Harbour / Marina
“Arriving by car, from the descent that leads into the village, you can already admire a beautiful view of Porto Santo Stefano. The first thing you will encounter will be the shipyard, where the shipwrights give new life to authentic jewels of the sea. At this point, especially in high season, we advise you to leave your car in the parking lots and then continue on foot. Along the sea you will cross the whole of the port of the valley with the embarkations for the islands of Giglio and Giannutri, several boats and a fleet of fishing boats; if you arrive in the afternoon you may happen to witness the landing of fresh fish. At the end of the port, the splendid Navigatori Promenade begins, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, which leads you to the small port of Pilarella. However, before continuing, you can cross the street and visit the Aquarium, where the typical Mediterranean marine environment is reproduced. Back to the Lungomare, where the numerous benches facing the sea will allow you to take a break enjoying the spectacle of the Argentario Gulf that "looks" towards Talamone. At the end of the promenade you will arrive in Piazza dei Rioni which, facing the small harbor, we can call the "living room" of Porto Santo Stefano. A stop in the numerous bars and restaurants with a terrace overlooking the sea is a must, at any time of day, from breakfast to dinner, at night, the relaxing atmosphere of this place gives you some really pleasant moments. In summer you will also enjoy watching the local children who dive repeatedly into the waters of this small port. Climb up through the picturesque alleys and stairways of the historic center to reach the Spanish Fortress. Situated in a dominant position over the town, it was built to control the port in the 17th century during the Spanish rule. The building is in perfect condition, houses the permanent exhibitions "Memories Submerged and Masters of Ax" and from its terraces you can admire a panorama of extraordinary beauty. The climb is not long but definitely steep, so we advise you not to tackle it during the hottest hours of the day or if you have problems walking. ”
