Situated in the west of Elba Island, Marciana is a divine corner of Italy that never fails to sweep out-of-town visitors off their feet.
Irresistibly charming and astonishingly attractive, this Tuscany town is propped up along the slopes of Mount Capanne - which happens to be the island's highest mountain. The position of the town means that scenic views are all around, from the rustic woodland that enshrouds the historic architecture, to the bobbing blue sea that glistens away in the distance.
Scooters are available for rental - allowing you to travel up to the top of Mount Capanne by terrain - or there is the option to hop aboard a cable car, which slowly takes you to the summit by drifting through the sky.
The Church of Santa Caterina offers a nice slice of history for anyone wanting to truly immerse themselves in the culture of the location, along with the fascinating Santuario della Madonna del Monte sanctuary - a place where Napoleon himself temporarily stayed during his visit to Elba Island. Boasting some beautiful scenery, terrific cuisine, and a batch of friendly locals, Marciana has a little something for everybody.
