About Rio Marina
Rio Marina, on the East coast of Elba, is a lively, seaside town with restaurants, shops and a picturesque marina. Rio Marina has good links with the Italian mainland, with 2 to 3 ferries a day taking a journey of approximately 30 minutes. The port town is charming, with excellent views of the sea and quaint narrow streets that entice the visitor in to explore.
The ancients knew Elba as Iva because of its rich iron resources, making it an important port for navigation and trade. The Greeks later named it Aethalia (fume), referring to all the smoke given out by the iron refining furnaces. As a result, it today boasts many rich architectural remains such as prehistoric villages and ancient granite quarries. The best way to see the island and its rich cultural treasures is by foot, as it features a good network of mapped hiking routes.
