Montecristo Island

Montecristo is situated south of Elba and west of the Giglio Island and the Argentario. The island is mostly mountainous with rocky protrusions on the sea. In 1971 Montecristo has been declared Natural Reserve; wild island, covered by Mediterranean bush, it constitutes an important place of shelter and rest for the migratory birds. The island has always been deserted and today only two guardians of the lighthouse live there. The conditions, that have forbidden the peopling, favourited the prospering of the flora and the fauna. The island is the most solitary, magnetic, fascinating and wild of Toscano Islands. The prohibitive conditions of life brought to the birth of numerous mysterious legends, about the presence of ghosts on the island or the fact this place was a shelter where the pirates hid their treasures. In order to visit Giglio island, it is necessary to ask a permission to the Corpo Forestale di Follonica; on the island, however, the overnight stay and camping are forbidden, and the visits cannot last more than six hours.
