Videos from Past Mermaid Week:

Interesting Facts About Elba

Elba, a charming island in the Mediterranean, is located just about ten kilometers from the Italian mainland. It attracts visitors with diverse interests: while some see the island as an ideal holiday destination with its picturesque beaches and sparkling sea, others are fascinated by Elba’s rich culture, including churches, fortresses, and museums. Moreover, Elba offers a variety of activities – whether it’s cycling, e-bike tours, boat trips, diving, or hiking, there’s something for everyone. To reach Elba, you take the ferry from Piombino Marittima, a location easily accessible by car, train, or bus. The crossing to Portoferraio takes just over an hour.
