Napoleon Bonaparte escaped from Elba Island after eight months of exile, though we imagine he was somewhat remorseful to leave behind such a beautiful place. Elba, located in the Tuscan Archipelago 6 mi/10 km off the Italian mainland, is known for its sandy beaches and shimmering, jewel-toned water.
Portoferraio is the largest town on the island, and its port is considered one of the safest harbors in the world. While on the island, tour Napoleon's summer and winter homes, take a hike or just relax on the beach.
