Oenogastronomy - Elba's cuisine is based on seafood and shellfish, flavored with spices found in the Mediterranean bush, and accompanied by excellent local wines: Ansonica, Elba Bianco, Elba Rosso, Elba Rosso Riserva, Aleatico, Moscato, Rosato. "Schiaccia briaca", "stoccafisso alla riese", "gurguglione" and "sburrita" are names of dishes which affirm cultural fusion and exchange of recipes with many Mediterranean nations. Don't miss the caciucco (fish stew), the imbollite, sort of flat-bread of age-old tradition, stuffed with grasselli figs, and sportella, a bread made with aniseed which, long ago, betrothed couples exchanged at Easter time as a wish for fertility.

At Elba Island, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
