Strand auf der Insel Giglio Maremma ToskanaThe small Island of Giglio is situated in the southern part of the Maremma Tuscany and can be reached only with the ferry from the 11 seamiles distant Porto Santo Stefano.
With a surface of 21 sq.km. Giglio is after Elba the second island of size in Tuscany. Nearby there is another small Island Giannutri and the small island group Formiche di Grosseto. Even though the Italian word giglio means lily, the name doesn't derive from the flower, but from the Greek word Aegilium, the island of the goats.
The goats could survive during the hot summer months and the lonely, rough winter months and furthermore supplied the inhabitants with milk and meat. Already during the Iron Age people were living here. It is supposed that this island was also an important military base of the Etruscans. During the Roman empire, Giglio was of great importance because of the central position in the Tyrrhenian sea, which is testified by the Roman Villa found near Giglio Porto. In the course of the following centuries, Giglio was subjugated several conquests, from the Pisans over the Medici, from the Aldobrandeschi to the Saracenes.
