Isola del GiglioItaly

Visit various beaches scattered around this island. Stroll along the enchanting passages and hills of its villages.

Roman vestiges are scattered among the pristine beaches and quaint port of Isola del Giglio. Most of the island is covered in forests, alongside charming sections developed for vacationers. Enjoy the slower pace of life as you peruse the boutiques and cafés hidden in the quaint alleys and streets.

Upon arrival, note the hints of the old Roman harbor at Giglio Port on the island’s eastern coast. Appreciate the quaint setting, with colorful houses scattered around the port. Visit the remains of the Roman villa of Domitius Ahenobarbus. Gaze up at the two lighthouses and the Saracen Tower. Go shopping and stay into the night, when bars and restaurants become most active.

Northwest of the port is the village of Giglio Castello, surrounded by medieval defense walls. Marvel at the views of the sea and green hills from the San Pietro Apostolo Church, which contains a 16th-century ivory crucifix among other intriguing historical objects.

Continue west to the coast and find a picnic spot near the roar of the sea in Campese Beach. Although it is considered the newer part of the island, it is home to the 16th-century Campese Tower. Watch the spellbinding sunset over the horizon as the sky turns red. Dive in the warm, clear sea with one of the island scuba operators.

The island is off Italy’s western coast, between the mainland and Corsica. A part of the Tuscan Archipelago, the islet lies within the Arcipelago Toscano National Park. Strict rules dictate limited vehicles on the island, so it is wise to ride a passenger ferry from Porto Santo Stefano in Monte Argentario. Fly to Pisa International Airport and take a bus to reach the port city.

The area has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. Isola del Giglio offers scenic views of hilly forests and a sparkling sea to complement its historic port and beaches.
