Lonely Planet review for Villa dei Mulini
The Villa dei Mulini, Napoleon’s home while he was emperor of this small isle, has a splendid terraced garden and library. During his Elban exile, he certainly didn’t want for creature comforts – contrast his Elba lifestyle with the simplicity of his camp bed and travelling trunk when he was on the campaign trail. While the history lesson is nice, the dearth of actual Napoleonic artefacts is a tad disappointing.
