The Mount Argentario reaches out in the Tyrrhenian Sea just before the two southernmost islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Giglio and Giannutri.
The Argentario was originated as an island, but the action of ocean currents has him then joined to the mainland. It was probably already inhabited by the Etruscans and Romans, the promontory later became the domain of the Spaniards. They were responsible for the fortification of the two ports: namely the towns of Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole.
Porto Santo Stefano and its seafront are an enchanting corner of paradise, destination of an elite tourism. From its port have reached the island of Giglio and Giannutri, places of extraordinary beauty beloved by divers also experienced the most viewed waters rich in flora and fauna. Even Porto Ercole, with its port of Cala Galera, is a popular destination for VIPs who will moor their yachts. On the waterfront of Porto Ercole, in the evening, you will enjoy a peaceful and relaxing as well as the tasty cuisine based on fresh fish in one of the characteristic restaurants with terrace overlooking the sea. The town is dominated by the imposing “Spanish fortress”.
The coast of Mount Argentario, very jagged, offers coves and beaches, rocky predominantly of considerable beauty from a naturalistic point of view and where you can take a dip in the crystal. We highly recommend a trip by car along the scenic road, which runs all around the promontory and offers a truly unique view of the area.
