More About Cavo

Cavo, a town on Elba, is closest to the mainland, accessible in just 15 minutes by hydrofoil, and with a small port, several restaurants and other services. The lovely seafront road takes you to the Cape Castello promontory, where there are the remains of a Roman villa.

Cavo was one of the first urban area of Elba and was first inhabited by Etruscans. The village was later inhabited by the Romans who built a Patrician villa in Capo Castello. Cavo was destroyed by barbarians during the first millennium AD.

Elba is a proletarian resort, visited mainly by middle-class Italian families and German tourists, who together fill just about every available inch of hotel and camping space in August and September. What Elba lacks in the glamour department, it makes up for in variety. So while it has a tall mountainous interior speckled with ancient mining villages, the sea is never far away. Coastal fishing and port towns in soft pastels are interspersed with modest sandy beaches.

Cavo Beach and Ferry Port

The village of Cavo is situated on the east coast of Elba and is surrounded by a green pinewood and a lush maquis. Its history goes back thousands of years.

Two important historical events took place in Cavo. In 1376 Pope Gregory XI landed on the island of Elba. The Pope, who had been persuaded by Santa Caterina da Siena, was returning from Avignon and going to Rome in order to move the Papal See to Italy again. That was the first and last time a pontiff set foot on this island. It was the 16 th November and the Pope was sailing with a considerable fleet including his court. There was a very rough sea so, when the fleet arrived near Capo Vite, it met with difficulties and could not continue the journey. Some ships sank opposite the bay of Cavo. The Pope took refuge in Porto Azzurro and the day after, after celebrating mass in the church of San Michele in the vicinity of Capoliviere, he continued sailing.

The other historical event took place on the 2 nd September 1849 when Giuseppe Garibaldi landed at Cavo as he was escaping from the Roman Republic. He ate and drank in Cavo and sailed after a few hours.

During the last century Cavo became an important place of tourist attractiveness. Thanks to its mild and fresh weather, to the residence of Tonietti's family, owner of Elba's mines, important figures visited the village and regularly ate in Pierolli's trattoria. They were Simenon, a famous detective novel writer and creator of the police inspector Maigret, the futurist Marinetti, Marchesi, the musician Pietri, the sculptor Rossellini, the painters Vesna and Pietro Anigoni, the architect Coppedè. In Cavo Coppedè erected the well-known funeral monument to Tonietti's family. The Chapel stands on the pinewood of Capo Vite and it is clearly visible during the course Piombino-Portoferraio.

Getting To Cavo Island

The easiest way to get to the island is by ferry from Piombino to Portoferraio, Elba's capital. In August and throughout the high season, it's best to reserve, especially if you're taking a car over. There are two major ferry companies, Toremar in Piombino and Moby Lines, also known as NAV.AR.MA. Both run regular ferries that take about an hour.

Toremar also offers slightly faster (40 min.) but almost twice as expensive hydrofoils (aliscafo) on which you can't take a car. Toremar has the most ferry runs daily, especially off season, with hourly runs April through August and six to eight daily in winter. Year-round, there are three or four hydrofoils daily to Cavo, on Elba's northeast coast, plus three to four direct to Portoferraio in summer only. You can compare both companies' schedules quickly and easily using the price check facility above.

Toremar also runs boats to Elba's other ports (Cavo, Rio Marina, and Porto Azzuro) as well as a longer-haul ferry from Livorno to Elba once daily (plus an extra Sat run) from May 24 to September 14 that calls on Capraia (and sometimes also Gorgonza) along the way. Toremar in Livorno is at the Porto Mediceo.
