It’s said that when Venus emerged from the waves, seven jewels fell from her crown. Instead of sinking beneath the waves, the jewels transformed into seven beautiful islands just off the coast of Tuscany. Elba, the largest island, must have been quite a jewel. Elba is Italy’s third largest island (after Sicily and Sardinia) but has an off the beaten track atmosphere. Add the verdant hills, turquoise waters, and good old fashioned Italian cooking and Elba feels like a little slice of paradise.
Elba sits in the middle of Europe’s largest marine park, and is where Napoleon spent some time in exile before his defeat at Waterloo. His summer and winter properties are available to tour. The island has something for everyone to enjoy, with coastal beach resorts perfect for a family trip and a lush interior ideal for hiking enthusiasts.
Elba is an island made for exploring. There are plenty of churches, forts, castles and battlefields to discover. Hiking, mountain biking, free climbing and scuba diving are all popular past-times for thrill seekers. Those who just want to chill out will find plenty of opportunities to do so on the islands twelve beaches. During Roman times Elba was known as “the island of good wines” and the reputation persists to this day.
