Elba is located in the middle of the Tuscan Archipelago
Marine Park and can be reached by just an hour's ferry
ride from Piombino. It has an area of 200 square km
and a coastline of 147 km, continuously alternating
between beaches and rocks, gentle slopes and sheer cliffs.
It has a varied orography with Mount Capanne at its
apex, more than a thousand meters high. Elba offers
a territory rich in hidden corners to explore and both
marine and mountain panoramas. Besides these, the island
is well prepared for tourism (on Elba there are about:
200 hotels, 50 residences, 30 camping sites, and 30
farm house inns). The number of residents on the island
is a little more than twenty thousand.
