Italian Islands- Elba

Elba Island
Elba  is a Mediterranean island in Tuscany, Italy,situated at 20 kilometres  from the coastal town of Piombino. The largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago, Elba is the third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia. It is located between the Tyrrhenian Sea and Ligurian Sea, about 50 kilometres  east of the French island of Corsica.
The beautiful island of Elba has benefitted from the comfort and tools provided by technology and civilisation without compromising its natural heritage, landscape, sea and coastlines, mountains and forests. It has not allowed its very ancient hamlets to be spoiled or the customs of its thousands of years of civilisation to be destroyed.
The island of Elba, with its fine sand beaches, towering sea cliffs and rich sea bottoms, is part of the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, the largest marine park in Europe.
Elba island offers the opportunity to admire ancient mines, visit medieval villages, taste a rich and genuine cuisine or just relax and enjoy the profuse natural environment.
We must not forget that the  Elba island hosted Napoleon Bonaparte during his exile in 1814. As an emperor, Napoleon used his time as an exile to undertake important economic and cultural initiatives for the island.
The island of Elba, pearl of the Tuscan  Archipelago, the island without limits: the clear blue sea, the beautiful beaches and the small inlets, the gree countyside, the small towns on the hills, the archeological treasures, the chestnut trees woods, and more follow each other without end;
In the setting of a crystalline sea and sandy beaches, green gulfs and secret or sheer rock faces, the island is rich in pleasant surprises. There are shady forests, flat countryside and sun-drenched fields where agave and prickly pears reign supreme. There are also the small villages by the sea, which often still manage to preserve their ancient us.The island gives the sensation of many things in one, in the short distances of the island you will travel across very different touristic and ambient realities: zones where the sunshine and the wind have dried us the soil, others were the green dominates, golden beaches, shingle beaches and steep cliffs.
