  • The museum is much more interesting than the train trip. Better for children than for adults. Rather expensive.  more »
  • We chose to take a day trip to Rio Marina mines as an alternative to the usual Beach, nice also included mining museum and the sacchettata of Hematite stones that my niece to found digging in the mines that they visit.

  • Very disappointed! Website said it was open daily from 9:30-12:30, we arrived at 10:30 and the door was locked, 2 people inside. Knocked on the door, man signalled closed, sign on door indicated it should be open. Tried calling, person answered said she didn't speak English and hung up! When the 2 people inside came out we tried to ask, was told come back tomorrow. The only bad experience we had on Elba island
  • I brought my 3 year old daughter today. First we visited the Museum in the country, very nice, they really really beautiful minerals, then from there they sent us to take the train, the train took us to visit the open-cast mines, then we stopped and we were given a pick with bags to collect minerals, funny ... We have gathered lots of Hematite and pyrite, both for children and adults enjoyed themselves, also the guide very helpful in explaining even for those who do not recognize the minerals. price very honest!!! It is all worth it!!

  • Experience certainly recommended, particularly aboard the "military means" by which you make "safari". With the Middle climbs on journeys of easy/medium difficulty suitable for everyone (even because the medium is well suited to use military backgrounds, ergo more stressful!) You will find the Guide and you will travel most of mine, going from several sites that were and being able to observe the different excavation techniques which have been going for years. Along the way, you can also admire tools and structures of the time. Not to mention the breathtaking views to enjoy! The path stretches along several kilometres of quarry, for a distance of one and a half hour. €18 per person, with children pay half price. Maybe not a little but, in my opinion, it's worth them until the last penny! PS: Beware of the google maps directions: takes you from above the quarry, but the road is not accessible to non-specialists. Not to mention that the route is unpaved! Eye then and select the address of the CONCESSIONAIRE of the mines of ELBA, which is at the Centre of the village!

  • Basically a place for tourists but very interesting history of the place. In addition, provide ice axes and pouches: you can dig where you want and take home the minerals found. The lucky ones go home with large chunks of pyrite.

  • Beautiful experience. Paying the ticket 12 euros you can make the rounds of the mineral Park on a small train, which also offers a spectacular view of the island.
