Until Napoleon arrived, Emperor of the island, who here was able to take a break from his wars and regain strength, fascinated by the sweet landscape and unspoiled nature. He had the villa Mulini in Portoferraio restored, together with the one in San Martino and, thinking about his sister Paolina, also the Teatro dei Vigilanti, besides many gardens embellished with citrus groves and exotic plants. However, the Napoleonic legacy also includes schools, new crops and civic and administrative organisation.
Visiting Elba Island is an unforgettable experience with its beautiful itineraries, such as the historical, cultural, naturalistic, sporting and food and wine ones, that will make you discover the most hidden and evocative places and will lead you to dive into the colours and flavours of the largest island in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park.
Sea, sun and nature will be the main ingredients for this holiday, together with excellent food. The local cuisine is simple and genuine: its typical dishes combine the flavours of the sea with those of the land. The eastern part of the island is famous for its desserts, while wines of excellent quality can be found all over the island in various types, however, you can not leave without having tasted the sweet nectar coming from the well dried Aleatico grapes.
