A sacred area for the Romans who reveled in the wines produced here

Capoliveri is situated in the southeast of the Island of Elba, on a ridge of Mount Calamita, 167 meters above sea level.

Places of historical and cultural interest are the Sanctuary of Madonna delle Grazie, the Focardo Fortress and the Chapel of San Michele Apse. The main centers inside the communal district of Capoliveri are Lacona, Naregno, Lido, Pareti, Morcone, Innamorata and Cala Grande. ...
