Elba is the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago, situated 10 km from the Italian northwest coast.
Known for being the location of Napoleon’s exile in 1814, Elba is also famous for its astounding natural beauty, namely its clear blue waters, rugged coastline and pristine beaches.
It also boasts a multi-coloured underwater landscape comprising coral reefs, blue fish, lobsters, starfish and even a sunken ship, making it a haven for divers and snorkelers.
After a day by the seaside, be sure to make your way over to one of the fascinating museums showcasing a range of archaeological findings, or to Napoleon’s stunning Villa dei Mulini for an insight into the island’s rich history.
As the most visited and popular island in the Tuscan Archipelago, Elba has an extensive ferry network with multiple ports providing crossings to the surrounding islands and the Italian mainland, all operated by a range of leading ferry companies.
Corsica is a Mediterranean island, situated west of Italy, south of the French mainland and immediately north of Sardinia.
Its stunning 1,000 km coastline has over 200 beaches, whilst the inland offers a mix of mountain scenery, awesome valleys and idyllic hilltop towns, so you can see why the locals nicknamed it ‘the island of beauty’.
Although belonging to France, Corsica has a unique feel to it. This is perhaps most evident in the local dialect and the cultural obsession with flute instruments. However, drawing similarities with the mainland, Corsicans also love fine food and wine, especially fresh seafood and charcuterie.
Along the coastline are multiple ports, and, thanks to the island’s convenient location in the Mediterranean Sea, it’s within reach from the French mainland, Italy and the surrounding islands. There's plenty of choice, too, with frequent routes provided by many different ferry companies.
