Yachting Land Adventure

History of Napoleon's Exile, Cooking Lesson and Wine Tasting

Start with a walking along the Medicean Darsena with its yachts and typical shops before entering the town center through the Sea Gate of the Medicean Fortresses, built by the Archiduke of Florence, Cosimo de Medici, in 1548 to defend and fortify the town of Portoferraio, once called Cosmopoli after its founder. Along the way, admire the 15th century Palazzo Comunale, where Napoleon resided for a few days during his first exile in 1814. Leaving the main square of Portoferraio we walk towards the House of Napoleon “Villa I Mulini ”, so called because windmills once stood on the site of the villa. A variety of rooms are open to the public including the study, reception hall, the apartment of Napoleon’s sister Pauline, Napoleon’s bedroom, the library. The outside garden is of special interest. From the House of Napoleon, continue along the narrow cobblestone path that leads to the upper part of ton, to enjoy a wine tasting and local delicatessen. It's a magical atmosphere for an Italian cooking lesson.
