ROUTES TO DISCOVER ORBETELLO AND ITS SURROUNDINGS
From Orbetello you reach, by crossing the Dam built in 1841, Mount Argentario:the highest promontory on the Tuscan coast. An ancient limestone island that with the mainland includes the Lagoon of Orbetello, one of the most important wetlands in Italy. It is protected by a State Reserve and a WWF Oasis for its natural and wildlife wealth, including important bird colonies. Of great interest are the historic centers of Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole and the archaeological areas of Ansedonia. To the west of argentario are the Islands of Giannutri and Giglio, partly included in the National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago. In Giannutri there are no marked paths, while giglio, which culminates in the 498 m of poggio della Pagana, offers fascinating itineraries. To see are the Roman Villa of Giglio Porto, the village, the Rocca di Giglio Castello and the Torre del Campese.
