Surely, somebody told you that Giglio Island is small. Don’t be fooled: the pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea is crossed by 31 trails of varying length and difficulty. Each of them will give you a unique setting: barren hills, woods, fields and vineyards, lighthouses, cliffs overlooking the sea, small coves along the coast.

You should discover all these 31 trails. But time on vacation is usually limited. These are the five most beautiful paths that cross Giglio Island:
