Tips

  • Kai

    Very nice view of the east of the island, but also beyond Portferraio and as often on the Monte Capanne.
    The fortress is being renovated and the former entrance is now closed (as of summer 2015).
    Also to master with smaller children from 5 years.

    The entrance to the fortress interior is not easy to find. Through a hole in a wall, it goes into it.

    Castello was, as of September 20, unfortunately owed to maybe Covid-19. With a little climbing you can explore the Castello outside.

    Fantastic panoramic view over Elba, beautiful view of Portoferraio. Short but steep detour, approx. 25min ascent. Unfortunately, no access to the castle.

    The castle is still being restored, is closed to visitors (as of September 2018). The ascent and the view are still nice to overwhelming!

    Very nice ruin. Pay attention to the opening hours. The path is worth it, the view is fantastic.

    The Castello has now been completely renovated, please note opening times. But it is definitely worth it to just walk up for the view.
