Filippo spends his summers at his family’s agriturismo on this historic island just off the Tuscan coast. Elba is often called the pearl of the Tuscan Archipelago, and in fact Aphrodite is said to have lost a pearl from her necklace here when trying to reach its coastline. Many come for its beaches, clear blue waters and picturesque landscapes, but Elba is also an island with a fascinating history and longstanding culinary tradition. Made famous by Napolean Bonarparte's less than difficult exile in 1814, the island has been inhabited by just about every civilization under the Tuscan sun, each leaving behind their contribution to its culture and cuisine.

As you explore its natural beauty, Filippo will provide insights into the local culture and traditions. He will take you for a tour and tasting at the island’s most prominent estate followed by a seafood lunch on the coast. Enjoy a swim or relax on the beach before heading back to the ship.
