Ferries to Capraia Island

Capraia is the north-westernmost of the seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, the third largest after Elba and Giglio, with a population of roughly only 400 people.

Capraia is about 40 miles from the city of Livorno by sea and can be reached by ferry on a daily basis. Ferries dock at Porto di Capraia, the island’s only port, connected to the village by the only asphalted road you’ll find on the island.

The rest of the island is connected not by road, but by pathways and taxi boat services. You can also join a tour group of six to twelve people, which is a great way to see the island’s scenic coastline and hidden beaches. These tours start in the morning, at noon, in the early afternoon and at the end of the day, normally lasting from two to four hours.

As well as being famous for its wine, anchovies and natural beauty there are also quite a few other attractions worth taking a look at while you’re there. One of the island’s most popular walks takes you through the ruined buildings and agricultural complexes that were part of the Capraia’s penal colony in times gone by. Other walks will take you past the ancient ruined church of Santo Stefano, not far from the La Piana vineyards.

Capraia Island’s village is overseen by the Fortress of St. George, although sadly this is under private ownership and is not open to tourists.

Capraia Island reviews

  • "Good service"

    We booked a return trip to Elba from Piombino with Tremor. The handling at the ports was efficient and stress free. The trip was only an hour but the ship had all the amenities needed. We turned up early for the return ferry and we're offered the chance to take the service that was about to leave (notwithstanding what it says on their website). Very good service.

    We arrived much earlier than we expected but were able to board the boat without any problem. The boats were punctual, clean, the food was good and there were some great facilities to the kids. our trip went very well.

  • "Generally very good"

    It was a bit confusing getting on and off the ferry as there was no one checking our paperwork at either end or telling us where to go. Other than that the ferry was clean, the staff were friendly and the journey was calm and incident free. There is a bit of a strange system for buying food, you have to order at one desk and then go to the counter to collect you food, basically having to line up twice. Everything else was fine.
