Elba book festival 2017

For you, the perfect holiday must have an extra touch of culture that can make it really special. The destination you have chosen is Elba Island? If you are planning a journey in July, the 2017 edition of Elba book festival, July 18-21 in Rio nell’Elba, is the event for you.


The books

The protagonists will be the books. But not only. Because the four days of the Elba book festival 2017 will be a complete cultural event: meetings, concerts and presentations. Without forgetting the true “core” of the event: promote small publishing companies.

During Elba book festival 2017, the second edition of the “Lorenzo Claris Appiani per la traduzione letteraria” award will also take place. Established by the Appiani family, the award aims to emphasize the figure of the translator.


The holiday

Rio nell’Elba is a small town located in the eastern part of Elba Island. From here, by car or public transport, you can easily and quickly reach:

  • Portoferraio, the main town on the island, a place that combines breathtaking nature and ancient history;
  • Porto Azzurro, famous especially (but not only) for its beaches;
  • Capoliveri, the second town of the island, and even here the things to see are several.


How to get there

Rio Marina, on the eastern coast of the island, is one of the most important ports for ferries to Elba Island. From here, to get to Rio in Elba, you only need to take the county road 26 and follow the road signs.

The journey by car takes about ten minutes, by foot about 45 minutes.
