Elba is the largest remaining stretch of land from the ancient tract that once connected the Italian peninsula to Corsica. The northern coast faces the Ligurian Sea, the eastern coast the Piombino Channel, the southern coast the Tyrrhenian Sea, and the Corsica Channel divides the western tip of the island from neighbouring Corsica. The terrain is quite varied and is thus divided into several areas based on geomorphology. The central part of the island is a mostly flat section. It is where the major centres can be found: Portoferraio, Campo nell'Elba. To the east is the oldest part of the island, formed over 3 million years ago. In the hilly area, dominated by Monte Calamita, are the deposits of iron that made Elba famous. The island has a network of trails for road racers looking for more technical routes for their training, trails and dirt roads for bikers to have fun on, and accessible routes for families with children who need safe and relaxing routes. The correctness of the data collected is guaranteed by the GPS systems used. The routes marked in red are maintained safe by the CAI, the Italian Hiking Club. The routes marked in grey are not signed and are recommended for expert hikers only. printed maps available: https://www.libreriageografica.com/
