Giglio Island

A romantic little island off the coast of Tuscany, offering nature trails, three charming fishing towns, and pleasant solitude.

Isola del Giglio is an Italian island and commune situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of Tuscany. The island is one of seven that form the Tuscan Archipelago, lying within the Arcipelago Toscano National Park. The island is separated by a 16 kilometer (10 mi) stretch of sea from the nearest point of the mainland, the promontory of Monte Argentario.
