The Tuscan Archipelago is a stunning chain of islands off the west coast of Italy, known for their crystal-clear waters, rich marine life, and breathtaking landscapes.

Fascinating landscapes and beaches

The seven islands of the Tuscan archipelago extend off the coasts of Livorno and Grosseto in the south of the region. The largest and best-known of the islands is Elba with an area of 223 km². It belongs together with the islands of Gorgona, Capraia, Pianosa and Montecristo to the province of Livorno. The islands of Giglio and the former island of Monte Argentario, connected to the mainland, belong to the province of Grosseto.

The beautiful islands with their unspoilt landscapes with strongly smelling and blooming Mediterranean scrub, steep coastal rocks with small hidden sandy bays and crystal clear water know to inspire! They are protected and were declared the “Parco Nazionale dell’Archipelago Toscano” in 1991. It is the largest marine reserve in Europe!

The islands of Elba and Giglio

The 147 kilometres of coastline on the island of Elba offer everything the holidaymaker’s heart desires, from long fine sandy beaches to lonely romantic bays amidst striking rocks! Despite the 2 million tourists a year, the island has retained its naturalness! The tour operators were very keen to integrate the hotels into nature. The 1,019 m high Monte Capanne dominates the landscape of the island. You can reach the mountain by cable car and enjoy a wonderful view from there.

The island of Giglio is for many the most beautiful island of the archipelago! The granite rocks of the 500m high Poggio della Pagana are covered with lush Mediterranean scrub all year round. With only 1,500 inhabitants and a clear number of tourists you can relax and forget the daily routine. The picturesque village of Giglio Porto, with its colourfully painted houses, is the point of arrival on the island. From here you can take a bus to Giglio Castello and Giglio Campese with their beautiful sandy bay.

The islands of Capraia and Pianosa can be reached from Elba. Giannutri can be reached from Porto Santo Stefano on the Monte Argentario or Giglio peninsula. A visit to the island of Montecristo must be requested for nature conservation reasons and is limited to a few visitors per year. The island of Gorgona is a prison island and can only be visited by appointment and with supervision.
