    Traveller Tips

    Cycle around Elba

    Porto Azzuro is a perfect place to stay on Elba, and you can get to know the island by biking to secluded beaches. The island is only about 200 sq km so once you have your favourite spots you can get there easily by bike.


    Marble caves

    The marble caves are a must-see.


    Bagni di Lucca

    Lucca is a famous walled tourist town, but when you have had enough of the crowds take a 30 minute trip into the hills to Bagni di Lucca. It is cooler, calmer, greener, and you will find charming accommodation. No big hotels, but a few charming pensioni.


    Puccini's house in Torre del Lago

    For Puccini nuts I recommend a trip to see his house at Torre del Lago Puccini. The house looks out onto the lake which is now very polluted. Puccini left the house eventually because the surroundings had deteriorated. In spite of this the house which is now a museum is well worth a visit


    Stay overnight at Orvieto

    Ovieto is a beautiful town, teeming with tourists during the day. But by night, they've got into the buses and gone. Stay a night or two to enjoy Orvieto without the throngs.
