Third just to Sicily and Sardegna Elba is one of the largest islands belonging to Italy. Historically it was important for its iron production and mining. Today it is a hotspot for tourists, but not as run over as other parts of Italy. Luckily the islanders were able to succesfully maintain the authenticity and quietness of Elba.
Elba is an island at the western coast of Italy. Mostly known for being the last principality of Napoleon after being exiled from France. Also it is a place for many beautiful flowers growing all over the main town Portoferraio.

While travelling Italy during early fall the sun still seems to be your constant companion, the heat isn’t as overbearing anymore as in summer though. So you can better enjoy this European country being particularly rich in history as well as in nature.
When travelling Austria in October there is a certain mood setting over the country. The heat of summer is over and nature is beginning to prepare for a more harsh season of the year. Still the weather can be pretty nice with blue skies and a more milder, gentler sun. The leaves begin to fall and brown and yellow colours are laying over the landscape. Autumn is here and it is the perfect time for a walk in the hills.
