Elba is the biggest island of the Tuscan Archipelago and the third largest in Italy after Sardinia and Sicily. Famous around the world for harboring French Emperor Napoleon in 1814 during his exile, the island's history goes back to prehistory, with the Ilvati tribe from Liguria who named the island Ilva. It was inhabited by the Etruscans who started viticulture there, and later by the Romans.
