The Napoleonic Passport

The Napoleonic passport is a game that takes you on a discovery of Napoleonic places and the beauty of the Island of Elba. Remember to stamp your passport.

You will receive the stamps at the entrance to the museums or at the information offices indicated. For the Monserrato Sanctuary, the Marciana Marina Tower and the Paolina beach, you will get your stamp by presenting a selfie taken on site.

At the end of your holiday, you will be able to collect your Napoleonic Certificate of Participation, even without having obtained all the stamps, at the Info Point in Portoferraio (Via Vittorio Emanuele II) or at the Info Park Area (Viale Elba, 2 – Port Area).

For those who complete their passport with all stamps, a ‘Napoleonic gadget’ is also a gift.

Regulations

Follow in the footsteps of the Emperor. Visit the eight Napoleonic sites on the Island of Elba and stamp your passport each time. Once completed, pick up your Napoleonic Certificate at the Info Park Area or at the Gattaia Info Point in Portoferraio (subject to availability).
