3 friends stopped in campiglia on the way to elba. Campiglia marittima is on the train route from rome and made a good stopping point before the trip to piombino and the ferry. It is a classic old town!
I found this B&B /hotel on line and it looked intriguing. It was. Old fashioned with a real charm. Davide the owner met the taxi on the street below and carried our luggage up the alley way to the three rooms.
We didn't go to the restaurant as we were too tired (having flown in the night before) to have a good meal. Instead we had pizza and snacks in the town square where we listened to an Italian guitar player sing Bobby McGee. Surreal. We had a good breakfast the next morning. Davide called the taxi for us and had staff carry out the suitcases. Where we stayed there were steep ( to Americans I guess) stairs.
One tip: Be sure to check the prices. We paid more than anticipated because I didn't ask for the final price when I made reservations and mis understood what we would be paying.
