Approximately 35,000 people call Elba home. With Italian as its lingua franca, the Island of Elba thrives in the geographical area of Tuscany, Italy. After Sicily and Sardinia, Elba is Italy’s third largest Island, situated just 20 miles from the coastal town of Piombino. Within Elba Island lays San Martino, Napoleon’s summer residence, which has of course been transformed into a tourist attraction. As a result, you will see the letter ‘N’ embroidered everywhere. Napoleon’s death mask can be inspected at Chisea della Misericordia. Also prominent among the Elba people and the history of Elba are Alexander Dumas and Victor Hugo. A place certainly worth visiting in Elba is the Museo Archeologico, where the Island’s treasures are on display.
