It has become a very special event during Christmas on Elba Island. This small town of the island becomes a real open air nativity scene that resounds with music and happy voices. This is the Christmas market of Sant’Ilario, that in 2015 will take place on November 29, Sunday.
Lights, sounds, colors, stands: this is the Christmas market of Sant’Ilario. A moment awaited by children and adults. Children can find treats and games. Adults will have the possibility to taste the typical sweets prepared only at Christmas and to find local handicrafts.
Traditions, culture and typically Christmas flavors: the market of Sant’Ilario is a great excuse to spend a winter vacation to Elba Island.
Sant’Ilario in Campo is located on the hills of the island. On one side, there is the gulf of Campo. On the other side, the slopes of monte Perone (one of the highest mountain of the island). The town has an ancient part, made of very narrow streets. Could you imagine a better location for a Christmas market?
