Monte Capanne, Marciana

(4.4/5 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.

  • Monte Capanne as the highest peak of the island is a place with breathtaking panoramas. The main starting point from where you can get up the mountain town of Marciana. You can buy the tickets there and go up in cages (watch out for the lunch break). But much more I recommend hiking output also Marciana. The route has a 3 km, elevation 600 m and due to pace you above for 3 hours. The path is signposted enough. The first part leads through the Woods around the former stone terraces, on which you will meet hundreds of lizards. The next part is exposed, and therefore you will find beautiful views. The output you need just enough strong shoes, sandals definitely don't go. The reward for the effort will be a view of the whole island. This trip let's day with stable weather, otherwise there is a risk that the mountain will be in the clouds. You don't have to be so much afraid of the heat, you're 1000 m high and there is a cooler.

  • From the top of the mountain you can enjoy a breathtaking view at 360 degrees across the Elbe, absolutely recommended the climb.

  • We climbed the mountain walk to the ridge from the village of Pomonte. Walk hard enough but the view is worth it all. You can see the sea on three sides, the Italian coast, Corsica and almost all the islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
