    Default Advice for Elba - taking the car ferry from Bastia (Corsica)

    We are talking the car ferry from Bastia (Corsica) to Elba for the day. Arrive in Portoferraio 08:30, leave 20:30. Any advice for how to spend the day?

    I love mountains / sea / sightseeing so I had planned to drive from Portoferraio to Marciana Marina -> Marciano, then around the peninsula past Chiessi to Marina del Campo, then on to Capoliveri, Porto Azzurro, Rio Marina, Cavo, Rio nell'Elba and back to Portoferraio. I may have too much here??

    Lunch along the way somewhere, dinner in Portoferriao- any recommendations?

    You might find some helpful information on driving around Elba at this link:

    Do keep in mind that it is a small island and just a few cars can make travelling slow. Plan to be near the port early. Having said that, I would opt for a hearty lunch and then pick up something to eat on your way back in the car or boat. Most restaurants don't open until 7:30 or 8 pm and you will most probably need to be in line for the ferry before that time!

    Buon Viaggio,
