Isola del Giglio truly has a unique character. A set of poignant beauty and roots in the territory, millenary culture and traditions that are renewed, the desire to welcome season after season; Giglio Island is the very icon of the “Mediterranean spirit”, with that vital energy that pervades life on the island and marks the rhythm of events. Summer events are usually a well-balanced mix of tradition, culture and entertainment; an articulated schedule that wants to tell the complex personality of our island, to fully experience each period with a succession of opportunities.
Music, lights, emotions and sharing, these are the ingredients of the season; debut in May with the Festa dei Rioni in Giglio Porto, then in July the appointment is in Campese with the Sagra del Totano which is part of the trend of good food and the pleasure of traditional flavours. August at the Port with the unmissable challenge of the Palio Marinaro and the grand finale of the season in September in the village of Giglio Castello with the Grape Festival and the Open Cellars, to honor the territory strongly dedicated to offering indigenous wines of the highest quality, fruit of a millenary know-how.
In Giglio Castello, however, the most anticipated festival is that of the Patron Saint Mamiliano, one of the most heartfelt and authentic celebrations on the island, with religious rites and moments of fun in the square, including the Palio degli Asini among the districts of the village. But cultural tourism on the island is also made up of experiences to be lived; every year Giglio hosts important music festivals, photographic exhibitions, theatrical performances that complete the summer season and that can give memorable moments. Try them all!
