But it’s not all about what lies beneath – we’ll also venture inland, exploring Giannutri’s trails all the way to the tips of Capel Rosso or Cala Volo di Notte, as we lose ourselves amidst untouched nature and the intoxicating scent of Mwediterranean scrub.

How to get to Giglio Porto from Campese or Giglio Castello
If you’re nestled in Giglio Campese or perched up in Giglio Castello and looking to venture to Giglio Porto, the journey is straightforward. The Tuscan Bus Lines serve as a reliable chariot, ready to whisk you off to your destination. Jump aboard the Linea ig1A bus, your conduit between Giglio Campese, Giglio Castello, and Giglio Porto.
With the wheels turning about once an hour, you’ll find yourself in Giglio Porto in no time. From there, the Galli Pier is just a stone’s throw away – a leisurely walk and you’re there.
Should you prefer to travel in a bit more comfort, taxis are at your beck and call. A quick phone call, and a taxi will swing by to take you from Giglio Campese or Giglio Castello, right up to the Galli Pier in Giglio Porto.
The fare? That’ll depend on how far you’re going and how many fellow travellers are tagging along.
Whichever way you lean, bus or taxi, a pro-tip is to check the bus timetable or secure your taxi ahead of time. This is particularly true during the summer rush, when the island teems with visitors.
