Marciana Marina

Marciana Marina is an old fishing port which still today keeps intact its charm thanks to a grid of lanes and its houses facing the sea with their characteristic pastel coloured walls.

Marciana Marina is an old fishing port which still today keeps intact its charm thanks to a grid of lanes and its houses facing the sea with their characteristic pastel coloured walls. A must to see is Il Cotone (from the word cote: massive), the fishermen’s village clinging to the rocks overhanging the sea, it was the first inhabited nucleus from which the town developed.

For a long time the economy of the town was based on agriculture and above all fishing. Here, at Marciana, there was one of the tuna preparation sites on the island. Today next to the old port is a modern tourist harbour, which together with the small pebble beach and the quaint lanes make up one of the principle resorts on the Island of Elba. The sea front road is fine for a stroll from Cotone to the old tower built to defend the town from Saracen excursions.

If you happen to be in Marciana Marina on the 11th August do not miss the lovely Santa Chiara festival with a procession and fireworks on the sea.
