Island of Elba,Tuscan Archipelago Italy

Island of Elba,Tuscan Archipelago Italy : Walking in the Footsteps of Napoleon. Elba is surprisingly (and delightfully) different from some of the other islands I have sailed to. The bends and curves of its coastline made up of capes and coves; the undulating landscape of mountains, valleys and hills; the secluded beaches, some pebbled--some sand; the crystal-clear water scattered with tiny fishing boats and the picturesque port towns and villages rich in history. And yet... it seems not many have yet discovered this tiny island of tranquility. This may be the destination you are looking for your next relaxation vacation!

Elba and the Tuscan Archipelago The Islands of the Tuscan Archipelago Seven are the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Elba, Giglio, Giannutri, Capraia, Pianosa, Montecristo and Gorgona. The largest of these islands is Elba – the third largest island in the entire Mediterranean, and with a seemingly-infinite array of assets, Elba requires a generous amount of time to visit and enjoy all of it. It is made up of eight communes, all of them with their own particular attraction. Similarly, each of Elba's other “six sisters” distinguish themselves with their own unique traits and features; nonetheless, their largest common denominator is their fantastically wild nature and landscapes.Island of Giglio photo by ghirolfo53_14 - flickrYet, the Island of Giglio offers a little something more. Besides the traditionally beautiful panoramic views that these islands share, Giglio also possesses lovely and characteristic urban areas: not to miss among these are the piers at Giglio Port; the picturesque and winding streets running and the remains of the Pisan stronghold that is Giglio Castle; the bay at Campese; and the coves near Punta Capel Rosso. Once you observe the artful and delicate interweaving of human construction and Mother Nature here, you will undertand why it is an unforgettable sight. Capraia is an excellent spot for snorkelers and scuba divers, who will want to explore the magnificent seabeds with their remarkable underwater archaeological finds. Montecristo (a nature reserve since 1971) is the most pristine and least-inhabited of the island chain. Very few buildings or structures are present here, but one of them definitely worth visiting is the 18th-Century villa of the Englishman Watson-Taylor. A triumph of nature in its purest form - and of life at its most simple - is romantic Giannutri, where one can breathe in the extremely fresh air of this half moon-shaped island. Then hop over to Pianosa and admire the beautiful ruins of the ancient Roman villa of Agrippa; and if you have the required special permit, you can enjoy the stupendous scenery of Gorgona, specifically the gorgeous beaches Cala Martina and Cala Scirocco.
