Die Routen von Toremar

Toremar is an abbreviation for the full company name “Toscana Regionale Marittima S.p.A.” The company was founded in 1975 as the successor to a predecessor company and was originally part of the state-owned Tirrenia Group. This company handles the connections to the islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea on behalf of the state and is thus the successor to the former state postal ship services.

Today Toremar provides the connection to the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, which lie between the Italian west coast and the island of Sardinia in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The largest and best known of these islands (and thus Toremar’s main area of operation) is Elba, while the company’s other destinations include the smaller islands of Pianosa, Gorgona, Giannutri, Giglio and Capraia.

Toremar’s main port of departure is Piombino, from where it calls at the three ports of Portoferraio, Rio Marina and Cavo on Elba. Some of the ships continue from Elba to the smaller neighbouring island of Pianosa. From Livorno there are connections to the islands of Gorgona and Capraia, and from Porto Santo Stefano Toremar sails to Giglio and Giannutri. This gives a total of eight sailing routes, lasting between 15 minutes and 2 hours and 50 minutes. The frequency of the trips also varies considerably: while the main route from Piombino to Portoferraio on Elba offers up to eleven crossings a day, the island of Pianosa is only served once a week. Most routes are served several times a day.

Toremar has a fleet of eight vessels; seven of them are conventional ferries of medium size with capacities ranging from 500 to 900 passengers. Facilities are limited to a cafeteria; some of the larger vessels also have sundecks and play facilities for children. On the main route to Elba, the company’s only fast ferry is used, the “Schiopparello Jet”, which is a passenger-only ferry capable of carrying up to 145 people.
