The Island of Elba is best known as the place where Napoleon spent his exile: 10 months during which the Emperor left traces of his important presence all over the island, from the Villa dei Mulini and Villa San Martino imperial residencies to the magnificent Vigilanti Theatre.

Elba is Tuscany’s biggest island and Italy’s third-largest, and is only 6 miles away from the mainland. Despite being only a small island, it offers a great deal of different colours and scents, as well as many cultural experiences (for example, if you decide to go and visit one of the many hilltop towns or open air museums) or recreational ones (like hiking, cycling, horse riding, swimming, deep sea diving, kayaking, hang gliding, free climbing).

There’s a small but complete airport in Marina di Campo that connects Elba with some of the main European cities like Frakfurt or Lugano. If you prefer, you can reach the island by ferry, fast ferry or hydrofoil from Piombino to Portoferraio, Rio Marina or Cavo.
