  • Who said that Elba is only sea? The castle is still under renovation but the view is spectacular. We went on at sunset, the trail is usually done in half an hour 40 minutes and is accessible to people of all ages trained or not. The car you leave in a small parking lot shortly reported and it begins to rise, already down the road you can start to enjoy the scenery, you arrive at the top but you can relax and enjoy the view while sitting.

  • You leave the car in a small parking lot below the fortress and climb on foot for a 30/40 minute (depends if you stop to take pictures or to catch my breath). The view from the top is beautiful and hard work pays off! The Castle has been recently renovated and can be visited only with a guide, so you have to book the visit a few days before if you want to get inside (though the view is the same whether you come or not in the Castle). A guided tour with the addition of van for transporting up to below the castle is €20.

  • With beautiful views. Unfortunately the castle was closed, but could hardly walk around. A must. New paths and steps of wooden beams.

  • Place with breathtaking views!!! It dominates the town of portoferraio. Well worth the view

  • The point is very scenic, ideal for sunset pictures. To April 2017 was closed for renovation. Should be back open for summer 2017

  • The Castle revives the stories lived. The restoration has consolidated the structure, leaving intact the old stones. The view makes you lose your breath wherever one turns. Just wish you could get inside once a week.

  • A great trail, a sumptuous finish, a great one. Medium difficulty.
