The path from Porto Vecchio to Punta della Teglia
The path from Porto Vecchio to Punta della Teglia

The best way to discover Capraia is to venture on foot along the centuries-old roads that cross it for an excursion amongst the wild and rocky nature of the island, the only one of the Tuscan Archipelago to be of volcanic origin. In particular, you don’t want to miss the path that runs along the coast of Capraia that allows you to admire spectacular views of the Cala di Porto Vecchio, Monte Capo, Cala della Mortola and Punta della Teglia. This is the only route that allows you to walk to the Torre delle Barbici, dating back to 1699.

Once you arrive at your destination, you can go back to the starting point by going returning along the same path (in total about 5 km each way); or, in the summer season, you can be picked up "by sea" with a taxi boat.
