What to see in Porto Azzurro
Viewpoints, walks and attractions in Porto Azzurro.
Piazza Matteotti, the most beautiful square on the Island of Elba and among the most beautiful in Italy, is famous as a meeting point for romantic walks and shopping. Numerous events take place in the square during the summer and beyond, including historical, gastronomic, cultural and entertainment events.
The square and the promenade have been completely redeveloped in recent years, the two large fountains with water features and the luxurious canopies adorned with climbing plants frame the many small shops and restaurants that adorn the whole town.
In the evening, the lights of the square reflecting on the sea make it a unique place for family walks.
In the summertime, the entire waterfront area, the square and the old town centre are closed to traffic from 8 p.m. to allow the many guests to stroll in complete safety and tranquillity, eating an excellent ice cream or shopping.
