GETTING TO THE HOTEL
BY CAR FROM THE PORT OF PORTOFERRAIO (about 36 km from Colle d'Orano) :
VIA MARINA DI CAMPO
From the port follow indications for Procchio. Once in Procchio turn left at the petrol station and follow directions to Marina di Campo/Fetovaia/Chiessi. On arrival in Marina di Campo head for Fetovaia, Pomonte and Chiessi. About 3km after Chiessi, you arrive in Colle d'Orano and you will find the entrance to the hotel on your right.
VIA MARCIANA MARINA
from the port follow indications for Procchio. Once in Procchio head straight on to Marciana Marina. Follow indications for Marciana, Zanca, Patresi. 200m after the square of Colle d'Orano, on your left you will see the car park of the hotel. There is a second car park nearest the reception entrance, just follow the signs of the hotel. Both roads are more or less of the same length. We suggest you take the one via Marina di Campo/Fetovaia for a easier ride with fewer bends. The journey through Marciana Marina has more hills and turns, but the ride is as much panoramic and beautiful as the one via Marina di Campo.
IN AUTOBUS O TAXI
Near the port of Portoferraio is the taxi station (tel 0565 915 112) and CTT Bus station (toll free 800 317 709) that provide connection over the island. In the summer, from June to September there is a bus every hour to and from Portoferraio that travel throughout the western ring; ideal for those who want to leave the car at the hotel and get to the beaches by bus! The CCT Bus stop Hotel Villa Rita - Colle d'Orano - Line 116 is directly in front of the etrance to our hotel.You can buy single tickets, return or season tickets at the hotel.
Elba can be easily reached taking a ferry from Piombino Marittima on the Italian mainland, where there are four ferry companies (Blu Navy, Toremar, Moby and Corsica Ferries). All of them have comfortable ferries that go back and forth all day long. In just one hour you will be on Elba (it is about a 10km sea crossing) to Portoferraio (Elba’s main port) or Cavo or Rio Marina (on the east coast of the island). There is also a fast connection by hydrofoil for passenger transport only, which in just 20 minutes reaches Cavo, a village near of Rio Marina, then continuing to Portoferraio with another 15 minutes of navigation.
