  • Virtually all the islands of the Tuscan archipelago are part of the National Park, although at different levels. In some of them you can access (and also reside) completely freely, as Elba and Giglio. Others are accessible only as Pianosa and Gorgona; still others have so complicated to be inaccessible (I mean Monte Cristo). Unfortunately the National Park exists alongside several other companies that make it extremely bureaucratic and impractical. I am thinking of the island of Pianosa, where next to the Park Authority there are prison administration, the State and even the Vatican. Thanks to the presence of all these realities, in Pianosa tourism is discouraged, the island is uninhabited and the buildings are in danger of collapsing. However, despite the scarcity of financial resources (and not only) available, the Park Authority works wonders to keep monitored the situation, ensuring that the most unspoiled nature are preserved.
