Ferry Lines

Porto Santo Stefano-Isola del Giglio


Our scheduled ferry lines depart from Porto Santo Stefano-Monte Argentario. The ferry service is provided mainly by the M/N Isola del Giglio, a Ro-pax ferry that can carry up to 595 passengers and about 40 vehicles. During the high season, it is joined by the M/V Dianium, a smaller boat equipped to transport both passengers and vehicles. The trip duration varies from 50 to 60 minutes depending on marine weather conditions. The ferry lands at Giglio Porto, one of the three inhabited centers of Giglio Island, the only commercial and tourist port. The service is available year-round.

If you come by bus

From Orbetello or Grosseto, get off at the first stop at the entrance of Porto Santo Stefano in front of the shipyards a short way from the ticket offices and boarding area.

The ferry lands at Giglio Porto, the only commercial port and marina on the island. During the summer, cars are always allowed to be transported except for in mid-August, when this is allowed only for a minimum stay of four nights. In this case, you must download, fill in and bring with you the self-certification form which can be requested by the local police at the time of boarding or landing on the island. The form can be downloaded from our website — download self-certification or from the website of the Municipality of Isola del Giglio. For those who are getting around Giglio Porto on foot, you can also rent scooters, or get to the bus stop for Giglio Castello and Giglio Campese, located in Piazza Giuseppe Rum, about 100 meters from the ferry landing, taking Via Provinciale. The bus ticket costs €2 each way and can be purchased at the bus stop. In Giglio Porto, right before the bus stop on Via Provinciale, there is also a Proloco information office.
