There are several ways to get to Elba:
This is the fastest and most convenient way to arrive on the island. Elba has its own small airport, which is located in the village of La Pila, 2 km from Marina di Campo. It is a private civilian airport open to commercial traffic.
During the summer, the airport becomes very busy, with foreign and Italian airlines regularly flying here from many major European cities.
The land method implies two parts of the route, the first part of the route goes over land and should lead you to the port of Piombino, the second part – by sea to the main port and the capital of the island of Elba – Portoferraio.
Four shipping companies fly to Elba from the port of Piombino Marittima several times a day: Toremar, Moby Lines, Blu Navy and Corsica Ferries. Comfortable ferries start running from 6:00 to approximately 21:30 in the evening. The cost of the trip for all is approximately the same 14 euros.
The crossing time to Portoferraio is approximately 1 hour 10 minutes, to Rio Marina 45 minutes.
Ferry tickets can be purchased at the ferry terminal, which is located to the right of the exit from the train, or booked in advance on the website of the shipping company.
If you are traveling by car, we recommend booking ferry tickets in advance.
