The wide variety of options are ideal for leisurely family trips, athletes looking for a challenge or for fun team-building activities for colleagues during business events.

Elba Wines

Winery tours

Elba boasts quality wines with a long history that deserves to be explored with visits to the renowned wineries on the island, and enjoyed with tasting sessions held by expert sommeliers, organised on request for Désirée Hotel guests.
The winemaking tradition of Elba Island dates back to the Etruscans, continuing through the Greek and Roman ages to the time of Napoleon, who was so taken with the wines made on Elba that he increased grape production during his exile on the island, making the most of the mineral-rich soil and mild, fairly dry winters, and the small differences in temperature.
Elba Rosso DOC, a reserve wine with a distinctive ruby-red colour and fruity aroma; Ansonica, a mouthfilling dry white wine, the perfect pairing for fresh fish dishes, or Aleatico DOCG, the typical purplish-coloured Elba dessert wine, with origins dating back to Greek times, best enjoyed with dry baked goods, tarts and other sweet specialities: all three are examples of wines produced on the island that have earned worldwide renown for their distinctive flavour and aromas, which can be enjoyed while you listen to the stories of the people who have been making them for decades, bringing experimentation and innovation on board the local tradition.
Tasting experiences in the wineries can be enriched by sampling other local produce, such as IGP-label Tuscan extra virgin olive oil and Elba ricotta: an unforgettable experience for the palate.

Exploring the Tuscan Archipelago

Island boat tour

Dominated by Elba, the Tuscan Archipelago is made up of a large number of islands, islets and banks emerging from the sea. Désirée Hotel invites guests to explore them in sailboats moored in Marciana Marina, or in a dinghy that can be hired directly on the hotel’s private beach, with the aid of a skipper if necessary.
Setting off from Elba, visitors can admire the spectacular flora and fauna on the islands of Pianosa and Montecristo (celebrated in the novel by Dumas), as well as little hamlets famous for their centuries of history and culture.

A treasure chest of biodiversity in the Tuscan Archipelago

The island of Pianosa

Part of the protected area formed by the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, one of the most characteristic features of Pianosa is that it is almost completely flat, making it particularly easy to explore both on foot and by mountain bike.
The island is an important habitat for a number of species of animals and plants, including rare birds and marine mammals, as well as an attraction of significant historical interest.

The Elba Island aquarium

Marina di Campo Aquarium

The Elba Island aquarium, in Marina di Campo, is one of the most complete aquariology facilities in Italy, and is just 6 km from Désirée Hotel. With a surface area of over 1000 square metres, the aquarium is home to more than 150 different species of marine life, some of them saved from accidental capture during fishing activities.
The aquarium plays an important role in educating visitors and promoting respect for marine life and the rehabilitation of injured animals, which are released back into their natural environment after a period of convalescence in the aquarium facilities. Fish, crustaceans, molluscs and echinoderms can be observed here in a habitat that replicates their natural living conditions as closely as possible, and visitors can also enjoy close encounters with rare creatures such as giant snails and newts.
This spectacular attraction, sure to appeal to both adults and children, is just a ten-minute drive or 30-minute bike ride from Désirée Hotel.
