Easter 2018 what to do

What to do on the occasion of Easter 2018 is your problem. Because, having a few days at your disposal, you need some good ideas on how to use them. How about organizing a trip to the island of Elba? Which, in three days, will allow you to discover some of its most beautiful places.

Here’s the itinerary.


First day: Portoferraio

The first day you will spend it in the main town of the island as well as one of the most important places where ferries for Elba dock. The things to see in Portoferraio would be really many but you have to make sure that in 24 hours you can at least discover the most significant places. Which are these:

  • Historic centre;
  • Napoleon’s house;
  • Medici’s fortresses;
  • Roman Villas;
  • Beach of gravel;
  • Padulella Beach.

Yes, between the stages of the itinerary there will be beaches, beautiful to see even in the spring.


Second day: Capoliveri

The next day, twenty minutes by car and you will reach the second town, for size and importance, of the island. What to see in Capoliveri in a day? Here are 4 ideas:

  • Forte Focardo;
  • Sanctuary of Madonna delle Grazie;
  • San Michele’s apse;
  • Mount Calamita.

Monte Calamita is recommended especially for trekking enthusiasts and nature excursions. However, not all the trails are challenging and will allow you to take pleasant walks.


Third day: Porto Azzurro

On the last day of the trip you will spend it on the east coast of the island. And here are the things to see in Porto Azzurro:

  • Piazza Matteotti;
  • Forte Longone;
  • Carmignani Walk;
  • Barbarossa Beach;
  • Forte Focardo;
  • Pino di Monserrato.

From Porto Azzurro, it takes about twenty minutes by car to reach Porto Azzurro and, from here, embark on the ferry that will take you back to Piombino.


Finally, two last tips to better organize this holiday on the occasion of Easter 2018 on Elba:

  • Board a car on the ferry so that you can move in total freedom;
  • Choose three different hotels, one for each of the three stages: in this way, in the evening, after having visited the locality of turn, you can rest and get back in the car the next day to go to the next destination.
