  • The Forte Falcone was on the itinerary of the trip from the very beginning, and I must admit that the visit did not disappoint. To reach the entrance from the parking area it is necessary to go back through the narrow streets of Portoferraio, until the admission: admission is not hard to find. Tickets are pretty cheap (5 euros) but if you have time I would recommend taking the cumulative and take a day to discover all the attractions of Portoferraio. Well what can I say ... the visit includes a tour of the many circles of walls, placed on different levels: through various steps you will find yourself in several courtyards (arranged in terraces, equipped with benches and tables and adorned with agave, fig trees and other plants), being able to spy on the slits or straight from the top of the walls that surround the perimeter of the Fort : the spectacle of panorama fills and relaxes the mind; Once on top of the last wall seems not enough eyes of sight that you will enjoy! Right on the top there are antique, a little local get undressed because I still being restructured, but still make you feel an air of other times, until reaching the small museum, maybe not too Strong, but with pictures and paintings of the ships as it was originally. Wanting to be of maximum 30-50 minute ride you can do the full tour, but I think it's worth to take some time and enjoy the stunning views of the city and sea, or savor the coolness and tranquility of pine parks that make up different courtyards. There are bathrooms available, little reported, on one of the levels, but I wouldn't know what to pay. Obviously you notice that on some points there is still work (in progress) to do, as certain areas of the gardens still in ruins and uncultivated, or internal restructuring areas clear: However I think the renovation and management of an area so ancient and wide can't be easy nor quick, and I think it's worth appreciating the work that has been done to never drop this wonder in the degradation and silence Instead, making it accessible to the public! I hope that the work will continue, and to review it in a few years even more improved. For us it was a very impressive, with impressive views and beautiful works: in short, one way or another, it comes up with this ride! Recommended!

  • Admission fee € had become a fortress and set at 5. Small town of Portoferraio was like most of the main tourist office. I think, it wouldn't hurt. Small but well kept, because few people can walk at their own pace. Mini Museum and the exhibits, such as the history of the island of Elba. Was quite spectacular, panoramic view of the town and the beautiful ocean view because that is probably the highest in the town where. So hot in the summer and forget a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and bring.
