Ferries to the Isle of Elba: sailing and travel options
The length of the route forces the shipping companies to employ small ferries, which do not provide cabin accommodation. Passengers can book the deck accommodation, which is to say not having reserved a specific seat on board, but the possibility to sit anywhere in the economy lounge of the ferry: air seats, salon or around coffee tables. Passengers may walk both on the deck as well as around the vessel. Every 30 minutes a ferry runs, and it needs about 1 hour to reach the Isle of Elba. In case the passengers have chosen to travel by hydrofoil (which cannot carry vehicles) or by a fast ferry, he or she will get to the island in just 30 minutes!
Ferries carry both passengers and vehicles, and offer free access to the public areas and on-board services, just like bar-cafeteria, tv room and playing areas for the children. Moreover, all passengers can enjoy the landscape, sat on the benches available on the weather deck.
