The colored lights. The magical atmosphere that only this feast can give. Delicacies and traditional sweets. And all this in a place where time seems to pass more slowly, where traditions are still alive.

This is Christmas on Giglio Island, Tuscany.


Underwater nativity scene

It is one of the most characteristic attractions during Christmas on Giglio Island. The underwater nativity scene is set every year in the bay of Campese, in the sea of one of the most beautiful beaches of Giglio Island. For Giglio Island people, this is an inevitable stop of the Christmas period.


Traditional Christmas songs

Another great must of Christmas period. In December, it is not uncommon to hear these songs that echo through the streets of the three villages on the island. Special “theme nights” in various locations around the island are often organized.


Concerts in the Church of Giglio Castello

San Pietro church is the smallest and the most beautiful in this locality that rises in the heart of Giglio Island. On the occasion of Christmas, several concerts are set up in this church.


And not only

These are traditional events that enrich Christmas on Giglio Island. But they are, certainly, not the only ones: for more information, please visit the official website of Giglio Island municipality, Comune.isoladelgiglio.gr.it.
