• Elba Island, view
  • Overview

    The Island of Elba is situated between the Tyrrhennian and Ligurian Sea, and is the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago. This natural paradise is famed for its blue waters, green landscapes and beautiful hills, combined with fantastic flora and fauna, as well as the warm welcome of its inhabitants. There are gorgeous beaches a plenty: sand, shingle and pebble. Scuba divers will be delighted with the crystal clear waters and beautifully preserved coral reef.

    Elba’s history dates back to Etruscan and Roman times, but is especially remembered for having been the home of Napoleon Bonaparte during his 1814 exile. The houses where he lived, one in Portoferraio and the other in San Martino, are some of the most famous attractions of the island. The Villa of San Martino, also known as Villa Bonaparte, was one of the residences of the emperor Napoleon from 1814 to 1815. At the entrance of the Villa, there is a statue of Galatea, by Antonio Canova, inspired by Paolina Bonaparte.

    Monte Capanne, also known as the roof of the Tuscan Archipelago, is one of the highest mountains of the island. It is home to many animal species and offers a wide variety of plants and trees. Famous for the beautiful view one can enjoy from its top, Monte Capanne is a particularly popular landmark, the peak of which can be reached by chair lift.

    Bagnaia is a small, charming village and the perfect destination to enjoy the true essence, flavours and scents of the Elba. Enjoy a seaside sunset here, sipping local wine and dining on delicious local produce. Hilltop Capoliveri is famous for its street markets and Chiesa di San Michele, a Romanesque church.
