Poggio - Marciana - Elba island
Poggio is a hamlet of the town of Marciana, on Elba Island, located 330 meters above sea level on a buttress of Monte Capanne and overlooking the Ligurian Sea was home to a weather station.
In 1814 Poggio was often frequented by Napoleon Bonaparte during his exile at Elba. The town was visited by the painter Telemaco Signorini who immortalized him in numerous canvases. On the project of architect Adolfo Coppedè, a large villa was built for the on. Pilade Del Buono.
From 1946 Poggio became a place of international holiday; Among the guests were Winston Churchill, Greta Garbo and Giorgio De Chirico.
This hamlet that has preserved its medieval appearance, surrounded by holm oak and chestnut woods. Flowers everywhere, silent broken by some voice that seems to make company to visitors who remain enchanted by the beauty of this corner of Elba.
Not far from the inhabited center is the source of oligomineral water with healing properties called "Napoleon's Source" because it is also appreciated by the Emperor during his stay at Elba.
This water is well-indicated in the treatment of uricemia and calculus and although the official recognition of healing properties occurred in the late 1940s, they had been known for centuries.
Today, although there is a bottling plant, it is still possible to take water freely from a nearby fountain or to dine during the dream of walking through Poggio.
Monte Capanne is the highest mountain on Elba Island and the province of Livorno. Situated in the western part of the island, it reaches 1019 meters above sea level.
It is possible to hike to the Capanne Mountain on foot or with the cable car just outside the town center and offers a fantastic panoramic view over the whole island, the Tuscan coast and Corsica.
The whole area is rich in vineyards that produce great wine.
