Passage of the alps e.g. from Germany:




On Elba

The field station Centro Marino Elba is situated in the village of Fetovaia at the southwestern part of Elba.
You can reach the station from Portoferraio, the ferry port of Elba by car via Procchio, Marina di Campo and Seccheto.

Arriving in Fetovaia please turn right at the first possibility about 100 meters after the "Fetovaia" sign. The small road (Via del Forno) leads very steeply uphill and brings you directly to the building of the station (the first white villa at your right side).
Fetovaia can be reached from Portoferraio and Marina di Campo by public service busses as well. The 116 bus serves the route several times a day for a reasonable price. You can check the timetables as for business days and saturdays (Feriale) and sundays (Festivo) here.
