Elba - The Best the Tuscany Archipelago has to Offer

Elba happens to be not only the largest island in the Tuscan archipelago, but also one of the most beautiful and most renowed.Being positioned between the Tyrrhenian and Ligurian seas, this island is famous for its yacht charter opportunities. It has a long history involving famous names such as that of Napoleon, but today it's more commonly known to tourists for its wines and beautiful beaches.

Yacht charter Elba vacations have thier charm due to the rustic Italian appeal and the island's position between the Tyrrhenian and the Ligurian Seas. Also, it happens to be the third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia and an integral part of the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, but that's just one of the many reasons Yacht Charter crews come here.

It's a uncommonly known fact that 50 km east of Corsica and under 10km from the Tuscan coast, the island of Elba is the only part of land remaining of an ancient causeway that used to link Corsica to the Italian peninsula. The north shore faces the Ligurian Sea, the east shore the Piombino channel, while the southern one theTyrrhenian Sea. The geography of the island can be best observed by yacht charter explorers from its highest point, Mount Capanne (1018m), in the west. The center is dominated by a flat region while the south has many hills.

You'll be greeted by a form of spontaneous vegetation the locals call "macchia" which is common to this part of the Mediterranean, once you set foot on yacht charter Elba. It's made up of shrubs and aromatic plants mostly that form an evergreen blanket over the island. Some of the endemic animal species that you can find here include the mouflon and the wild boar and perhaps you'll be fortunate enough to see one during your trip.

What drew the first inhabitants to this island were the iron deposits. The first were the Ligures Ilvati, followed shortly by the Etruscans and the Romans who further developed ore mining in the region. When the Roman power faded, the island came under constant siege by Saracens and barbarians. From the 11th century on it changed hands between the various counts and lords that succeeded in Italy.

One of the most notable "guests" to the island was Emperor Napoleon, a name that still draws sailors to these shores even today for yacht charter holidays in Elba. It became a part of the Unified Kingdom of Italy in 1860. Today, the island is rather famed for its wines and tourist facilities rather than its history. The most important city on the island reamins Portoferraio.
