Piazzale della Linguella, 5, 57037 Portoferraio LI, Italia

The Archaeological Museum in Portoferraio is located inside the ancient salt warehouse of the Linguella and exhibits archaeological artefacts found in the Tuscan Archipelago, organised in historical-topographical order. The timeline stretches from the 8th century BCE to the 5th century CE.
