Reaching the Giglio Island is very simple and convenient: two shipping companies, with departures every day from Porto Santo Stefano, in Monte Argentario, connect it with the mainland from 6.00 am to 8.00 pm.
The duration of the crossing is quite short and you get to Giglio Porto, the only port of the island, after about an hour of navigation. For those who want to bring the car in tow it is advisable to book on time, especially on weekends, during the holidays or in the summer months. Once you arrive at Giglio Island you can enjoy the typical Mediterranean climate, with a rather long summer season, not very hot but dry that precedes, or follows, the short winter season with a slightly humid climate and with few rains.
