Cruise to an island of Napoleonic treasures

Elba is undoubtedly best known for its connection with Napoleon, as the site of his first exile. He was sent with a personal escort of 1,000 men, a household staff, and the insulting title of Emperor of Elba. Ten months later he escaped with his tiny army and returned to France.

He probably longed for the clear blue sea, leafy green countryside, and chestnut forests of Elba when after Waterloo he was exiled to St. Helena, a barren island in the south Atlantic. The numerous treasures he left behind can be viewed in the villa of San Martino and the Demidoff Museum.

The fortress takes the form of a series of bastions and keeps, each one contained within the next, and each a little higher than the last. As you explore, you are climbing from one fortified plateau to another, for an incredible view of the town and sea.
