The Island of Elba

Elba is the largest Tuscan island. It belongs to the national park of the Tuscan archipelagos, along with Capraia, Giglio, Giannutri, Montecristo and Pianosa....Read more Rich in iron - suggestive traces of the many abandoned mines can still be noticed - the island ensured Rome's military success by providing the metal with which javelin heads were forged. With numberless bays, coves, beaches and cliffs, the island prides in some of the most enchanting sea views of the entire Mediterranean. Elba is also the privileged target of divers, who find its beautiful seabed the ideal setting for demanding dives, while there are also ideal spots for beginners. Diving course elba The eastern coast, which is the least visited, preserves evident traces of the island's mining past. Little jewels overlook a beautiful sea: Cavo, Rio Marina with its magnificent Appiani castle and, the neighbouring Rio nell'Elba, an international capital for mineral crystals. The Volterraio castle towers above them all, impregnable over the centuries and visible from the entire island.


In the north the thick and luxuriant Mediterranean maquis encircles the island almost up to the sea, forming hidden secluded coves. Portoferraio, once a leading town, stands surrounded by clear green waters with the Martello tower and the ancient forts towering over it. Traces of history can be found everywhere: first the Etruscans and Romans, then Pisans, Genoese and Florentines left remains of remarkable historical interest on this beautiful island.

The island of Montecristo

Its landscape is characterised by large superimposed rocks scattered everywhere - they look unstable and about to fall at any moment. Called tafoni, they are moulded into bizarre forms by wind erosion. Alexandre Dumas made it famous by setting one of his most famous novels there.

The island of Pianosa

The fifth island in the Tuscan Archipelago, Pianosa measures little more than 10 km² and is scarcely inhabited. It owes its name (Planasia in ancient times) to the fact that it mostly comprises level ground. Excluding the 42 m high lighthouse, the highest point is only 29m asl, while the island's average height is 18m asl. The site of a prison that was built there in 1858 (Pianosa agricultural penal colony), it was open to visitors till 1998. Today it is garrisoned by few policemen appointed to watch over the buildings. Sandro Pertini, future President of the Republic, was imprisoned in Pianosa for political reasons in 1932. Village for family elba Both its specific use as penal colony and, recent annexation to the Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, have kept the island practically uncontaminated. Its waters were preserved from indiscriminate fishing for 150 years and, to date they offer a safe refuge to numberless fish species. Sailing and fishing are, in fact, forbidden for one mile around the island. Bathing is only allowed on one beach where the beautiful sea bed flourishes with life. Close

Maremma Tuscany

Holiday Village Rosselba Le Palme is located in a fairy-tale-like natural setting in Alta Maremma (Upper Maremma) of Livorno, a real Italian green lung. ...Continua Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, which has earned the highest number of Blue Flags of the European Union for water quality and hospitality level, the Maremma region holds in its geographical chest art and nature, for an unforgettable holiday for the whole family.

Besides being the cradle of the ancient Etruscans, the Maremma area was made accessible by the Romans, through the Via Cassia. The merchant class in the Middle Ages enriched it with sumptuous municipal palaces and squares, and the clergy embellished it with Episcopal palaces of scenic beauty (Palazzo Piccolomini in Pienza, for example). Over the course of time, people have embellished, cultivated and inhabited it with respect, tying urban innovation to the traditional combination of art and nature.

Dante identified the Maremma area between Cecina (Tuscany) and Corneto (Lazio). Even today its borders are difficult to determine, but by convention the northern Maremma comprises the province of Livorno (built by the Medici in the 1500s as a model of ideal city), the hilly areas of the province of Pisa, those of the Val di Cecina, of Val di Cornia and partly the Colline Metallifere, extremely rich in iron, that have been used and exported since the Etruscans.

Among the main localities of the Maremma to be visited we include: Cecina, Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci, Campiglia Marittima, Suvereto, Populonia and Piombino. They are charming medieval towns, hiding ancient secrets and wonders. Close

The taset of Tuscany

Tuscan cuisine is rooted in ancient times and is famous for the huge variety of products it has to offer. The tastes of its countryside and its sea are amongst the most celebrated in history. ...Read more Wild boar, considered the King of the Maremma, is a base for many different recipies; served as a ham for antipasto, or in a pasta sauce for a first course and, naturally, in many forms as main course. The local table is weighed down with handmade cheeses, ricotta, soups made with cereals and onions, chestnuts, olives and grapes. All satisfying the most demanding of palates.

The wine route

The wine route is thousands of years old, even the ancient inhabitants of the Maremma had their own local wine called Falisco, that was served hot in terracotta flasks.
The production and research into the alchemic properties of the drink, that was referred to as the “ nectar of the gods”, has never stopped. Today the Etruscan coast is famous for its wines, and boasts three medals:
the Bolgheri D.O.C., Val di Cornia D.O.C. and the Montescudaio D.O.C.

Food accompaniments

The idea of enhancing the taste of our food by accompanying it with a wine that has undergone a natural maturation and two or three years of ageing is a pleasure that is often ignored. The right accompaniments can create the most delicious unions without undermining health and dietary requirements.
Here are just a few suggestions from true gastronomic experts: with light antipasti, eggs or shell fish, try the Montescudaio Bianco. The Montescudaio Red is perfect for first course dishes served with red sauces, game dishes and cheese.
Desserts including cakes and tarts should be accompanied by the Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice from Bolghieri. The unusual name “Occhio di Pernice” or “Eye of the partridge”, derives from its intense red colour. Close
