These two islands belonging to the Parco Nazionale dell ‘Arcipelago Toscano are good spots for a day trip near the coast.
The speck of an island Giannutri houses the ancient ruins of a Roman villa dating back to the 1st century AD and an attractive sheltered bay, Cala Spalmatoio, located on the east coast of this 5km-long island.
Giglio is surrounded by crystal-clear waters that attract more and more divers every year. The hilly island situated 14 km from Monte Argentario has several small sandy beaches on the west coast off Giglio Campese, a modern destination that grew from the ancient watchtower.
Accommodation is mainly located near to the port.
