After an hour long ferry ride, I reached Giglio Island, most recently known for the Costa Concordia grounding incident (more on that in a later post). The island is quaint and seeminly untouched by time. Giglio Island is an Italian island and comune situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of Tuscany, and is part of the Province of Grosseto. The island is one of seven that form the Tuscan Archipelago, lying within the Arcipelago Toscano National Park. Giglio means “lily” in Italian, and though the name would appear consistent with the insignia of Medici Florence, it derives from Aegilium, “Goat Island”, a Latin transliteration of the Greek word for “little goat”.
