It is said that Edmundo Dantés, famous character created by Alejandro Dumas and better known as the Count of Monte CristoHe found a wonderful hidden treasure on the island from which he took his name. Adventure and romanticism led many to want to visit this famous island that is located in the Tuscan archipelago, forming part of a set of seven islands located between the coasts of Tuscany and Corsica.

This small islet of about 10 square kilometers is part of the Archipelago National Park Tuscan and is considered a natural paradise that was impossible to access due to the complete restriction imposed by the Italian authorities so far. Only researchers and technicians stepped on the island in addition to the family that is responsible for monitoring it.

However, this is about to change. In order to be one of the 1,000 people -ample to 3,000- fortunate that they can set foot on the island you have to arm yourself with patience. It will be necessary to send a request via internet and wait for the turn to come. Whoever gets it, can enjoy the privilege of entering the dozens of trails that run through the island, walk the white sand of its beaches, inspect its marine caves where dolphins and seals take refuge and visit a century villa XVII that is still standing or the ruins of an ancient monastery. But before all this, you must attend an environmental education course that will take place on the first day of visit in the natural museum of Cala Maestra, the main beach of the island.

What does not make the article very clear is whether it will be possible to spend more than 6 hours on the island that mark the maximum stay there, or if people can bathe in its, until now, virgin waters. The truth is that I hope these restrictions remain. It is good that virgin places like this continue to exist on Earth.

And ... when will the island where the cave and the hidden pirate ship of the Goonies open to the public? For that yes I made the tail that was needed. What a classic of our adolescence! :).
