Elba Island is an island located in the province of Livorno, Italy.
In addition, it is of volcanic origin and is the largest island of the entire Tuscan archipelago. It is divided into 8 different municipalities and its capital is known as Portoferraio.
With regard to its location, this island is situated in a perfect location as it is only 50 kilometers away from Corsica and you can also visit in one day the surrounding islands by ferry connections as the distance is relatively short.
Its capital, Portoferraio, receives this name because it was a key site for the export of iron during the sixteenth century. It is also a city surrounded by two very touristic fortresses: Forte Stella, where you can find the house where Napoleon stayed during the winter and Forte Falcone, located at the highest point of the island for you to have the opportunity to enjoy the incredible panoramic views.
