Hiking Mount Capanne
Discover the beauty of the Elba hiking by the slopes of its heights. Leave Portoferraio by motorcoach and set out for an enjoyable drive to the western Elba, reaching the attractive village of Marciana, the island’s oldest settlement (375 mts above sea level), still maintaining its medieval appearance: from here start a delightful hiking tour along the slopes of Mount Capanne which has been slowly eroded by the wind creating curios formations. Walk through a magnificent vegetation surrounded by ilex, pine and chestnut tree woods which also allows breathtaking views over the northern side of the island: the cool and fresh climate gives this land a mountain atmosphere although the sea is just a few minutes away. After approximately 1.5 hour, reach the Church of San Cerbone (525 mts above sea level), built in honor of Saint Cerbone who retired here from Populonia to escape the Longobards persecution during the 6th century. Continue down for about 30 minutes to end the hike at the village of Poggio (325 mts above sea level) and stop at a charming rustic restaurant: a pleasant interlude to relax, enjoy great views over the ocean and taste of course the local specialties before resuming our drive back to Portoferraio and your SeaDream yacht.
