Piombino Portoferraio Ferry
Piombino is in the famous region of Tuscany, situated between the large ports of Civitavecchia and Livorno; despite this Piombino has always been a busy port, and over the years has specialised in international freight and ferry passenger services, and now the port is used for both industry and tourism.
Piombino has several fantastic places to visit both within the new city area and the old historical centre. These range from the old military building such as the castle Cassero Pisano to religious buildings such as the Cathedral of Saint `Antimo which is in Pisane-Gothic style, and the Chiesa della Misericordia, which houses a precious 15th century crucifix. Pimobino also houses a range of artistic sites such as the Casa delle Bifore, the Palazzo Comunale and the Natural Province Reserve Padule Orti Bottagone.
Portoferraio ferry port is located on the island of Elba in the province of Livorno. Portoferraio ferry port acts as the principal port for the island.
The town of Portoferraio is situated on a spur of rock and overlooked by the Medicean Fortress and is a charming destination with its old buildings with flowering balconies, narrow alleyways and panormaic squares that lead up to the Medicean fortifications. The scenic town is the perfect place to indulge in the local delicacies in one of the many restaurants and cafés.
30 May 2019Easy check in and comfortable ferry
Booking on line was easy although we were slightly worried that we were asked to identify the vehicle - which was a rental and we hadn't picked up yet. However, this was not an issue, we arrived at Piombino slightly early and were invited to board the next available ferry. The ship was clean, catering was okay for a short journey and toilets were clean. The journey is an easy hour and the sea was like a 'mill pond' - very smooth. Would definitely use again.

Booked online, very straight forward. Great directions to the port. Very nice ferry but a touch expensive for a one hour out of season crossing but I suspect that is the Italian Riveria
