MONTE CAPANNE

Just a stone’s throw from Marciana, the Monte Capanne cable car carries visitors to the island’s highest peak, at 1019 metres. Built in the early 1960s, the cable car system was entirely refurbished in 2005 and the trip to the summit station, at 950 metres above sea level, takes just 18 minutes. There is a view of all the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago and Corsica from the peak. Like the ancient cartographers, from the top one can pick out many of the features and beauties of Elba’s geography with the naked eye. The return trip, accompanied by a pleasant breeze, offers views of the sea beneath and the surrounding landscape. The base station has a bar and restaurant, and at the summit visitors will find a delightful mountain refuge with a stunning view.
