Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web
Ascend the tallest mountain on Elba Island, Monte Capanne, to take in views of mainland Italy and the surrounding islands. Walk up the wooded mountain or take a vertigo-inducing cable car to the 1,019 m (3,343 ft) summit. The cable car consists of small standing-room-only "baskets," while the hiking trail leads through chestnut trees and then requires a scramble over boulders before the top. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Marciana holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Monte Capanne and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Ski lift (gondola) built in the early 60, completely renewed in 2005, from Marciana to the Summit of Mount Capanne (1019 m) open cabins for two persons, the view is simply wonderful and during the climb to the top, from where you can admire elba in its splendor, the only advice go there on a sunny day and possibly with little to no wind (on top of Mount Capanne is almost always present) to enjoy the spectacle of top shooting great photos I remember. Recommended.

  • We start from Marciana and we walk the path number 1. Flat for a while, after San Cerbone one begins to gain altitude in a sustained manner. In good weather there is the profile of the island without forming the Summit ... the proximity of the peak is home to some unusual details with wild mountain lovers: the arrival of the gondola, a bar from fairly priced, a landing strip for helicopters and a number of bulky repeaters. Upon return we opt for the trail 6 that turns out to be a nice balcony on road Pavement before becoming. Excursion to be programmed according to the weather.

  • Great experience, great view, remember and want to come back.
  • Is simply being on Elba. The ride with the lift for € 18 worth. Views of the Monte Capanne is phenomenal, with good visible to correct looking. The views of large parts of the island's great... From the lift up to the Summit, it is only a short climb of which easily for all possible is.
