Elba, the pearl of the Tuscan Archipelago, the island without frontiers: the sea, the beaches, the green of the countryside, the small fortress towns, archaeological treasures, chestnut woods and more, has existed for what seems like an eternity. Elba is the largest among the Tuscan islands and the third largest island in Italy after Sicily and Sardinia. It is 10 km far from the mainland and it has an area of 224 square kilometres. Its coast stretches for 147 km and its main roads cover totally 190 km. It has a population of about 30000 and it is divided into 8 municipalities. Elba is famous, of course, for Napoleon's stay which altered its history (you can visit Napoleon's San Martino a few minutes away from the school site at Biodola) but by no means summarizes it; throughout the island you find traces of successive civilizations, from the Etruscans to the Romans, the Saracens, the Pisans and the French.
Elba gives the sensation of so much in so little, as in the small spaces of the island we travel over tourist attractions and natural landscapes of such contrast; areas dried out by sun and wind, others green with life, sandy or pebble stone beaches, rocky coastlines and cliffs. Elba has modern and well-equipped tourist facilities: museums, sport centers, diving centers, a golf club, amusement parks for children and adults, as well as sailing schools. The Hotel del Golfo has its own private facilities, all accessible to the LASER participants.
