If you want to get to the Island of Elba you have to catch the ferry from Piombino Marittima, which you can easily reach by car, by train, or by bus. From here four sailing companies(Toremar, Moby Lines, Blu Navy and Corsica-Sardinia Ferries provide comfortable ferries that during the summer months cross over to and from Portoferraio, Rio Marina and Cavo every day practically all day.
In summer the Cosica-Sardinia Ferries Shipping Company also crosses from Portoferraio to Bastia, which takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
On the Island of Elba there are no none of the petrol stations have LPG or methane gas for cars, and don't forget that when you cross over you must switch off your gas connection as soon as you board the ferry!

Thanks to the booking system you can hire any means of transport so you can get about in absolute freedom: a car, a motorbike, a scooter, or even a bicycle....whatever you prefer and whatever best suits your finances!
