Easter 2017 in Italy: Elba Island

This year, Easter Sunday is on April 16th, in spring. There is all you may need to enjoy a pleasant 3/4-days journey. And you want to visit Elba Island for the first time or to visit it in a very special season. In both cases, we have three great ideas for you.


1. In 3 days

April 15th, Saturday; April 16th, Sunday; April 17th, Monday. So, you have three days to discover one of the most beautiful Mediterranean islands and don’t miss any of the best places, that will give you the most unforgettable memories of the holiday.

If this is the solution you prefer, we can give you a three-days itinerary:

  • First day: Portoferraio;
  • Second day: Anello occidentale;
  • Third day: Napoleon.


2. The spa

As already said, you have three days for this holiday. What better occasion to sped a holiday dedicated only to relaxation? And what better solution than a spa to restore body and mind? Again, Elba Island has what you need.

And what you need is San Giovanni spa, in Portoferraio, the main town on the island. Some of the main treatments use mud and seaweeds.


3. The hermitages

The third idea to spend Easter 2017 on Elba island is the most special and is recommended for hikers. The island, literally, is dotted with ancient monasteries and hermitages, dating back to the fall of Roman Empire.

Today, these monasteries and hermitages form a great itinerary:

  • Romitorio di San Cerbone;
  • Santuario della Madonna del Monte;
  • Santuario della Madonna delle Grazie;
  • Santuario della Madonna della Neve;
  • Santuario della Madonna del Monserrato;
  • Santuario di Santa Caterina d’Alessandria.


And now that you have the ideas you need, there’s only one thing left to do: book a ferry to Elba Island.
