Historical notes on Portoferraio. Portoferraio is the main town on Elba island, with 15,000 residents and a tourist and commercial port that has been active since Etruscan-Roman times. Of ancient origin, it owes its name to the flourishing iron mining activity that was exported from the island to the entire continent. Today, Portoferraio is a tourist destination of absolute prestige, thanks to a first-class local organisation and an accommodation offer that, with the local hotels and inns, over time has been able to combine respect for the territory with the modern requirements of mass tourism. The evening and night life of Portoferraio is particularly appreciated, with numerous clubs offering the possibility of spending pleasant summer evenings tasting excellent traditional local dishes.
