How to get to Elba Island

Porto Azzurro

ABC ELBA Italian Language School is located in Porto Azzurro that, with its azure coloured harbour, is a very charming village.
It has an elegant promenade and offers pleasant walks and many shopping opportunities with all kinds of shops, restaurants, cafés and gelaterias.
The medieval Spanish fortress dominates the village; a visit to the nearby sanctuary Madonna di Monserrato takes you on an inviting walk through a wild and scenic valley.
Near Porto Azzurro you will find a number of quiet, sandy beaches and beautiful rocky cliff.
