  • Beautiful day with departure from the port of Marina di Campo at 9:30 on ship Magic Princess. Cabin crew, with a very very prepared. We circumnavigated the island stopping at strategic locations to make several bathrooms. We saw amazing places, beaches and places to treat. I will post some pictures that will give you the idea. Excursion to do without delay and for the modest sum of 35 euros using even a plate of penne with tuna cooked by the staff. Highly recommended.

  • Interesting excursion with the opportunity to see an open-cast mine and try to "tear down" of the stone blocks to extract pyrite. Worth for enthusiasts and it is certainly a very important part of the local history. Talented and motivated the Guide. The forecast is to open new areas of travel and maybe even tunnels. We will try to come back in a few years.

  • The mineral Park is rich in minerals and tells the story of what no longer exists on Elba. The reconstructions of mining environments (e.g. a gallery, the place where the miners ate and rested, the local blacksmith ...) are also interesting because they use original materials. There are also records Napoleon Bonaparte's interest to achieve a testifying to the steel plant ... We didn't go on the train, we were afraid of hot weather, but we'll be back maybe in spring or autumn.

  • A pleasant activity involving both children and adults. After an introduction to the minerals on their merger and other information about how you dig there starts at 10 minutes ' walk away from Rio Marina Museum in Via Magenta. Followed by a "teacher" that tells us how and what to look for, with hammer, we turn to this space in search of gold and other precious minerals 1000 fools that we will be taking home. The cost of the asset is not very low, €10 kids €7 adults, perhaps no high wire, must say that this task remains alive and vivid in the imagination for a long time

  • We have been to Rio Marina mineral Park, with visit on the train at open-pit mining, and Museum. All costs €12 per person without charging the 1 year old daughter (who was in her arms on the train). While traveling in the train there is a recorded voice that explains everything, then you stopped to pick up some minerals. All I liked it although I expected a bit more, especially the equipment you see on tour are positioned as if they were on display, but still interesting!

  • The train ride is inteessante although it does not have a clear idea of the various open-cast mines. The time of collection of minerals is very entertaining though then one wonders what to do with ... The Museum from an idea of the tools used in this work so heavy and well worth a visit

  • Interesting and looked after the Museum with minerals and fossils in addition to reconstructions depicting life in mine:-) Pleasant excursion on the train with a full description of the environments that you cross. Nice also in the mining area for the answer. Particularly appreciated by children but not only!
