Modern impressions of Napoleon's battles - this is a depiction of the battle of Waterloo. To be seen in the Demidoff Gallery of the Villa S. Martino.
We drove up into the hills of Elba to the village of Poggio. Picture of the very robust local church.
There are a lot of beaches . I think the best is the beach of Portoferraio named "Le ghiaie" but i give you my personal list :
- Le ghiaie
- Marina di Campo
This is a small town and the best was to explore it is to walk. There are not many streets, but some of them are quite narrow. Very interesting! It's also nice to walk along the beaches.
well, in Elba people produce small quantities of good wine.. you should go to some peasants around and buy some bottles..
it would be nice to have a house in Elba.. well elba is just like Florianopolis in Brasil, i love both of them
this beach has great clear waters, but i was there on august15th, a public holiday, so it was crowded hahah
Where you are leaving Elba island don't forget to take a picture of Portoferraio, especially of its little old part situated on the top of a little hill.
Cavoli beach is another sandy beach close to Seccheto and Fetovaia. Cavoli is not so big but you can rent a boat there to visit the nearest places.
Just in front of the beach of Fetovaia there is a little harbour where tourists can leave their boats. I think that the price for leaving boats there is very high!
