Gorgona Island

The Island of Gorgona is the smallest of the Toscano Archipelago. Mountainous and rich in typical vegetation of the Mediterranean bush, it is also seat of a penal colony, realized in 1869, as a section of the one of Pianosa. But its center is the town of fishermen, where today live approximately 50 people. The visit of the island is allowed every tuesday in the summer, for small groups; the first thing visitors see is the green: approximately 90% of the island, indeed, are covered by the Mediterranean bushes and woods. The sea of the island is forbidden to navigation; therefore the small presence of men allowed the water to be clear and blue. Walking along the coast, you camn see evocative bays and creeks, like the Costa dei Gabbiani or the Cala Scirocco, where there is the cave of the Bue Marino, shelter for the seals. On the island there is Villa Margherita, built on the ruins of ancient Etruscan and Roman settlements.
