We suggest to choose Pisa International Airport (PSA) for your arrival which is only 1 hour driving time from Piombino Marittima, the harbour where you can take the ferry to Elba.

Train service from Pisa airport to Piombino Marittima is available, but you must change in Pisa Central Station and,  often also in Campiglia Marittima station where you catch a train or a bus to Piombino Marittima. The train ticket is valid also for the bus journey.

Wherever you come from, to reach Piombino Marittima, the harbour where you can take the ferry to Elba, from the SS1 highway, you have to exit at “Venturina/Piombino/Island of Elba” and follow the signs for Piombino Marittima.

Here you can find all the information about your travel and how long it takes.

Once you get to Piombino Marittima you can choose whether to leave your car in a paying guarded car park or take it across to the Island of Elba.
