    In a panoramic position, this corner of Portoferraio, host the Museum area of the city. Behind the two-story exhibition ticket are classic and remains unrecovered in the seas and in the lands surrounding the Elbe. Some pieces are very interesting and even the locations aren't bad, but the number of finds is quite limited. Outside the remains of an ancient Roman villa (small thing) and one of the bastions of the city, not explored inside. Nice walk along the walls with excellent views of the sea and out of Portoferraio. Place that may be fine if you want to occupy an hour while waiting for the ferry to the Mainland, but nothing more.

    Interesting inside but if you do not know the Italian you can't read all the descriptive panels accompanying the exhibits ... a shame! The City Card is a good idea to also visit these museums.
