A visit to the Tuscan coast isn't complete without seeing the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. Tuscany’s islands are composed of Elba, Giglio, Capraia, Montecristo, Pianosa, Gorgona and Giannutri (in size order), all protected and included in the Tuscan Archipelago National Park. Giglio, Pianosa and Giannutri can be reached by boat from Porto Santo Stefano; Elba Island can be reached from Piombino and Capraia is accessed via Livorno. The Tuscan Archipelago National Park's vegetation is the typical plant life of the Mediterranean, with its quintessential scents and colors - the flora and the fauna are lush and varied. The islands differ greatly from one another, as some are more catered towards young tourists looking for fun, while others are perfect for tourists looking for a bit of nature and peace.
