During the summer season car ferries leave from Piombino to Portoferraio - the main town on the Island of Elba - almost every hour. There are also daily ferries from Cavo and Rio Marina.
The shipping companies are Toremar, Moby Lines, Corsica Ferries and Blu Navy. The crossing from Piombino to Portoferraio takes one hour (40 minutes by Corsica Ferries), the crossing from Piombino to Cavo takes 35 minutes, and to Rio Marina it takes 45 minutes.
A hydrofoil service (no cars), which arrives only in Portoferraio and Cavo, takes 35 minutes.
Gavila's Residence offers its guests the online purchase of the ferry ticket with the Toremar or Moby Lines companies with a 20% discount and without paying the booking fees, through the website's booking system. Once the booking is confirmed, you will receive a discount code to be entered in the ferry form.
