Travelling to Elba with my Mum and Dad at the end of May, beginning of June.
Due to the Bus time tables from Florence, we would be on Elba for 4nights.
Ideally like to pick 1 hotel for the 4nights, and do day trips from that base.
Tried to research the best area to stay in Elba, with no luck. Suggestions seem to be;
Marina di Campo/ Porto Azzuro/ Cavoli.
Obviously I need to narrow it down to 1.
They are both 50yrs old, we would like to see all of the 'touristy' things that Elba has to offer, and also a couple of walks, and a beach.
So in short, best AREA to stay in Elba.

We visited a marble shop in Carrara many years ago when we were stationed in Naples, Italy (1990). The shop had a small cafe attached to it - and I remember the owners had a pet monkey that was on a leash which they chained to one of the chairs. Does anyone know what shop this is? If it still exists? Thanks.
I understand there is a bus named Volainbus that shuttles from the airport to the Florence train station every 1/2 hour for 6 euros one way. 1st question, how long is the 10 euro round trip ticket good after you validate it? 2nd question, is there a city bus that takes the same route for less? We went to Florence by train from Rome 2 years ago, so we are not familiar with the airport.
Hi all, first of all I love this site, so helpful, thank you.
I am on a cruise ship (first time) and docking nearish to Florence & Pisa. I am not into organised timed excursions, as I like to amble around and take my time. Is there a way to visit both these places independently of the cruise ship? Bus train etc? Also any recommendations? Thank you in advance x
Greetings dear travellers! Me and the wife are going to Florence (for the first time!) this summer. With so many things to see, eat, and do, I can't help but make a detailed itinerary. We're newlyweds and kind of in a budget trip, so you might notice we're just hitting the panini stands and pasta/pizza to-go shops a lot.
Now I need some advice from seasoned travellers and Italian enthusiasts to know if our plan is possible, especially the museum/gallery trips and walking distances. Also, if you have some "YOU MUST DEFINITELY DO/SEE THIS..." advice, that would be awesome! By the way, we will be coming in by train from Venice and we're off to Cinque Terre after.
Without further ado, here's our 2.5 day Florence itinerary:
Florence (Day 1)
Florence (Day 2)
- Historical food market in Florence
- Tuscan countryside cooking lesson with chef
(arista, pizza, pasta, tiramisu, and gelato)
- 4-course Tuscan lunch with Chianti wine
- Receive a diploma, book and apron
Florence (Day 3)
- Galleria Palatina and Boboli Gardens
Florence (Day 4)
