Monte Capanne, Marciana

4.6
#1 of 8 in Nature in Province of Livorno
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.

  • Very nice and fairly easy mountain walk up to Monte Capanne. Start at the cable car on route 1. If you are used to Alpine mountain walking, the trip takes about 1.5-2 hours. You will see beautiful nature and great views throughout the walk. It is very empty as 99.9% of people take the cable car. The top of Monte Capanne is very busy and completely built up with telecom and TV antennas. Hence, enjoy your walk up.
  • Fantastic view from the top. You can arrive at the summit by the Cabinovia Monte Capanne.
  • Too foggy season round my mom yeet beets n meats within my mother's sexual reproductive organ known as the vagina or, woman scrotum
  • love it! love this little island!
  • Great! Unforgettable experience seems to be on top of the world. The cable car is open so not suitable for those who suffer from Vertigo
