The island of Elba is part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park and is Italy's third largest island. It's famous as being the place where Napoleon lived while in exile and you can see his former residence on the island. There are several picturesque villages and many good beaches along the coast. Elba is easily reached by ferry from Piombino (see Tuscany map). To spend the night, check these top Elba Island hotels.
