Illustrated travel map of the island of Giglio, Tuscany

The island of Giglio is the second largest island in the Tuscan archipelago after Elba and spreads over an area of about 21 sq km, for a length of 8.3 km and a width of 4.7 km. Its ridge reaches its maximum point in Poggio della Pagana at 498 meters above sea level.

There are about 22 kilometers of roads connecting the three villages of Giglio Porto, Giglio Castello and Giglio Campese, and the southern tip of the island. They are almost totally surrounded by natural spaces, pine forests and vineyards, glimpses overlooking the sea and offer an amazing panoramic view of the sea and the Tuscan Archipelago along the entire route.

A still uncontaminated and wild territory invites you to venture along the many trekking paths and discover an island far from the tourist flows immersed in the scents of the Mediterranean maquis.

Giglio’s coastline is 28 km long and sandy beaches alternate with small coves and impressive cliffs where cristal clear waters invite for a swim. As of its small size, the isle can be circumnavigated in a few hours.
