Quiet corner of Elba up in the Fort. Views of the harbour are spectacular. Entrance fee included admission to 3 other museums. A must if it is a beautiful day, especially for the view from the top of the fort.

After some steps you can enjoy the great views, can be a bit windy so bring a jacket and some water if climbing steps make you thirsty (no restaurant or bar)
