The Island: The Island of Elba is an ideal location for sports enthusiasts and those seeking an active holiday. It offers the perfect combination of nature, sea and sport. At a distance of 10 km from the continent and a size of 224 km. sq., Elba is the biggest island of the Tuscan Archipelago and actually the third-largest of Italy. A large part of Elba Island, and of the other islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri) are protected in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago. The climate is always mild with an average annual temperature of 16° C.; the average in the winter is about 10° degrees, 14° in spring, 23° in summer and 17° in autumn. There are more than 70 beaches on the coastline of the island, some very peaceful, others more crowded. Connections: Elba is well connected with the Tuscany coast through Piombino on the mainland. A ferry takes 50 minutes to reach Portoferraio, the main port of the island. Timetables depend on the season. In high season, there is a ferry almost every hour. Piombino is about 2 hours from Florence (through motorway connections). A daily excursion to the city or to the Tuscan countryside is very practical from Elba. The island is also reachable by plane direct to Marina di Campo in summer by airlines out of Milan, Rome, and Pisa in Italy; Bern, Switzerland; Munich, Germany; and Vienna, Austria. Car rentals are available on Elba Island. History: Elba, one time home-in-exile to Napoleon, has been largely ignored by English-speaking tourists. The Island is graced with a countless variety of beaches, from rocky coves to pebbled inlets to sandy beaches. The water is cool, refreshing, and clear. Monte Capanne, at 1.018 meters, is the island's highest peak and provides hikers with a panoramic view of the mainland of Italy and the islands of Corsica, Capraia, Pianosa and Monte Cristo. Its forests and mountain trails attract hikers and mountain bikers, while stables offer guided rides through the hills. Elba was inhabited as early as the 10th century BC by the Greeks. Then, through the centuries, was conquered by the Etruscans, the Romans, the Normans and the Saracens. In 1802 it was annexed by France, and in 1814 Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled to Elba under the Treaty of Fontainebleau. Napoleon left behind many marks, including two residences which are now open to tourists.
