Island of Gorgona
Gorgona, together with Pianosa, is the other island of the archipelago that until recently housed a penal colony. It was the last to be opened to the public and can now be reached by ferry from Livorno. The coast is characterised by numerous inlets. The most striking are Cala Scirocco, Cala Maestra and Cala Martina. There are also two fortifications on the island: the Torre Vecchia and the Torre Nuova.
How do I visit the island of Gorgona?
To reach the island of Gorgona, the ferry leaves from Livorno. There are departures twice a week and the ferry takes 1 hour to reach the island. If you are interested in visiting this natural heritage site, plan to get up early and be back by dinner time, because there is only one thing to go and one thing to come back. And if you have thought about sleeping on the island, be warned that this is not possible, because as it houses a prison, Gorgona has no hotels.
