Inside Europe: A month celebrating Napoleon on Elba
| 05:40 mins.
Italy’s third biggest island, just off the west coast, is Elba. It’s the island Napoleon chose when he was forced to abdicate as Emperor and go into exile. He arrived in May 1814 and, even though he stayed for less than a year, the people of Elba remember him with great fondness - and a month packed with commemorative events. As they kick off, Dany Mitzman sent us this postcard from the island.
