Seven sisters that form a sort of crown off the coast of Tuscany. Seven isles that should be visited, every one for a different reason. So, do you want to know what are the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago and find a great idea for your next holidays?
- Elba Island. It’s the biggest of the Archipelago. And it’s also the one where there are more things to do and see. From beaches to cities, from excursions to events, Elba is an island for every taste. It depends just on the kind of holiday you want to spend.
- Giglio Island. It’s the perfect destination for the ones who want to spend a relaxing holiday with excursions in the nature. Giglio Island is just apparently small: once you arrive, you’ll see that the nature of this island is like a continue surprise.
- Capraria Island. Beaches in Capraria are the main places of this destination, but not the only. Capraria is great for the ones who want to keep away the chaos of everyday. Or it can be a perfect occasion for an excursion.
- Montecristo Island. If you want to visit Montecristo you’ll need a special permission issued by Corpo forestale di Follonica. Once you obtain that, just boat which are known by the Corpo forestale di Follonica can reach the isand. Montecristo is recommended for an excursion in an uncontaminated place, which is also wild and legendary.
- Pianosa Island. Another island of the archipelago that could be seen during a one-day excursion. Also in this case, it’s a destination which is far away from the modernity and the everyday stress. Between the principal things to see there are Forte Teglia, Palazzo della Specola, the catacombs.
- Gorgona Island. It’s the littlest and most northerly between the 7 sisters. It’s a little pearl with an inestimable naturalistic importance. You can reach it by doing one day excursions that start from Portoferraio, one the northern coast of Elba island.
- Giannutri Island. It’s the most southerly isle of the Tuscan Archipelago. A place that combines the beauty of the uncontaminated beaches and the fascination of the ancient Roman villas.
