If you manage to navigate the 6km dirt track from Capoliveri to the mine then this is a fantastic tour of a disused mine on Elba that remains a strategic asset for the Italian state government. It's worth remembering that there are only certain times during the day that tours leave the main visitor centre, which are listed on the website. We weren't aware of that so we brought some tickets for the next tour and were recommended a place to go an eat lunch while we waited.

When it's the time of your tour, you leave in convoy behind a guide bus from the visitor centre down to the mine (if you don't have a car you travel in the bus). It's about a 10 minute drive down to the mine where you're given audio-guides and hard hats. Our tour guide spoke English pretty well and there were only about 6 of us in the tour compared to around 20 in the Italian one. We were led down into the mine mixing our tour guide with audio-guide. Going down into the depths of the earth and seeing the mine was an amazing experience and would highly recommend this tour.

We visited Museo delle Miniere di Capoliveri and also took the Safari in Miniera tour for only 20 euros each. The tour included time at the museum before we jumped into the ex military Jeep for a joy ride around the steep paths in the mountains. It was breath taking and our guide Aldo explained the history, minerals, mining methods and took us prospecting. Fantastic couple of hours! The drive in is a slow 30km per hour on a winding coastal road with beautiful views so allow time for this.

From billing shop they take you via bus to the mines (6 km).
Mines are very fascinating and despite not much organization inside there are 2 Huge amazing extraction caves that will impress you! Fantastic for kids.

A good day to visit when the weather is bad. On a sunny day, you can get baked, literally. It's impressive, worth the trip.

My review does only deals with the area around here and the fantastic images [see mine] you can take here. You can arrive here by car [partly on a dusty road] but much nicer is to walk from Capoliveri as I always do. Oposite the entry to the Minieri you will find an unmarked hiking track which goes uphill [i.e. away from the sea] and after 20 minutes or so you arrive in a VERY nice area. Few people visiting Elba seem to go here or even know about it...
