Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Pisa

​Depart on your scheduled flight to Pisa. Transfer to Piombino from where you'll take the ferry to Elba. Then it's just a short journey to your hotel on the edge of the beautiful village of Marciana Marina.

Day 2 Marina di Campo & Villa San Martino

Join our included tour of the island. Our first stop is the tiny village of Chiessi, before you journey along the picturesque south coast to the colourful harbour and white-sand bay of Marina di Campo. Take in the scenery as you travel inland to Villa San Martino – Napoleon's summer house, then visit the perfume laboratory of Acqua dell'Elba, a company inspired by the discovery of a perfume bottle found on a shipwreck from the 2nd century. Here, fragances are created using plants from the island, and you can sample or buy a range of perfumes and aftershaves whilst visiting. In the evening we'll gather around the pool for a special barbecue.

 

Day 3 Marciana Marina - at Leisure

Today is free for you to spend as you wish. Alternatively, you can take an optional excursion to Portoferraio. This trip includes a visit to Napoleon's winter villa, Villa dei Mulini. It was from here that the exiled French emperor made plans to once again conquer Europe. Later, we visit a local artisan brewery which produces a craft beer with an intense and traditional taste. Take the chance to sample a variety of different tasting brews.


 

Day 4 Marciana Marina - at Leisure

​After breakfast you may choose to join an optional half-day walk through Elba's stunning scenery. Highlights include the ancient mountain hamlet of Poggio, San Cerbone Chapel, the Pisan fortress and the 11th century Sanctuary of the Madonna del Monte. This lovely walk ends with a gentle descent to the village of Marciana Alta. Spend the rest of the day at leisure at your hotel.​

Day 5 Eastern Elba

​There's more of Elba to discover today during our included half-day tour of the east of the island. You'll explore the remote Roman mining town of Capoliveri then continue on to the resort of Porto Azzuro. ​

Day 6 Winery & typical lunch

Today, you can take it easy at your own pace or join our optional excursion to the 18th century vineyard at La Chiusa. You'll get the chance to taste up to four different wines, all made from grapes grown on the vineyard. From a flowery, flavoursome white, to an intense ruby red, there's a wine to suit all palettes. In the evening, why not  relax by the sea and sample the cuisine at a seaside restaurant.

 



Day 7 Marciana Marina - at Leisure

​Today has been left free for you to spend at leisure. You could choose to admire Elba's beauty from the sea with a two-hour cruise on board 'The Nautilus', a glass-bottomed vessel that will introduce you to the underwater wonders of the Mediterranean. You may even see an amazing shipwrecked boat from the 1970s.

Day 8 Pisa/UK

​Your holiday comes to an end today as you transfer to Pisa for your flight home.​

Travelsphere have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the hotel images provided on this website and images of room types displayed may vary to those offered on your tour.

Optional Excursions

Experience even more of your destination by adding one or more optional excursions to your holiday before you set off. Right now is the perfect opportunity to do that – with everything booked and paid for you’ll have even more to get excited about and all you’ll need to think about while you’re away is having a great time.

By the way - look out for ‘Optional Excursion Packages’. For some holidays we’ve grouped a selection of excursions into a package which means you can make a saving when you book in advance.

Prices shown may vary according to departure date and are subject to change.  The full range of excursions will be detailed in your holiday information pack, sent approximately 15 weeks prior to departure.

Italy - Legend, Mystery and Intrigue

FROM £30

Discover the hidden Elba, with our local walking guide, along historic and panoramic woodland pathways.
After a 10 min bus ride to Poggio, our guide will introduce you to this remarkable hamlet before a 40 minute gradual but constant uphill rise through beautiful woodlands (4km approx.). Following a short rest at the ancient chapel of San Cerbone, we continue on (2km approx.) up to the top of the sanctuary of the ‘Madonna dell Monte’ (moderate to Strenuous).
Time to explore Marciana, perhaps an ice-cream or a cold beer before catching the bus back to the Hotel. Don’t forget your walking boots, walking poles not necessary but can be very useful.

ADD TO TOUR AT CHECKOUT

Italy - Napoleons Winter Villa and wine tasting

On arrival you will get to taste up to 4 different wines, all very superior and occasionally the grappa gets tasted too, this is set with a back drop of the sea and the old port and historical centre of Portoferraio in view.
