An old Estruscan town and where the bishop had his seat. It was constantly under attacks by pirates so the bishop's seat was moved to Massa Marittima. After being populated for almost 2000 years the village is now supposedly own by a member of the Medici-family from Florence.

Didn't actually go all the way to the village, but really enjoyed the view of a "town falling off of a cliff". If you're in the area, do drive by. If you're further away, doesn't make sense to drive this way just for a quick look (it's not that amazing).

Napoleon's fortress on the top of the cliff above the old city centre of Portoferraio is definetly worth a visit. The harbour is very boring - rich people showing off their boats and that's pretty much it. During summer the city is very full of tourists from abroad and Italians - many Italians live on the mainland not far from Piombino and have summer houses on the islands. I strongly recommend to make bookings in advance. The ultimate souvenir is of course Acqua dell'Elba. You can buy it at the Acqua dell'Elba store at the harbour (I have to admit that the products are good). Also, check out the Italian movie "Io e Napoleone" filmed in Portoferraio, Piombino, Populonia and Suvereto.

Suvereto is a very small place and the few people that lives there are peasants and hunters. It's a great place, but nothng for young people looking to have fun since there are no places to go... That's why, if you go there, you have to be open to explore the surroundings and other cities in the area. The Suveretanis can drive two hours just to go dancing!
