Latest update: 26 February 2022
The island of Gorgona is one of seven in the Tuscan Archipelago (Arcipelago Toscano) situated in the Ligurian Sea, around thirty seven kilometres from the port town of Livorno. Five of the seven islands can be visited without much difficulty but Gorgona (along with Montecristo) has some restrictions in place.
The juxtaposition of Gorgona is that is it at once a penal colony and an area of environmental beauty, both of which contribute to a limited number of permitted visitors.
Those restrictions change a little every year so I'll be updating this page soon with full details on how you can visit Gorgona this year.
