Cavo Guide

Located on the Italian island of Elba, Cavo is a town and port that lies on the island's Mediterranean Sea coast. Elba is the largest of the Tuscan Archipelago islands and forms a part of the Archipelago Toscano National Park. Elba is also the third largest Italian island after Sicily and Sardinia.

The island is renowned for its crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and its wonderful landscape on both land and sea. The island is definitely a must see destination for any visitors to Tuscany. For visitors who want to do more than relax on one of the island's beaches, then the island is the perfect destination for scuba diving or snorkelling thanks to its rich waters teeming with many species of fish. For visitors that prefer to stay on dry land then a hike or a mountain bike ride up into the mountains may be in order, or alternatively a sedate round of golf.

The island is connected to the Italian mainland on routes between Piombino and Portoferraio, the capital located in the north, and Cavo, Rio marina and Porto Azzurro, on the east coast of the island.

Piombino's 'Little Paris' district, named in reference to the rule of Elisa Bonaparte, contains a number of historic buildings that serve to remind visitors of the city's importance during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. These include the Rivellino, the Palazzo Nuovo, and the 16th century castle built by Cesare Borgia to defend the city.
