Piombino Guide

The Italian town of Piombino is located in the Province of Livorno in Tuscany. It lies on the border between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ligurian Sea, in front of the island of Elba and on the northern side of Maremma. The town can trace its origins back to when it was an Etruscan Port which then became an important port in the Middle Ages of the Republic of Pisa. A great time to visit is in August when "Agosto con Gusto" is in full swing. It is a significant food and wine fair that celebrates the gastronomy and culinary traditions of Piombino. Other visitor attractions in the town include the Museum of the Citadel and the City where the town's prehistoric, Etruscan and Roman past can be further explored. For the more energetic visitor, there are a number of trekking and bicycle paths along the coastline which lead through Mediterranean scrub towards the modern port of Salivoli.

From the port of Piombino ferries depart direct to the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (Elba Island is just 10km from the coast), as well as to Sardinia and Corsica.


Cavo Guide

The town and port of Cavo is located on the Italian island of Elba, the largest of the island in the Tuscan Archipelago and Italy's third largest, after Sardinia and Sicily. It also forms the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, Europe's largest marine park, along with Giglio, Giannutri and Montecristo. The island is perhaps most famous for harbouring French Emperor Napoleon in 1814 during his exile, although the island's history goes back much further than this. It dates back to prehistory with the Ilvati tribe from Liguria who named the island Ilva and then later inhabited by the Etruscans and then later still by the Romans who liked the island because of its rich deposits of iron ore and its mud baths. The island's archaeological findings, contained in its museums, the impressive fortresses and military buildings such as Castello del Volterraio and the beautiful Napoleonic residences of the 1800's such as Palazzina dei Mulini all bear testament to the island's past.
