Full description

Discover two of the pearls of the Tuscan archipelago, the islands of Giglio and Giannutri. This mini cruise offers you a thousand shades of blue, traces of history from prehistoric times, and seeing villages full of charm and unique flavors.

The tour starts from the iconic Porto Santo Stefano harbor. From here, reach the first destination of the tour: the Island of Giannutri. The island still preserves the remains of an ancient Roman port near Cala dello Spalmatoio and a Roman dock near Cala Maestra. Admire the steep coasts and the ancient island’s intersection with a crystalline sea. 

Next, see the Island of Giglio. The island is characterized by its mainly granitic ground and by the typical Mediterranean vegetation of vines and olive trees. On the east side, see the coves of Porto, Arenella, and Cannelle, to the west see the long and wide beach of Campese.

If you prefer to get lost in alleys and breathtaking views, you will undoubtedly be fascinated by Giglio Castello. Inserted among the most beautiful villages in Italy, it boasts a wall with cylindrical and rectangular towers.

Before leaving the island, you can visit the artisan shops of Giglio Porto. On the way back, enjoy a full meal onboard, comfortably seated inside the eco-friendly cruise boat. Having seen two wonders of Tuscany your tour ends back at Porto Santo Stefano at 6:30 PM.

This mini-cruise was very nice. The staff and meal provided was excellent. The only reason I cannot give it a 5 star rating is because it was advertised as being offered in English, which is the option that I selected, however, the captain spoke Italian the entire time, so we had no idea what he was saying to his English speaking passengers about the islands, etc. That was very disappointing as I like to have as much information about what I'm seeing as possible. SUGGESTION...if they are not equipped to provide an English speaking Captain and are unable to interpret what they captain is saying they should have a recording that can be played highlighting all of the information the Captain provided in Italian.

First time at Giglio. Organized boat trip. What a horror! Alright'. I don't find anything else. Instead ... captain and friendly sailors, joy on board, education. All organized very well but managed with good-naturedness, lightly. Very pleasant! Excellent and abundant lunch. This is said by someone who eats out often. Giannutri first. Some free time. Dive into the sea if you like. Then Giglio. Even more free time. After lunch. Cala cinnamon twenty minutes on foot. Worth the ticket.

Perfect organization. Possibility to choose a guide for both islands directly on board. Maximum punctuality. Really great lunch (served hot and in record time to everyone). Very kind and very nice staff. Very nice and clean ship. Obviously the two islands are beautiful but it is a given. I absolutely recommend this experience!
