  • Official residence of Napoleon during his exile on Elba. Set in a panoramic position in the upper part of Portoferraio is a pleasant walk along the picturesque streets of Central Elba. The visit takes you along many rooms on two floors. Some locals are really very beautiful and with memorabilia and furniture. Personally my favorite room was the library, with a portion of volumes owned by the emperor. Very nice also the main hall. From all the rooms on the second floor you will enjoy the great views to the sea or towards the center of Portoferraio. Nice, although not very accurate, the small garden with nice walkways overlooking the sea. Exactly as Villa San Martino, also here are missing the basics that every Museum should have. No audio guides, shops, bars, tour guides and explanations to the bone, not to mention the bad external toilet. Here too the foreign crowd is plentiful, but this is not a suitable place to welcome foreigners (saw the lack of audio guides/guides). Too bad. Recommended the joint ticket with villa San Martino.

  • History buff of the nineteenth century, this villa of Napoleon I felt I had to see it. The ticket price was €4 for university students and even included a visit to the other villa di San Martino. The visit is to see mainly 2 floors of the villa where Napoleon lived and you may notice the luxury that sported during his short stay in this island. Various locals loved and equally the garden with a fantastic view. I recommend everyone visiting this residence, especially to those who are fond of history.

  • Mansion; good located, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the sea. Beautiful rooms in a row... But outside very badly maintained; plants suffering from lack of water, square of lawn or grass fallow, sounds miserable... no explanation on the daily life, the functioning of the House, but a description of each piece of furniture, a bit redundant for my taste. Note; free tour on Sunday (8: 00 - 13: 00)

  • I was expecting a little bit more, but it is still a must see in Elba
  • Restored Museum on the occasion of the arrival of Napoleon on Elba. Spacious halls full of Napoleonic Memorabilia. The main Napoleonic residence in short stay of Napoleon on Elba. Gardens with stunning views of the surrounding sea cliff, part of the Gulf and on the continent. Visit not to be missed for guests on the island of Elba.

  • In this long more than others on the island you can relish the time spent by Napoleon in exile here. Is a cured, although not all clubs are open and visitable. The view is splendid. Worth visiting the surrounding area, the lighthouse and the Medicean walls.

  • Place to visit: the furniture exposed are very beautiful (hits the golden yellow of the bed and sofas of Pauline Bonaparte) and the view from the garden is remarkable ... even with the rain

  • Definitely a nice place to visit if you're on the island of Elba, but first let me advise you a little about the history of Napoleon.
