The largest of the seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, Elba is a territory rich in history, traditions, culture and art. The island was subjected to the etruscan and then roman colonization, but during centuries arrived in the island many other populations, among which Spanish and French. As testimony of their time at Elba, all over the island are fortresses, towers and palaces. Today Elba is a tourists destination, ideal both in summer and spring. Tourists are mainly headed on the beaches, but even inland there are charming places to be explored.
