Monte Capanne, Marciana
(4.6/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • The price of the cable-perhaps destabilizes a little, at first approach ... But the view from up there repays with interest. ... Of course, for those who like closing your eyes and listening to the rustling of the wind and the silence of the forest while you climb into the gondola, then open them and look at the panorama in 360 degrees ...

  • A book for able-bodied people because the ascent and the descent of the gondolas (2 places) without turning off. Anxious refrain!

  • 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.
