Hi everyone

I was wondering if someone could help me to identify a particular tree that grows on Capri Island, Italy.

I have sinuses issues and when I hiked there last time suddenly my nose got unstuffed when I entered a small forest.

I think its one of those trees with bark peeling off.

I attach an image:

Do you have a better, closer picture?  The bark peels off—is it some variety of eucalyptus?
