Guided tour of the historic centre of Portoferraio
Get ready to explore the town of Cosimo I de Medici, on Elba island

Portoferraio is a fortified Renaissance town which overlooks an extraordinary gulf. Its port was described by Oratio Nelson as "one of the most protected seaports in Europe".

The two-hour guided tour will take the visitors to discover the most evocative corners of ancient Cosmopoli: the extraordinary defensive structures and mighty fortified bastions. All around, you will enjoy a backdrop of breathtaking views over the cliffs and the beaches in the northern coast of the island.

The main points of interest of this tour are: the Medici fortresses and Forte Falcone, Napoleon's Villa (Palazzina dei Mulini), the Linguella archaeological area and the Passannante tower.
