Boats in Canitello with Sicily in the background...

Don't miss out on this beautiful but underdeveloped (tourist-wise) region of Italy. If you're on your way to Sicily, especially by train, you can easily hop off at Villa San Giovanni (my home-town, ahhh, what a joy) and take the train to Reggio Calabria. Get off at the Lido station and you will find yourself on the Via Marina.

I've only started to appreciate the beauty of southern Italy within the last couple of years...southern Italians are a lovable breed of their own :)

I hope to add more pictures and good tips for you to use on your stop-over in Calabria!

Look for future images and tips on:
-and the delicacies of Calabria

In the meantime check out my travelogue for more pictures.

    Inspiring page, thanks Laurina. I land here on way to Rome soon, should have stopped for a few days. Maybe I can change my ticket... Would love Scilla :) Take care, all the best!

    Nice little page. Your the only one who mentions the Greek bronze statues of Riace. They are regarded as true masterpeices of art.

    Your work is wonderful. It's informative, personal, emotional, enthusiastic, and honest. Is the Scilla that you speak of the same as Scilla in The Odyssey? Another place in Italy for me to visit. Ah, yes!
