Excursion in Monte Capanne

It will be worthy to walk between sky, sea and in the beautiful landscapes of Isle of Giglio, Capraia, Pianosa, Giannutri, Montecristo and Gorgona. Under the sign of conviviality and hospitality, the Isle of Elba offers many walking paths during the whole festival: from beaches to mounts, by walking on ancient paths of carbon-men, passing through sanctuaries, crossing small villages and then having a look at the sea from the above and smelling the flowers perfume. 
Among the many opportunities we mention the following: on Sunday 21 April the “Percorso Filo D’oro” a path on the slopes of Monte Perone suitable for those who suffer from law vision. One kilometre path with hand rail, suitable for all, bringing to a large square with information panels and text in Braille.  
On 2 May there will be a special walk: it is a dogs group walk, each with its owner, along a naturalistic path. There are many initiatives during the festival and many walks along “earth and sea” paths.
