Embark or land cars and passengers at the port of Rio Marina
The embarkation for Piombino is at the end of a pier about one hundred meters long. The lane that arrives there can only accommodate two rows of machines, for this reason the space of manoeuvre is rather narrow. It is advisable to show up in advance and take a seat in line to not wait too long.
In principle we always recommend to arrive at least 2 hours before if you have to embark a vehicle, while if you are on foot you can get 1 hour earlier than the scheduled time.
Only the driver can drive inside the ship’s garage and, as well as for the landing manoeuvres, must always follow the instructions of the Board staff.

The history of the port
The port of Rio Marina is the second by order of importance, after Portoferraio. It owes its construction to the mining of the eastern Elba: it was the ideal point for the loading of the material extracted from the nearby mines of the municipalities of Rio and Rio Marina, on the ships of transport. Over the years the wooden loading jetties have left room for iron loading jetties and a marquee dam to protect, lengthened several times.
With the decrease and progressively the end of the extractive activities, there was the consequent abandonment, as well as the removal, of part of the loading port equipments. However, the marquee part of the port has been extended and reinforced in the years, so you can accommodate the Toremar ferries that ensure the connection on the Piombino-Rio Marina.
