Chianalea di Scilla is one of the most beautiful Italian's Fishermans Borgos. You will find excelent restaurants and bars with a great view over the sea and over the town. We have visited at the end April 2016 and we had sunny days. Is an excelent period to taste the not crowd beautiful beach town. Chianalea di Scilla is an excelent option for Calabria visit. We wish to return soon.

This was a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. We lucked out on the day when we visited this site. It was a rainy day and at times we were the only visitors there. All we could here was the water rushing down the Waterfalls. It was very spiritual to see San Francesco's clothes on display in his shrine.

Beautiful beach and scenery. Worth the climbing. Easily accessed with a kaiak from the nearby beach. Snorkeling was poor, as no variety of fish or sea life.

I would have liked to be able to take photos but it's not allowed in there. Anyway, it was really interesting visiting this natural site.

Gorgeous long waterfront Promenade. Right at the water's edge are severamente beach bars great first aperitivo (happy hour drinks) or lounge on the beach after taking a dip in sea at one of the private beach lounges. Was there during the day but could see it as a very romantic sunset walk.

Animated representation of Tropea in Miniature. free admission for all. Do not miss the beautiful attraction that reminds us of the ancient crafts lost.
It was by total accident that we chanced upon a decent sized store in Tropea which featured zipper bags at a great price for about half the price we'd seen all over southern Italy for almost a month before. After purchasing one for our granddaughter we ambled inside to pay. Here we saw the awesome mechanical collection of various charming old world Italian workers manipulating their individual crafts.
I recalled seeing pictures of these on Tripadvisor months before while researching our three month trip and calling my wife's attention to their warmth. Now I chanced upon them in person and learned the young owner's father had put many years into making each one individually before he retired from production. (A sweet older lady pouring wine for an older man we almost bought among so many options at great prices) .
With much difficulty we settled for a pizza maker at his oven placing pies un the furnace for E 25. In New York that would easily get close to triple that price, and make great presents or advertisements for shop owners in similarly accommodating businesses. All we need to showcase the delightfully charming piece is a convertor for a few dollars once home.
A great bit of fun and tremendous keepsake from a master craftsman at a terrific price! Grazie tanto!

The locals call this beach "La Marinella", and it is separated from the main beach of Zambrone by a cliff (lo scoglio del leone - the lions's cliff): you can thus reach it via sea or by climbing the hill to the railway station and then go down through a narrow and sometimes steep path.
Do it and you'll be rewarded with one of the most beautiful Beaches of Italy, and for that matter, of the world (at least the one I know).
It is a tiny patch of land, thankfully know by not so many people, so you can sunbathe and swim nature. No services available, so bring your umbrella, chairs and beverages/food.
Go there, and you'll know the meaning of paradise on hearth.

After driving around the Mountains with stops at San Lorenzo Bellizi (extremely picturesque) and for hiking, we drove up up up to visit la Madonna delle Armi. The sanctuary is an impressive, massive stone structure with steps up to the church housing the image of the madonna. Gorgeous views of the Ionian Sean and the Mountains. Good place for a picnic lunch. When we visited in April, we were the only people there. Not to be missed.

The Magna Grecia denotation is among other things an exceptional appellation in the sense that transcends national boundaries and nationalism as such. Italy with this museum and the Egyptioan in Torino is a world leader in sensitive unassuming serious presentations. The richness, texture, materials, geography are impressive and didactic. The museum is not crammed or grandstanding in any of its constituents. The building is solid and not meuseumesque. The personal, notation, framing are pleasant and do nt intervene or meddle.
The Riace duet is something worth coming to Italy for and you shall read the story and reflect on form, technique, beauty, history of and kinetic geometry.

We in the area call this our "little Grand Canyon", and I have to say that some of the views are impressive. One of the big differences with the original one in Arizona and Utah is the fact that in the US you can comfortably drive to both rims of the canyon, whereas here you have to walk an over 800-step long staircase (and walk it BACK!) after crossing the canyon on this Devil's Bridge. So, if you dare doing that, you're welcome. The views are worth it!
