|Isola del Giglio|
The island, situated in the centre of the Tyrrhenian Sea, hides in its interior a ‘hidden treasure’. The tourists, thanks to its mild climate, are able to enjoy a holiday full of surprises during any season, at close contact with pure and unspoiled nature, which is not easy to come by elsewhere.
A crystal clear sea, which is of an emerald green shade and teeming with underwater life and, surrounds a land, of which a high percentage is still wild (90%). The island is almost totally constituted by granite, with the exception of the promontory of Franco, which is characterized by limestone and Palaeozoic quartzite. It is also almost totally mountainous, with a maximum peak, the Poggio della Pagana, measuring 496m, little more then 1500 feet. From the top, particularly during clear weather, a spectacular panorama can be seen.. Possibly, the most interesting feature of the island is the variety of its 28 kilometres of coastline, which alternates cliffs of smooth granite, with coves, bays and sandy beaches, and that always allow the excursionists the chance of finding a sheltered place.
