Isola d' Elba Travel Guide: 90 reviews and 268 photos

Wednesday, 30 May 2007 - day trip to the island of Elba. We departed from our camp site in Bibbona very early (5:30 am ...!), and took the ferry 'Moby Baby' from Piombino to Portoferraio, the capital of Elba.

Flag of Elba, as designed by Napoleon Bonaparte who was given his own tiny kingdom here, or rather went into exile here after his abdication in 1814. I'm a descendant of one of Napoleon's fuseliers (grandfather of my maternal great-greatgrandmother) and someone who has been on the Napoleon Trail since the 1980s - in other words, for several decades now. So it was quite exciting to set foot on Elba.
