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.
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 »
The three villages Giglio Porto, Giglio Castello and Campese are well connected with the bus line Giglio Porto-Castello-Campese. The busses stop also at Monticello (for the Arenella beach) and at the camping in Campese. Tickets can be purchased in bars and shops showing the Tiemme sign, at the ticket office in Giglio Porto and on the busses (the latter with surcharge).
Tickets can be bought in the Tiemme ticket office (Via Umberto I, 27, Giglio Porto) or in bars and shops showing the Tiemme sign.

A boat trip to discover the hidden coves and beaches inaccessible from the ground is an experience that should not be missed during a holiday on Giglio island.
