Elba Island in winter offers several beautiful events. Such as, and there would be no need to say it, the Carnival, the funniest day of the year. If you are looking for an idea for a short trip, we can recommend this: the Carnival 2017 in Porto Azzurro.
The Porto Azzurro Carnival is an event for everyone, young and adult. The real heart of the event is the parade of floats and masks that will take place along the waterfront. In addition, there will be lots of music and the possibility to taste the food and wine specialties.
- Porto Azzurro is famous for its wonderful beaches, such as Barbarossa (easy to reach) or Terranera. In winter, all these places will give you the unforgettable views.
- Moreover, Porto Azzurro could be a good “starting point” to spend a couple of days on Elba Island.
