History of Piombino
Piombino is a little city on the west coast of Italy, belonging in the Province of Livorno and opposes the island of Elba in the Tuscan Archipelago. Piombino has a famous port for cargo shipment which has become very popular to tourists as well over the years. It is the main starting point for those who wish to visit Elba from the Italian mainland. Piombino was once conquered by Napoleon Bonaparte who later gave the reign to his sister. Napoleon's sister, Elisa, called Piombino "My Little Paris" due to its romantic breath.
