Napoleon museium houses examples of furnishings and decor of the era. Not sure if they are authentic to his stay there but in beautiful condition and well displayed and the entrance fee of 5 euros each wasn't excessive. The gardens could do with a green...More

We visited Elba on a cruise and were not disappointed. The walk to the Palazzini is fairly steep but takes you through the attractive bye-ways of Portoferraio with its many recently restored buildings. The Palazzini is perched in a spectacular position above the cliffs and...More

The Villa is nice and offers a stroll down the Napoleonic time in Portoferraio, but the best part is the garden. Beautiful view on the sea and lighthouse. Very quiet and peaceful.
