The Island of Elba is a wonderful land, which offers unforgettable emotions to those who have the opportunity to visit it. This real pearl of the Mediterranean is just 10 km from the mainland and can be reached easily in about an hour.
Ferries to the Island of Elba leave from the port of Piombino, the main tourist port of the Tuscan coast, about 40 minutes from Fattoria Palazzeta. The ferry service is available all year round and is guaranteed by several shipping companies: Navy Blue, Elba Ferries, Moby and Toremar.
From the port of Piombino it is possible to disembark at Portoferraio, Rio Marina and Cavo, three locations located on the east coast of the island. Those who wish to continue sailing to the smaller islands of Pianosa, Giglio and Giannutri can do so by using smaller ferries assigned to the service.
There are frequent connections throughout the year and not just in the summer. Elba is in fact an ideal destination in every season because in addition to beautiful beaches and coastline offers many alternatives.
