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.

Portoferraio Guide

The town of Portoferraio is located on the north east coast of the Italian island of Elba, on a headland that closes the gulf towards the north. Portoferraio is one of the island's most ancient towns and can trace its origins back to the Ligurians, the Etruscans and the Greeks, before finally becoming a Roman colony named Fabricia. Cosimo I dei Medici is responsible for the town's layout who began to change it after 1548, when the town's name was changed to Cosmopoli, in order to strengthen the town's defences. Popular attractions in or near the town include the Romanesque Church of Santo Stefano alle Trane, the Villa dei Mulini and Villa San Martino, the Etruscan Fortress of Castiglione, the Pinacoteca Foresiana, the International Art Centre of Italo Bolano and the Botanical Garden at Ottone.

A few kilometers from Portoferraio, towards Bagnaia, in the hamlet of Le Grotte, where visitors can see the remains of a Roman villa from the Imperial period. These were covered by plants and shrubs until 1960 when digging brought to light the great complex with walls in opus reticulatum, big terraces overlooking the sea and a pool with heating and a water circulation system.
