The services provided by the harbour are a gem fitting perfectly the history of the place and the symbol of the careful and meticulous welcome of the seafaring people
The Arrighi Farm is a true jewel of the island. Located very close to Porto Azzurro, is has always belonged to the founder family and today is also part of the Arcipelago Toscano National Park.
