Book Your Ferry To/From Portoferraio

Portoferraio is a beautiful town of the island of Elba and its largest city. Built upon a lovely hill by Cosimo I de'' Medici in 1548, you can see on three sides the sea. The ancient Cosmopoli (aka "Cosimo''s City") had three forts (Forte Stella, Forte Falcone and Forte Inglese) and a strong line of walls still in place nowadays. 

The 1802 Treaty of Amiens put the town under France’s ruling. In 1814 Napoleon Bonaparte spent here his first exile. In the 19th century, the town accelerate her growing massively and quickly, thanks to the exploitation of iron mines in Rio Marina. Portoferraio then became the main shipping port of iron towards Italy. It is easy to get why Its current name means "Iron Port" in Italian. With the decline and the closure of the “iron business” Portoferraio got back to be an hit for international summer holidays and now it is a treasure of beautiful beaches and cliffs to explore.
