Isola del Giglio: how to get there by embarking on summer cars
The ships are numerous and have a continuous service in summer or late spring, but keep in mind that it is almost mandatory to book to transport the car.
It is absolutely impossible, in high season, to find a free place “by chance”. The waiting lists for those not booked are always very long.
Keep in mind that in the period of August (usually including the first 3 weeks) the transport of vehicles on the island (cars and motorcycles with Italian plates) is governed by a municipal permit which must be shown at the request of the Municipal police of the Isola del Giglio and kept inside the vehicle for the entire period of the stay.
Also during this period, to bring your vehicle to board for the Giglio Island, it will be mandatory to stay on the island for at least 5 days.
