Nice island with a fort on the top. Great view, especially the Costa Concordia, located 100m from the beach

Giglio is a very charming island with a lot of sights, good food and things to do, but in this review I will only focus on the possibility for a very nice day on the beach if you want to get away from the overcrowded mainland beaches. Take the ferry from Porto Santo Stefano (Euro 23 return) and hop on... More

Of course I want to say that I came here to view the costa Concordia wreckage. I did. It is horrific. But ht island is charming and I had a nice time collecting sea glass and having lunch. It was a nice ferry ride from Porto S Stefano. We did not ferry our car and wish we did to explore... More

My wife and I took a day trip to visit Giglio Island while in Porto Santo Stefano. It is a very easy ferry ride from the dock in Porto Santo Stefano. Tickets round trip are 20 euros pp and the ferry ride is a beautiful slow ride that last about an hour. The ferry also transports cars if you want... More

Giglio island is a small jewel in the Mediterranean sea. If you take a boat you go round and you find blue sea and wonderful beach. You can eat at Giglio porto or go to visit the oldest part at Giglio castello...Very interesting for scuba divers.

The island of Gigliio is just under an hour by ferry from the fashionalble port of Santo Stefano. It has a tiny harbour and town plus a walled mountain top village Giglio Castello. I went, with some friends for the day and was utterly captivated. Ferries run every couple of hours or so - local travel bureaus have the timings... More
