Silversea Luxury Cruises To PORTOFERRAIO (Elba)

PORTOFERRAIO (Elba)
PORTOFERRAIO (Elba)

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.

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.
