You have two days for your holiday. You have chosen the destination but not the itinerary. To enjoy your weekend on Elba Island, there are four ideas that will allow you to organize this two-days holiday.


1. Portoferraio and Capoliveri

They are two of Elba Island main towns. During a weekend, you could see Portoferraio on the first day and Capoliveri on the second day. If this is your choice, here you have two useful itineraries:
