Monte Argentario, Tuscany

Monte Argentario is a promontory stretching into the Tyrrhenian Sea towards the two southernmost islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, Giglio and Giannutri. Monte Argentario was an island in the past, but the sea currents and the Albegna river have joined it to the mainland through two tomboli (stretches of sandy terrain), the Tombolo of Giannella and the Tombolo of the Feniglia. The highest peak of Monte Argentario is the Punta Telegrafo (635 m). The landscape and the coast are mainly rocky, with numerous inlets, usually with rocky beaches. The main town is the fishing village of Porto Santo Stefano. The other township on Monte Argentario is Porto Ercole.
