Matera. If you are looking for a unique experience, Matera is the place to be. As you will notice, the renowned Stones clearly recall the places of the Christmas Nativity, making this city incredibly suggestive.

We strongly suggest to take part in the Presepe Vivente nei Sassi (Live Nativity in the Stones), an amazing representation in costumes organised in several sessions.

Napoli. Do you love Presepe (nativity scene)? Naples is the undisputed queen of this ancient tradition. If you go for a walk through San Gregorio Armeno you will have the opportunity to buy gorgeous handmade figurines for your nativity scene!
