Well run, always felt safe. Spectacular trip up and back. The scenery up the top was pretty good too. Good value considering...

Its not so obvious but there are several carparks in the town of Marciano itself as their carpark is small and fills fast.

Easy walk of about 600m and the town is pretty. V. Good place for lunch just next to the old castle ruins called Monlili.

This was an amazing experience. To go from sea level to so high a place and to see the whole island below was incredible. We chose a clear, calm day to go and it was at its best. I was a bit nervous of cages to start with, but glad I overcame it quickly as they were a peaceful way to travel.

Going up the mountain in a cable cage is great adventure like a scene taking form the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. The view is beautiful and u can c a lot of the bay . u can go up one way by cable and go down by foot 4 km 2 hr walk
prices for Oct 2016 round trip 18 euro
one way 11 euro
if u take one way and change your mind u can by a tick down for 6 euro

When its fogy top of the mountain coverd by cloud u can not c the view from the top but it nice trip

This is the most exciting thing to do on Elba Island. A couple in our group are scared to death of heights, but after seeing the lift in person, decided to do it and never regretted the decision. Spectacular views of the island from atop Mt Capanne. Do the Cafe as well. Great cappuccino and the cheapest I purchased while in italy!!
