The island of Montecristo is one of the seven islands that make up the Tuscan Archipelago in the Tyrrhenian Sea, about 60 km from the coast of Italy. Made famous by Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel of betrayal and revenge - “The Count of Monte Cristo”, the uninhabited island is shrouded with mysteries and numerous legends that surround this place. Until very recently, Monetcristo remained strictly off-limits to tourists after it was declared a nature reserve more than 40 years ago. Today, only a thousand tourists are allowed to visit the island each year under a tightly-controlled permit system.
