Explore Elba Island’s offerings from seaside to mountains on this walking tour

The Elba Island Walking Tour is the perfect way to explore all that the “Pearl of Tuscany” has to offer. Trek from alpine villages to the pristine beaches lining the Mediterranean and soak up the rich history of the island in classic fishing villages and vibrant towns.

This walking tour of Elba Island starts in Marciana Marina, wherefrom the ferry you’ll be surrounded by the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean. Walking the Marciana & Madonna del Monte Sanctuary takes you to the highest point on the island, where your views of the surrounding villages are panoramic.

Climbing the Monte Capanne ridge gives you a complete view of the eastern coast before you stop in to visit the most important chapel on Elba. Then, a walk through the village of San Piero in Campo leads to ancient stone huts used by shepherds many years past. The beautiful fishing village is bordered by sea and forest, and it’s difficult to choose between the two for afternoon exploration.

Then, your walking tour of Elba Island leads you up to Monte Poro, where you can snap a photo of Monte Capanne and Monte Calamita in the distance. The final leg of the Elba Island Walking walking tour climbs the ridge of Monte Fonza, and after the day’s trek, the cool water of the bay of Marina di Campo awaits you.
