The Island of Elba is a tiny paradise of the Tuscan Archipelago. Crystal clear water, golden sand, rocks poking out of the water, cozy coastal towns, delicious local food, and relaxing atmosphere hovering in the air – all this is Elba. It is an oasis of peace for those, who want to run away from the city noise and daily routines. We had the opportunity to experience that thanks to the airline Silver Air Italia.
The most popular way to get to the island are ferries. But this type of transportation requires a lot of time and patience, and the prices are running high year by year. However we can ensure that to reach the Mediterranian paradise now is much easier than ever before, because of the local airline Silver Air Italia which flies to Elba Island all year round from Florence and Pisa in Tuscany region, Milan Linate, and during the tourist season from Lugano (Swiss) too. Thus if you would like to spend a few unforgettable days on the Island of Elba whitout wasting your time – Silver Air Italia is exactly what you are looking for.
The airline was established in 1995, has operated on the Italian territory and can boast many years of successful experience in passengers‘ transportation. The aircraft utilized for Elba connections is a Let 410-UVP-E, bi-turboprop in the version of 16-seater + flight assistance and baggage hold. This aircraft is as a small liner, comfortable and spacious. We have good news for animal lovers as well – Silver Air Italia is the pet friendly airline and therefore your little friend can fly to Elba Island on board of the aircraft with you!
But let‘s come back to our story. After 25 minutes from the departure at Pisa International Airport, we were astonished by the magnificent views of the island from above and then welcomed with a very gentle landing in Marina di Campo, where the Elban airport is located. The check out was very fast and leaved us some extra time to take a cup of good coffee at the new cafe based in the airport (despite the fact that the airport is quite small, the bar and the souvenir/duty free shop are here).
Once on the island, you can book a pick up at the airport or rent a car at Elba by Car. We have chosen the second one. The company provides its clients with the best car rental offers on the Island of Elba. Moreover, to keep the balance between the unspoiled nature of the island and the man, Elba by Car offers not only traditional cars and scooters, but electric cars, MTB and e-bikes as well.
