What is Elba famous for? Napoleon exile of course
We almost forget to mention one of the most used reason why people chose Elba — because it was Napoleon’s home for something like 10 months. Yep, the commander in chief , “Le Petit Caporal”, has been here. Actually he was forced to live here and he left two stunning villas. One for winter and the other one for his summer “siestas”.
