An Italian commune and famous wine producing island, Giglio is the home of ‘Ansonaco’ wine. Located 16km from Tuscany on the Italian mainland, the island is in one of the most beautiful regions of the entire country and it will not disappoint any visitor due to the remarkable natural scenery and the wonderful hospitality of the hosts. Filled with a bounty of glorious natural delights this island will dazzle you regardless of whether or not you prefer to be above or below water, on a beach or in a bar.
An amazing 90% of the island is wildly mountainous with a great variety of flora and fauna to gaze at when on one of the many designated hill walks and the highest peak of the island is Poggio della Pagana at nearly 1500 feet. There are a number of interesting inhabitants on the island such as the Biacco, a harmless snake and a nest of Buzzards which can be spotted further up the mountain trail.
The accommodation and tourist activity is centred around three different villages; Giglio Porto, a charming harbour town, Giglio Castello, a fortified medieval town and Giglio Campese, a tourist resort located next to all of the main beaches of the island. The hotels on the island are located in the harbour and beach areas due to the accessibility from the boats used to get to the island. Apartments are available in the romantic town of Giglio Castello. It is possible to travel to the area via train passing through a very beautiful part of the country.
