MINICRUISE GIGLIO AND GIANNUTRI ISLANDS

Depart at 9:45 AM from Porto Santo Stefano to discover two of the pearls of the Tuscan archipelago, the islands of Giglio and Giannutri. Explore a place ideal for marine lovers and divers alike. Don’t miss the visit to the village of Giglio Castello, ranked among the most beautiful villages in Italy. See Giannutri, a small paradise with no cars or roads and no major tourism structures, in fact still dominated by the low Mediterranean scrub with its colors and scents. Villa Domizia was built in the first half of the second century A.D. by the Enobarbi, the imperial family that owned Giannutri. They spared no expense to build this residence with a breath-taking view of the coast. Then visit Giglio island, characterized by its mainly granitic ground and by the typical Mediterranean vegetation, in part formed by man with terracing to allow cultivation of vines and olive trees. The coast, high and steep, is also generally jagged and interspersed with many rocks and a few bays. On the east side, see the coves of Porto, of Arenella and Cannelle, to the west see the long and wide beach of Campese. Enjoy a full meal of fish comfortably seated inside an eco-friendly cruise boat before you return at 6:30 PM.
