THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF ELBA

written by Chiara Guzzetti

Ostuni città bianca

Elba has a typical coastal climate, rendered mild by the sea air even in winter. Rainfall is rare on the whole, especially in the summer.

In the Island, there are various opportunities for leisure and cultural enrichment, thanks to historical events, sporting events, concerts and village fairs, during which the old traditions are renewed in order to attract both tourists and locals.
National and international Sailing Regatas find in Elba on ideal competition field (360° winds) and these are organised all year round. During spring Elba's minerals become the stars of "The Earth's Treasures", an important market-fair with exposers from all around the world. For enthusiasts and the merely curious there is the Historic Rally, with classic cars parading on the roads of Elba.

Portoferraio is the capital and main port of the island of Elba; it is one of the oldest towns of the islands.
Following the road that coasts the bay of Portoferraio, we find the Thermal Baths of San Giovanni, an area that covers about five hectares of marine muds rich in iodine and sulphur. Originally this area, where the sea is shallow, was the location of salt marshes. Now it is the seat of a modern and fully equipped spa. Treatments with sodium chloride, bromide and iodide are ideal to cure skin diseases and to rejuvenate it, for arthropathologies and for respiratory diseases.

Portoferraio boasts several beaches, made of pebbles and sand.
The village of Porto Azzurro is a village of fishermen and country workers is a famous sea-side resort. At about 1 kilometer from Porto Azzurro tourists can visit the Miniature Mine, a miniature reconstruction of a mine and of its activities. But there are also other historical and cultural sites, like the Sanctuary of Madonna del Monserrato and the Spanish Church Cuore Immacolato di Maria.
