Departure: Porto Azzurro
Length of route: 21,33 km
Height above sea level: 272 m
Compared to the first stage, the second stage of the GTE is smoother and less challenging.
Once you leave Porto Azzurro you go upwards and head for Botro valley until you get to Capo Galletti then head downwards along the hill towards the Buraccio valley, characterised by olive groves and vineyards, until you get to the Casa Marchetti vineyards.
From here you go upwards once again, surrounded by highly scented bushes of rosemary and broom in the direction of Monte Orello (377 m above sea level), where, leaving the Grande Traversata Elbana for a few hundred metres, you can stop for a break and admire the view of the Stella Gulf and Capoliveri.
Heading downwards from Monte Orello, you cross what was once a field of cork trees and get to the "Fonte agli Schiumoli" spring that was used in the Etruscan period, then you keep going until you get to Colle Reciso, 200 m above sea level, and where you will see a large limestone quarry at the top.
From here you follow the backbone until you get to the Poggio del Molino a Vento (where a junction gets you to the remains of the old mill that stands proud over the gulf of Lacona).
The path continues at the same height above sea level until you reach the point where you start going downwards until the main road, number 25, only a few metres from Procchio.
