Today, we enjoy a boat ride to the beautiful Isle of Elba, which is situated off the Tuscan coast.

It's the third largest of Italy’s islands and is home to beautiful, unspoilt and rugged scenery with stunning beaches and a pleasant Mediterranean climate to be found there.

Elba is renowned for its clear, blue sea and beautiful beaches. It’s also famous around the world for harbouring the French Emperor Napoleon in 1814 during his exile.

You will find remnants of its glorious past, from the archaeological findings in its museums to the impressive fortresses and military constructions. This is truly one of Tuscany's most unique destinations.

This holiday was very good. The tours were varied and very interesting especially Cinques Terre. The hotel was comfortable and the food good. The downside was the lack of a swimming pool especially as the tour was quite busy and a leisurely swim would have been relaxing at the end of a busy day

Really for us as first timer's we found that the coach was not suitable for that journey, there was no leg room some usb ports were not working.l feel there should have been a overnight stop considering the length of the journey. Every 4hours or so we had toilet breaks and I do understand the need for driver changes. But you never had a good sleep. The drivers from start to finish were great the hotel room was a little dated but the staff there were excellent. We did have a few issues with the excursions, no guides . As I said the only issues we had was the coach and length of the journey
