Arcipelago Toscano Nacional Park
The largest marine park in the Mediterranean
The National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago, the largest marine park in Europe, protects 56,766 hectares of sea and 17,887 hectares of land. It includes all the seven main islands of the Tuscan Archipelago and some minor islets and rocks. Like the pearls of a necklace, each island is different from the other. Each island preserves the traces of its history, each island is unique, original, with only one feature in common: the beauty of its nature.
The Tuscan Archipelago includes the seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Elba, Capraia, Gorgona, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio, Giannutri.
These are very different geological formation islands: Capraia is volcanic, Giglio and Elba are predominantly granitic. A great geological variety that influences the shape and the landscape of each island. The ancient presence of man, evidenced by the findings and the long tradition of processing minerals, has produced profound changes in the original vegetation and the holm oak woods remain only in parts of the Elbe, while the Mediterranean vegetation is the dominant vegetation.
Seven pearls floating in the sea: the islands of the Archipelago offer visitors all their potential for beauty, nature, culture and history.
