Along the climb and outside the walls benches to admire the truly unique panorama and possibly catch your breath. So far the positive. Negative: Parking not marked and in fact reduced to toilet in all its corners;no explanatory table and especially brainly closing hours and opening; for the internal visit mandatory reservation. But is it too much to keep on-site a person who at least in the busiest months is available for paid guided tours? Asuunable little effort. Around paths that lead downstream through beautiful woods of oak and cork.
Panorama fantastico consiglio a tutti, dal forte si assiste a un panorama bellissimo con dei colori molto particolari da non perdere. more »Panorama fantastic I recommend to everyone, from the strong you see a beautiful panorama with very special colors not to be missed.
Wonderful must-visit, if you are on Elba. We had a very competent and nice guide, that answered all our questions and knew near everything about the history of the Castello and it's surrounding.
Loved hiking! 😍 😍 😍 ♥
