Portoferraio is the capital city of the small historical island of Elba between the North Italian coast and Corsica. If you break down the name Portoferraio, it means "The Iron Gate". It gets this name because of the vast quantities of iron ore extracted on Elba and sent to the Italian mainland.
Italy boasts a wealth of popular destinations and has something for everyone to enjoy.
Take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the ancient Colosseum in Rome, visit the leaning tower of Pisa, admire the many masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery of Florence or simply relax on one of the many beautiful beaches that can be found along Italy's miles of stunning coastline.
Florence is an often overlooked tourist destination. However, it is well worth a visit.The town was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and it still shows in the architecture of the city. There are many fine art galleries from famous artists - including the Galleria degli Uffizi, where you can see Boticelli's `Birth of Venus'.
The galleries themselves are often works of art, with the walls and ceiling ornately decorated with various brightly coloured murals.
