NOW TRY ELBA

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

It goes some way to un­der­stand­ing Napoleon’s yearn­ing to lead France that he tried to rule twice, but it says more that for the se­cond at­tempt he man­aged to re­move him­self from the is­land of Elba to do so. Who wouldn’t want to be ex­iled to the Tus­can isle and stay there? With 190 beaches, ice-clear wa­ter and very hike­able moun­tains, one would find it hard to dis­agree with Napoleon’s mother’s take on Elba: “Beau­ti­ful, charm­ing, el­e­gant and fright­en­ingly pow­er­ful.” Trav­el­sphere (trav­el­sphere.co.uk) of­fers seven nights on Elba from £769pp, in­clud­ing flights to Pisa, ferry trans­fers, and three-star B&B.
