After about 1,5 Km , you will find on your right a “Coop supermarket”, keep straight on for about 200 mt, then please pay attention on your left you 'll find the entrance with the parking of the Hotel Etrusco.

From Portoferraio

If you choose Portoferraio, as harbour destination from Piombino, in this case You will take about 20 minutes to reach the Etrusco hotel.
Exit from the harbour and follow the sign “all the directions” taking a road with 4 gangways, then turn on the left for Porto Azzurro direction, and take a boulevard with planted tress ( San Giovanni site).
Cross the slope of Le Grotte, and after a meandering way, pay attention to a junction: here you can choose 2 different way to reach Rio marina:


    at this junction, turn left and follow the direction for Magazzini, and after about 3,5 Km turn right for Volterraio, a meandering road, but with beautiful panorama; at the end of this road there’s a cross-road and follow the direction for Rio Marina, after 400 mt. on your right you will find the enter of the Etrusco Hotel. From Portoferraio to Rio Marina you take 25 minutes by car, the harbour is 26 Km far from the hotel.


    At this junction, don’t turn, go all straight on, until Porto Azzurro. Cross the village, taking always the main road, after about 12 Km there’s the cross-road with the direction for Rio Marina. After about 400 mt. on your right you will find the enter of the Etrusco Hotel.
    Choosing this second way, you will take about 30 minutes by car.

Surely the first route is very beautiful from the panoramic point of view but not particularly suited to those who suffer the altitude or those who simply are not accustomed to such roads! So better to go straight for Porto Azzurro!
