The strongest motivation for going up to this imposing fortress is the beautiful scenery of the blue waters around the island of Elba, seen from its towers and walls. Otherwise it is a desolate place screaming of continuous neglect. We have looked for anything that will show some kind of care , but even the signs for going down were placed in some poor places, causing the descend to the town below to feel like going down a strange and intricate maze. The walk path down comprises of stairs, cobble stones stretches, tunnels and concrete passes, and patches of plain dirt. It is a pity that those responsible for this historic site, that could be a major attraction to the town, left it to its present state of decay.

To date, a desolate building, dirty and in ruins; a heritage to be valued.The ancient historic buildings in Portoferraio are abandoned to negligence.

A large fortress with great views over the city and port area. Interesting small museum on Bonaparte, 2nd world war, and the castle/port. Also has a nice bar/cafe at the start of the walk down with good views.

Irregular cobble stones and countless steps will only inspire you more to hike through this amazing fortress complex. Incredible views of the city. Highly recommend.

Spent a few hours at Fort Falcone, the views of the harbour are amazing. Well worth the entrance money alone. It is. quite well preserved and was very quiet when we were there. Entrance fee included admission to 3 other museums
