Originally, the first nucleus of the port was built in Roman times. Then, with the passage of time, Giglio Porto became above all a picturesque fishing village.
In modern times, as the island of Giglio became more and more a popular tourist destination, the function of the port changed radically, passing from commercial stopover to tourist landing.
The tourist influx for such a small island is remarkable but, like any island in the Tuscan archipelago, also at Giglio the port area has managed to maintain its typical beauty. In fact, starting from here you can discover the tower of the Saracen, built at the end of the sixteenth century, and the cove of the Saracen, always very frequented. You can also admire the arrival of the ferry from the walls of the Roman villa and its ancient eel farm.
