Giglio Island holidays: what to do in Giglio Porto
What to do during your stay in Giglio Porto?
First of all, reach the Caletta del Saraceno and enjoy its fantastic sea! Although the beach is very small, it is worth it for at least two reasons: crystal clear water and seabed in which to admire the ancient remains of the Roman fishmongers, where fish were raised.
In addition, around the historic center, you will be able to admire other pieces of the island’s history: the Torre del Porto, commissioned by Ferdinand I in 1596 to defend the town from Saracen raids; the large villa dating back to the 1st century BC, annexed to the Caletta del Saraceno.
Finally, after a day of diving or walking, we recommend healthy shopping at the colorful island shops and a fresh fish dinner in one of the many restaurants overlooking the sea.
