Monte Cristo is a small Italian Island, about 4.3 kilometers across at its widest point, about halfway between Corsica and mainland Italy; south of Elba and west of Giglio. It is part of the Tuscan Archipelago. The island is probably best known as a fictional setting in the novel The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, père.
Monte Cristo is Italian for “The mountain of Christ".
