Italy's islands are extremely diverse. Italy has many islands, with Sardinia being the most famous. The island of Capri, off Naples, is also often sung about. Not far away, in the Gulf of Naples, is the island of Ischia, which was formed by volcanic activity.
Most of the Italian islands are very small and generally little known. Officially, Sicily is also considered an island, making it the largest island in Italy. The capital is Palermo, and there are three international airports in Sicily. Lampedus is Italy's southernmost island, but is virtually unknown to international tourists.
Another popular and well-known travel destination is the island of Elba, which is well developed for tourism and is one of the most popular holiday regions in Italy. Elba impresses v. a. by its natural composition and a huge wealth of plants.
