The isle of Giglio is in the Tyrrhenian Sea, 11 miles from Mount Argentario. The island is granitic and its shape is very similar to the isle of Capraia. The morphologic elements of the island are mountainous with presence of beaches within bays and a diversification in structure between the west and east coast.

 

The highest relief, 496 meters, is Poggio della Pagana, where it is possible to admire the great landscape of the Tuscan Archipelago. There are some flat areas as well, now cultivated prominently with vineyards: Fontuccia, Pentovaldo, Mortoleto and many others.
