Elba is the biggest island of the Tuscan Archipelago and the third largest in Italy after Sardinia and Sicily. The island of Elba is famous around the world for harboring French Emperor Napoleon in 1814 during his exile. There are several memories of its glorious past as we visit the island, from the archaeological findings in its museums to the impressive fortresses and military constructions such as Castello del Volterraio and then the beautiful Napoleonic residences of the 1800s such as Palazzina dei Mulini. In particularlyi, in Portoferraio there are the most important fortifications of the island such as Fort Stella, Fort Falcone and the recently restored English Fort. The English fort is evidence of Napoleon’s imperial presence. In the beautiful harbor of Portoferraio you can visit the Martello Tower, which is actually the entrance to the old port. However what really makes Elba famous and renowned are its clear and blue sea and beautiful beaches. Infact Elba has benefitted from the comfort and tools provided by technology and civilisation without compromising its natural heritage. The extraordinary richness of its landscapes, both land and marine, turns the island of Elba into a unique destination in Tuscany!
