Boat trips to Elba departing from Viareggio?

Have unsuccessfully searched the forums for talk of this and just wondering if there are any?

I've never heard of any frankly. Piombino is the port to go from.

P.S. You might of course find private boats doing day trips. I'd ask the tourist info. people in Viareggio.

Yes I imagined that Viareggio wouldn't be the usual place to get to Elba.

I am just hoping that someone in the Viareggio area can maybe confirm if what you have suggested (private boats offering trips) is true and their rough prices.

Mind you, I've just estimated that Elba is around 65 miles from Viareggio, and I'm not sure but that could be a bit far for small boat trips. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Actually I think Elba is probably best left for another visit to Tuscany.

We're in Northern Tuscany for our honeymoon - perhaps for our anniversary we should check out the south!

There might conceivably be something from Livorno, but I think you are right to leave it for another trip.

A good resort in southern Tuscany is Castiglione della Pescaia and I know for certain that there are day trips to Elba from there. I've been on them myself.

Thank you. We are considering visiting Livorno (depending upon if we have the time) as I've heard there's a festival on whilst we are visiting - I will keep it in mind.

Much obliged for your help.
