Elba (Portoferraio), Italy
Elba is the third largest island in Italy and an international tourist destination. Yet, its natural beauty has remained unspoiled, from crystal clear aquamarine waters and pristine white-sand beaches, to scenic woodlands, desert plains and mountainous regions.
Hub to this island's transportation system, it's also where Victor Hugo lived as a boy, and where Napoleon spent his exile. The old town is full of character, lined with cafés, stepped alleyways and old churches.
Villa dei Mulini
This 17th-century villa is where the exiled Napoleon resided. It's situated on the highest point of the old quarter with an excellent vantage point of the bay. Inside, there remains the emperor's library and other pieces from the period.
This picturesque little tree-shaded piazza is perched above the old port and affords romantic views as well as a café.
