Granite: its beauty and secrets. On the trail of stone animals
Transfer using personal transport to Le Porte: here, before a sweeping panorama that also embraces the nearby Island of Giannutri, the Park Guide will highlight the characteristics of the granite rock that makes up 90% of Giglio Island. We’ll observe various geological manifestations and will recognise in the granite, sculpted by the wind, the shapes of many animals. We will then climb to Poggio della Pagana, the highest point on the island to admire the 360-degree panorama of the area and the sunset over the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. At the end of the visit, we return to Giglio Castello and those who wish may dine in a characteristic restaurant (10% discount for excursion participants).
Meeting point: 4 hours before sunset, Piazza Gloriosa in Giglio Castello
Duration: 4 hours.Difficulty: medium – Advance
