Why you should visit the island of Elba

Italy never ceases to amaze me. From the majestic Dolomites to the deep blue waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, the Bel Paese, as Dante and Petrarch nicknamed it, offers plenty of tranquil nooks that are not (yet) spoiled by the vices of overtourism. Elba island is still one of those places. Situated only 10km (6mi) from Italy’s Tuscan coast, Elba is part of the Tuscan archipelago and the third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia.
