Let's plan our next destination. It is not easy by health reasons right now but even before it was not easy. If we want to visit this famous italian island, we'll have to apply !

Up until 10 years ago, Montecristo wasn't open to tourists at all, and access is still extremely limited. The island opens to visitors twice per year but not just anybody can go. The Italian government only gives out 1,000 day permits per year to visit, and Protected content those spaces are reserved for students.

But demand to visit the island is high, considering it was the setting of Alexandre Dumas’s famous novel, “The Count of Monte Cristo.” In the story, the main character, Edmond Dantès, is serving a prison sentence off the coast of Marseilles when a fellow prisoner tells him of treasure to be found on Monte Cristo. He eventually goes off to find said treasure, rebrands himself the Count of Monte Cristo, and heads back to France to seek revenge on his enemies.
