Getting Around Giglio Island

The island of Giglio has only about 22 kilometers of roads connecting the three villages: From Porto you climb up to Castello (400 metres of altitude) and just before you go down to Campese beach. There is also a road from Castello which almost reaches the southernmost point of the island.

Winding, they pass through the typical landscape of the island, the macchia, interrupted only by granite rocks, pine forests and vineyards. Along the entire route you can enjoy beautiful views of the coast and the Tuscan Archipelago.

There is a bus service on the island that connects regularly the three villages. You will also find taxis and scooter, bike and car rentals. Alternatively you can also move "via mare" using the water-taxi service.

Own car

If you bring your own car to the island, we recommend that you book the place on the ferry in advance, especially on weekends, public holidays or during the months of July and August.

If you arrive with a vehicle with an Italian license plate in August, you must obtain an Autocertificazione (self-certificate that you stay more than 5 days on Giglio): PDF Autocertifcazione »
