Discover Portoferraio, one of the ports on Elba Island
Portoferraio is the largest town on Elba Island and hosts the main port. Its present-day appearance dates back to 1548, when Cosimo dei Medici fortified it. Later, in 1814, it hosted Napoleon Bonaparte, who made numerous improvements to the internal road system. Its historical centre is, therefore, rich in history and charm. It will be easy to fall in love with this place with its old buildings, its dockyard and its typical restaurants.
