Stay on Elba?

by italia-bound Online Now Dec 29, 2003 at 2:18 PM

I'm taking a biking tour through Tuscany in early June that ends on the island of Elba. I've got 4 days to kill after the tour ends, until I leave from Rome. I've always heard that the Amalfi Coast was beautiful and thought about going down there after the tour, but it looks like a tough trip down there (almost a full day!). Should I just plan on staying in Elba? Are there good shops and restaurants? My alternate plan is to rent a car in Piombino and head back in to Tuscany to catch other sights that I might have missed. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

    I bet 4 days in elba would be great. There are sea excursions to out islands like Monte Cristo. days in Siena would not be too much either.

    Elba is a beautiful place, and you will not get bored there. You can make a boat trip to the Isola del Giglio. I would keep the Amalfi coast for another holiday.
