Autumn on the Island of Elba: The bright sun and the climate that is still mild make this season perfect for trekking and making unbelievable discoveries! The Tuscan Islands Walking Festival is back after a short break of a few months.
Several excursions will be held from September 24th to October 9th when the countryside on the Tuscan islands turns to different tones of yellow, red and orange.
While the Tuscan Islands Walking Festival is on, you won't be short of chances of combining excursions with the tasting of typical, local products in season at the time like mushrooms (on Saturday October 1st - Island of Giglio) and at the same time finding out many interesting and curious facts about the Tuscan islands, like the one and only natural lake in the whole Archipelago (Island of Capraia - October 1st).
The first highlight in the Autumn programme of the Tuscan Islands Walking Festival will be the Volterraio Fortress. In the De Laugier Auditorium in Portoferraio on September 24th you will learn about the history of the Castle and the renovation work that has been carried out, then you will go on a visit to the Pisan Fortress in Marciana where you will be shown the important defense complex of the Fortresses in Elba and in the other Tuscan islands.
