovely seafront walk, a popular local meeting-place in the evening. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and standing for approximately 547 yards (about 500 metres), at times over uneven, cobblestone, and natural surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, 20 steps at the hotel and stairs at the Botanical Gardens. Walking at Marciana Marina and Marina di Campo is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a sweater or light jacket from the ship. The tour sequence may vary.

Portoferraio

The main town of the island, Portoferraio is home to an old port and modern seafront with lovely hotels. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour through the town en route to the Villa Dei Mulini, former winter residence of French emperor Napoleon Banaparte. Although Napoleon's exile on Elba was brief, he left behind a considerable cultural and historical patrimony.
