Not too stiff a walk and great views. Not much to see other than the view and the outside of the lighthouse. There are private houses within the fort, an amazing place to live.

On the island of Elba is Forte Stella built in 1548 by Medici. At the north east summit is the historic lighthouse of Portoferraio. Beautiful views and our last stop on our tour.

The lighthouse was built in 1304 to warn sailors of the dangerous shoals near the harbor entrance. During World War II, it was destroyed by the Germans. Livorno lighthouse was rebuilt in 1956 using some of the original stones. It is 154 feet high and has a spiral staircase.
