Seeing Elba from above
Oct 2018
Cable cars are not my favorite, but in this case I was glad I did. The view from the top is amazing. You can see the island, clouds are passing by, fantastic. It is also possible to hike to the top (and back).

Great ride even with cloud!

Loved this ride to the top of the mountain. Views of Elba were fantastic. The top of the mountain was in cloud but we still had sun up most of it. Good tip is to take a sweater as it does get cooler near the top!

Worth a Trip to Elba JUST For This Ride!
Jun 2019 • Family
We spent a week in Volterra at a villa for a family reunion and made the day-trip to Piombino then ferry to Elba for the day. What a treat, a tourist island with very few souvenir shops and some genuine local culture absent the throngs of tourists encountered in Florence.

In any case, the cable cars were a treat. Expect to spend 62 Euros for a family of four, a reasonable price all things considered. Nice scenic drive getting there from Portofino, took about an hour each way. The cables cars and mountain top will take about 2 hours to experience, and the view is breath-taking. Cafe at top and bottom helps keep things on schedule if you are only making a single day visit to the island.

We were not able to visit the Napoleon museum, had originally hoped to cram both into one day. If you intend to see both, an overnight stay is recommended.

Trek to Elbas summit
May 2019 • Couples
Trek uphill and the cabinovia down. Nice trek up. Fairly trained you do it in under two tours. 4,5 km, 650 m climb. The tour down is 20 minutes. Well on top magnificent views over Elba. And a cafe where you can reload energy an enjoy the views.

The view makes the trip worth it
Apr 2019 • Family
At some points I was holding on for dear life as the wind whipped in our faces and we were 100% underdressed for the excursion but the ride is fun and the views incredible. There is a small bar at the top and you can walk a bit further to see all the way around. Most incredible is how green the island is.

Fun excursion with magnificent views
Sep 2018 • Couples
We had a wonderful experience at Monte Capanne. We took the cable car up to the top of the mountain. We timed arrival for opening - great idea as there was a very short queue and we were at the top of the mountain before midday. We then hiked down. There were some scary points (I’m not a regular hiker) and the climb down is very steep but it was a wonderful experience and I would definitely do it again. The sign posts are scarce so be flexible with timing, but along the way you’ll find some hidden gems like the the ancient church and old stone wall. The views from the top and along the way down the mountain were without a doubt some of the best in Elba!

Beautifully cold

Visited in August , the very tricky to find lift can be very nice on an summer afternoon. Even so , get a jacket on!

Closed from 13:00 -14:20 for some bizard reason , you can enjoy it the rest of the day for the reasonable price of 18€ per person to came and go.
Pets are ok to go! That’s the best part tho- joking

Takes 30 minutes one way, so bring some snacks and sandwiches and camping bed for the trip. 😹

I really enjoy it and the tourist information nearby was very helpful, the village Alta Marciana was lovely and great views . Highly recommended to walk in the morning .

We have been there in the afternoon to visit one of the places where the BarLume was recorded. The panorama is great, the view is amazing, the cabinovia trip is a bit frightening but manageable. A place to see, the view there is extraordinary.

While the yellow cages that transport you upwards and back down on this furnicular may look scary, they are 100% safe and operated by professional crew. We went up with a small baby in a carrier without problems. The views are amazing and the overall experience is simply great!
