Elba is a very, very romantic island. Especially if you will choose to spend here the most romantic day of the year. Valentine’s Day 2016 is on Sunday: an unmissable occasion to spend a wonderful weekend with your better half.
First day (February 12)
Once on Elba Island, bring your bags to your hotel or B&B. And rent a car. You will spend the first day of this romantic vacation in Portoferraio. Where the things to see are really several, such as the old town centre and Medici’s fortresses.
Sunset is forthcoming. Get to spiaggia dell’Innamorata (literally, “the beach of the enamored woman”). With a name like that, it could only be the most romantic beach of the island. After the sunset, stroll and dinner in Capoliveri, on the southern coast of Elba.
Second day (February 13)
What better, during a romantic vacation, than a day dedicated solely to relaxation? In Portoferraio there is the spa of San Giovanni. Here you will spend the entire second day enjoying massages and spa treatments.
In the evening, go back to the old town centre of Portoferraio. Where you can enjoy a pleasant candlelight dinner in one of the many, intimate and picturesque restaurants.
Third day (February 14)
It is the last day of this weekend. And it’s Valentine’s Day. The Anello occidentale dell’isola d’Elba is the coastal road from Procchio to Marina di Campo. The journey takes about two hours by car. This road will give you some of the most beautiful views of the island. And two places that you cannot miss are Poggio and Chiessi: you won’t regret the choice.
