On holiday at Giglio Porto
What to do during your stay in Giglio Porto? First of all reach the Saraceno cove and enjoy its wonderful sea! Even though the beach is very small, it’s worth it for at least two reasons: transparent water and seabed where you can admire the ancient ruins of the Roman fish market, where the fish was raised.
Furthermore, in the old town, you will be able to admire other pieces of history of the island: the tower of the port, commissioned by Ferdinand I in 1596 in defence of the village from the Saracen raids, the big villa of the I century B.C., close to the Saracen cove. After a day of walking or a day of diving, we recommend you some shopping in the colorful shops of the island, and a dinner based on fresh fish in one of the many restaurants with a sea view
