What would you expect from Christmas on Giglio Island, Italy? Surely lights, colors, the scent of traditional sweets, the sense of peace and quiet that only this destination can offer. Since you’re here, go to Campese. Where, each year, the underwater nativity scene is set up.
Campese is the village of Giglio located on the west coast of the island. It is famous primarily for two reasons:
- It is the place where, especially in summer, Giglio Island people and tourists watch the sunset and have a drink near the sea
- The homonymous beach is one of the most beautiful of the island
It’s worth a visit just for these two reasons.
But, on the occasion of Christmas, there is one more reason. In the water that brushes the sand, a picturesque and suggestive underwater nativity scene is set up. Over the years, this nativity scene has become a real tradition.
Usually, the underwater nativity scene of Giglio is one of the attractions that enriches Christmas on this island. For more details, please visit the official website of the comune of Isola del Giglio, Comune.isoladelgiglio.gr.it.
