Once upon a time.

Once upon a time. . . there was an enchanted place of a timeless world, a magical land called Tuscany.
Here the waves of the rolling hills, privileged custodians of mysteries of ancient peoples still present in daily gestures of its inhabitants, crashing gently into the sea of those Thirrenii where lustful Venus lost seven gems of her divine tiara...
As scenery hatched by superior minds, blue sea and beautiful islands.
Undisputed queen Fabricia, Elbe Island today, the one chosen by Jason and the Argonauts searching the Golden Fleece, for stop and resting. Porto Argo, Cosmopoli, Portoferraio: from a fisherman village to the capital of the Napoleon's ephemeral empire

Always flexible to accommodate your interests, we can suggest the following as the best schedule for this excursion.

After some steps we'll getting inside the city walls of the city founded by Cosimo I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, in 1548, with the name of Cosmopoli ("Cosimo's City") to discover three forts - Forte Stella, Forte Falcone and Forte Inglese - and a massive line of walls, all still visible today. Thanks to your professional tourist guide you will be able to read the "city" remained to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany until the 18th century, when, due to its strategic position, it was contended by France, England and Austria. Then, in 1814, it was handed over to Napoleon Bonaparte, as the seat of his first exile... and the village still links the most famous period of its history to the Napoleonic one.

After the tour you can enjoy some shopping and strolling in this famous village, discoverig the local food as a great part of your private exploration.
