To all, sooner or later, it happens to hear about Giglio Island. Especially from those who were there, who saw its beaches, admired its landscapes and visited its locations. But not everyone knows (or have very clear in mind) where is Giglio Island in Italy. A very common doubt indeed.
Tuscan Archipelago – Giglio Island is part of this archipelago, whose islands lie as a kind of necklace around the coast of Tuscany (talking about necklace, do you know the legend about Venus?). In particular Giglio Island is almost the southernmost island of the archipelago and is located just off the Argentario.
Why take a vacation – Giglio Island is an ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a holiday dedicated to relaxation, fresh air and good food: its beaches are small and pristine, the island’s towns seem to be perfectly bonded with the surrounding Mediterranean’s nature and Giglio can boast an ancient and tasty culinary tradition.
Getting there – Now that we know where Giglio Island is located in Italy and what are the many reasons to visit it, let’s see how to get there. The best way to is one: book a trip on one of the ferries setting out from Porto Santo Stefano, on Argentario (to arrive at Porto Santo Stefano you can choose between car, plane or train).
