Fit for an Emperor

With its lush, undulating landscape and secluded coves and beaches, Elba Island is a paradise waiting to be discovered. Ancient tribes named it Ilva, and its minerals have been prized since Greek times and used for Etruscan art. Romans enlarged their empire conquering the island, and a Grand Duke, some princes, Spain and France all claimed this piece of land.

Elba is most famous for having served as a forced exile site to Napoleon in 1814, and you can now visit his historic residence at Palazzina dei Mulini. The Castello del Volterraio, the Torre del Martello fortress and the Archaeological Museum are also places full of history that are worth a visit.

The island is well known for its beautiful beaches and crystalline waters. As well as summer villas and marinas, it is common to find luxury hotels on Elba Island that season after season are filled by Italians and foreign visitors wanting a more off-the-beaten-track summer destination.

Renowned since Romans times, the therapeutic muds at the thermal spa of San Giovanni are the perfect complement to the already wide variety offered by this oasis.
