Mountain Nature / Park
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.

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.
