Was ihr unternehmen werdet
Get off the beaten path of the typical Tuscany tours and enjoy one exciting experience on the magical paradise island of Elba. Located 1,5 hour away from Pisa, your experience starts in Portoferraio after crossing the sea from Piombino Marittima. Meet with Francesca or one of her team member at your arrival in Portoferraio. From there we will transfer to the western part of the island. This 40' panoramic drive along the north coast of the island is totally part of the experience as your host will take advantage of this time to introduce you to the island and its beauties. Once we arrive in the medieval hilltop town of Marciana we will join the trailhead and start our ascent to the highest peak of the island, the Mount Capanne (1019 meters above sea level). Our hike up goes through a chestnut tree forest and is about 4 kilometers long and 621 meters elevation gain. Our reward is the breathtaking views from the top over the whole Tuscan archipelago and its multiple islands. We will take a break on the top for lunch and eat our packed lunch. Once we are refueled, we will start our descent. The afternoon trail is about 7 kilometers long and overall goes downhill on a levelled trail by the side of the mountain. Amazing views again! Back in Marciana we will transfer to the port of Portoferraio where our experience ends.
