The most beautiful nativity scenes in Tuscany

Traditional, mechanical, ecological or in the grotto: all the various representations of the Nativity not to be missed

Alongside lights, trees and decorations, there are many nativity scenes that colour and animate the squares of Tuscany. Whether traditional, technological, living or set up in magnificent grottoes, the representation of the Nativity remains a deeply felt tradition throughout Tuscany.
