My holiday in Elba

If you can only spare a couple of days on the Island of Elba, you'll have to make the most of the little time you have: there are so many things to do and places to go that even a whole month wouldn't be long enough to get to know it fully!

Unfortunately, the chores of everyday life and work often leave us very little time to spend on ourselves... this is why a detailed programme and our useful suggestions will prove invaluable even if only for a taste of the most beautiful places and beaches on the island.

Going to the Island of Elba for a day or for three days means putting yourself completely in the hands of Infoelba and following your heart: the moment you see the first views, the golden sands and crystal clear sea, you won't be able to resist going to see the rest of the island.

We are providing you with a detailed programme of what to go and see in one or more days, by car or by motorbike, including times and routes, so that, when it's time to leave the island, you will at least be able to say you've seen the most beautiful and important places.

We are absolutely certain that if you look back at Elba from the ferry as the sun sets, you will make it promise: that one day you will go back to this island that has made all of your wishes come true.
