Tuscan Coast and Tuscan Archipelago in Italy is a fairly popular destination. Yachts cruising along the Tuscan coast generally have a dilemma: whether to stick to the coast or island-hop down through the islands. If there is time, an ideal itinerary would take in at least the major islands of Elba and Giglio in between cruising the coast barely 10 miles away. Harbours are slightly sparser along this coast, which includes the major port of Livorno as well as marinas at (north to south) Marina di Carrara, Viareggio, Salivoli, Talamone, Santo Stefano, Punta Ala Marina, Porto Ercole and Marina di Cala Galera. For details of harbours, see below.
