Portoferraio, Elba Island

Portoferraio ©
Portoferraio is a town and comune in the province of Livorno, on the edge of the eponymous harbour of the island of Elba. You'll get in some beach time at Procchio Beach and Spiaggia Di Sottobomba. Get out of town with these interesting Portoferraio side-trips: Spiaggia di Cotoncello (in Marciana) and Spiaggia di Cavoli (in Seccheto). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia Di Sansone and enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia Della Biodola.

Plan my Portoferraio trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Pittsburgh, USA to Portoferraio is an approximately 20-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Pittsburgh to Portoferraio. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Portoferraio when traveling from Pittsburgh in April, with lows around 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel to Siena.
