Map for 43.050583,9.842994
Walking the island trails, visitors get history and nature. See the fortress and defense towers used against Saracen pirates; follow the trail of ancient crops and the traditions of “living” on an island. The landscape is harsh and wild, dominated by Mediterranean brush that opens onto cliff-top views where the horizon traces nearby Corsica and other islands in the Tuscan Archipelago.
A migratory stop that puts Capraia among the most interesting destinations for rare bird species and therefore for bird-watchers! If you love sport and nature, there's nothing better than diving down to the colourful beds to unearth underwater fauna and flora - you'll find some unbelievable surprises!
Enjoy the paths along the island's coastline: sheer cliffs down to the sea, sandy and reefy beaches, hidden bays. Paths that introduce you to age-old towers and places that exude the island's history.
Along roads of the past and hiking trails, you'll discover must-see corners of this paradise.
