  • 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)

  • Pros: well maintained building, concerned especially the library and study of Napoleon. You don't expect a palace but the view is spectacular: the grounds should be kept much better. A shame

  • This is the place that most represents the short passage of Napoleon to Elba. Enriched, lately, of furnishings and prints is a must for anyone visiting this island.
