Elba Island

Famed for being the home of Napoleon during his time in exile, this little island in the Tyrrhenian Sea has sun-kissed beaches, imposing fortresses and thermal baths.

Explore the rugged mountains and soaring sea cliffs of Elba Island, the largest island in the Tuscan Archipelago. The island’s dramatic landscape is the setting for a captivating history, from the days of the ancient Etruscans to the exile of Napoleon in the 19th century. Discover extraordinary beaches framed by rough rock precipices or cruise the mountaintop trails with your bicycle. Dive to the bottom of the ocean floor and experience the protected waters of Europe’s largest marine park.

Most visitors begin their trip to Elba Island in the harbor town of Portoferraio. Stroll around the compact town center where portside cottages huddle around the natural cove. Admire Renaissance fortifications such as Forte Stella and check out the 18th-century lighthouse. Explore the history exhibits in the Museo Nazionale housed in Napoleon’s official residence, the grand Palazzina dei Mulini. Learn about the French Emperor who spent 300 days on Elba Island in exile. You can also see Napoleon’s country villa, San Martino, in the craggy inland foothills. Ascend Monte Capanne via the ropeway and look out across the entire island from the summit.

Visit the town of Marciana Marina to find a beautifully preserved promenade that showcases the town’s 18th-century heritage. Admire the prettily painted façades in Porto Azzurro and learn about the precious metals that were mined in Rio Marina.

You’ll find idyllic beaches tucked into the notches between cliff-edged headlands. Go to Campo nell’Elba or Cottoncello and stretch out on a sun lounge. Enjoy the wide-open ambiance of Capo Bianco or go camping at Lacona. Dive in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park and come face-to-face with the coastline’s marine life. Embark on a high-octane tour of Elba Island’s mountain trails with your bike or hike between the craggy peaks that shelter olive and chestnut groves. Soothe tired muscles in the thermal baths at San Giovanni.

Elba Island is in the Tuscan Archipelago. Ferries carrying vehicles depart from the port of Piombino and arrive in Portoferraio after approximately 70 minutes. If you are traveling without a car, catch the fast ferry and reach the island in 40 minutes.
