We are on a costa cruise which stops, amongst other places, in Portoferraio, Elba.  We are wanting to take a tour around the Island, which the cruise line does not offer.  Normally we don't like to take the cruise tour as they are too expensive, and have just picked up a taxi at the port, and arranged a tour ourselves on the spot.  As this is quite a small port, am wondering if this is going to be a possibility.  


Any ideas, or suggestions, or recommendations very welcome.

Although it is  years since we were there, then taxis lined up right by ship we just ask for a tour round island & haggled for the price. 

I am sure you will be able to pick up a taxi either by ship or outside dock, given the security now.

That's the kind of thing we were hoping for.  Have done it in many places before, but this port is new to us.  Fingers crossed then.  Thanks for the info.
