Islands near Elba – They are Capraia, Pianosa and Montecristo. Famous places for beaches and pristine inlets with a fabulous sea. Several boat excursions from Portoferraio and Capoliveri reach Capraia and Pianosa every day. Instead, you need a special permission to visit Montecristo Island.
Hermitages – They are one of the Elba Island secrets. After Roman Empire fall, the coasts of Elba were attacked by pirates again and again. People moved to hinterland, more safe and easy to protect. Hermitages were built on mountains, such as romitorio di San Cerbone, santuario della Madonna del Monte and santuario della Madonna delle Grazie.
