Create an itinerary including Monte Capanne
Ascend the tallest mountain on Elba Island, Monte Capanne, to take in views of mainland Italy and the surrounding islands. Walk up the wooded mountain or take a vertigo-inducing cable car to the 1,019 m (3,343 ft) summit. The cable car consists of small standing-room-only "baskets," while the hiking trail leads through chestnut trees and then requires a scramble over boulders before the top. Plan your Monte Capanne visit and explore what else you can see and do in Marciana using our Marciana trip itinerary maker app.

  • 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...

  • 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.....  more

  • Great views, nice hiking trails all round! Beware the route to the peak from the west requires harness climbing equipment
  • The view from the highste point on Elba is amazing. You can see all the island around and the beautiful island Elba with all his colors
