Famous as the island of exile following Napoleon’s downfall, Elba is more than one footnote in history (although the two residences where he lived in Portoferraio and San Martino are big draws).
The largest in the Tuscan archipelago, it’s situated between the Tyrrhennian and Ligurian seas just a short ferry ride from the coastal town of Piombino.
Surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters with protected coral reefs, rugged green interiors including the highest peak of Monte Capanne, and breathtaking landscapes, it’s a natural paradise.
The island’s rich cultural history dates back to Etruscan times with many majestic remnants and Roman fortifications remaining with contributions from the famous Medici’s.
The main port town of Portoferraio is one of the oldest in the region and is the main entry point but there are charming villages along the coasts including Bagnaia, Marciana and Porto Azzurro where the tight winding streets are perfect for exploring on foot.
During the summer months you can zip over to neighboring Corsica, Capraia and Piana islands for day trips.
