Nice promenade with a good atmosphere

Porto Azzurro is very picturesque, with its small houses in pastel colours that frame the harbour. There are some restaurants and cafes in the harbour and in the town's narrow streets. You'll find several shops in the town and even large supermarkets. Ferries arrive in Porto Azzurro from the mainland but the connections are not as good as from Portoferraio.

Sights in Porto Azzurro

An attraction that is well worth a visit is 'Forte di Longone' built in 1603, which today operates as a prison. The fort is situated high above town and can be reached by foot from the town. It is regrettable that visitors are not permitted inside the fort since it houses one of Elba's most beautiful churches.

If you like churches, then also vist the Chapel Madonna del Monserrato built in 1606. From Porto Azzuro take the road to Rio nell'Elba and you will find the Chapel Madonna. Due to its strange location, you need to walk the remaining stretch to arrive at the Chapel. The building is only open for special occasions though including 8th September which is the chapel's celebration.
