A minicruise to discover the island of Elba
If the Tuscan Archipelago is one of the greatest wonders of the Italian landscape, there is no doubt that Elba, among the amazing islands that form it, is its main exponent.
The minicruises directed to the island of Elba mainly leave from the two touristic ports of Piombino and Castiglione della Pescaia.
Amongst the available options there are also the “inverse” mini cruises, that leave from several small docks on Elba leading to the other islands of the Archipelago: Pianosa, Giglio, Capraia and Montecristo.
The time allocated to be spent on the land can be spent wondering around the towns’ small alleys or discovering the places of cultural interest.
In Portoferraio the museum of the Napoleonic Residences, Palazzina dei Mulini being his urban house, and Villa San Martino his countryside house, stores décor, antiques and period furniture that tell visitors about the exile of one of the most admired generals and statesmen in history.
The island is well connected to the mainland, tickets can be purchased online on the Traghettionline website so that you can enjoy your fun- and relax-filled holiday. On this website it is possible to find all the routes and timetables for the ferries directed to Elba.
Minicruises to the island of Giglio
Besides Elba, another must-see destination is definitely the island of Giglio. Ferries leaving from Porto Santo Stefano (in the Argentario area) are available every day May through September.
Maregiglio is the only company that also gets to the island of Giannutri, whereas Blu Navy also offers tours to the other islands of the archipelago: Elba , Capraia and Montecristo. The ferries managed by this company also leave from the deck of Castiglione della Pescaia.
