How to get around on the island of Giglio​

Buses, Taxis, Car - Scooter - Bike and Boat Rentals on Giglio Island

The island of Giglio offers about 22 kilometers of roads that connect the three main towns and the southern tip of the island. They are almost totally surrounded by natural spaces, pine forests and vineyards, overlooking the sea and offer a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea and the Tuscan Archipelago along the entire route.

On the island there is a bus service that regularly connects the three countries. There are ncc taxi services, car, scooter and bike rentals and alternatively you can also move by sea by renting a boat or taxi-boat service.

For those who want to bring the car to the island it is absolutely recommended to book the ferry before, especially if you arrive or leave on the weekend, during a holiday or in the period of July and August. Remember that in August you need a self-certification for the circulation of your vehicle at the Giglio if you have an italian number plate.

A petrol station is located in Giglio Porto and on the road to Giglio Castello at the junction with the Arenella.
