Giglio Island, with its extraordinary heritage of biodiversity, blooms for eight months of the year and temperatures that never fall below zero, is a paradise for honeybees, which can live exclusively on the honey they produce and store, benefitting their health considerably. In this very special context, Barbara Galeotti, Alessio Agnelli and their son Gabriele developed the Queens apiary project for producing excellent honey. The name refers to the two Queens who are the protagonists of the project: Giglio Island and the queen bee. A walk from Scopeto Olivello will take us to the production site, where we’ll meet the beekeepers: here we’ll discover how the nature of the island enables sustainable production with sweet results, but also many curiosities and insights into the world of bees: “a perfect society”, the producers explain, “with well-defined functional roles, which should be a source of inspiration for human society”. Meeting point: 3 hours before sunset, bus stop after the Bivio, on the provincial road to Giglio Porto – Duration: 3 hours – Difficulty: easy – Advance booking required, € 15.
