Dazzling Scilla, Italy’s Reggio Calabria

Italy, Scilla Guide (B): Dazzling Scilla, Italy’s Reggio Calabria

You would be forgiven for wanting to visit Scilla in Italy’s Reggio Calabria, time and time again…this really is a wonderful destination. And what better way to see this dazzling town precariously perched against rocks, than with friends from overseas…

In my first post on Scilla, I introduce you to the main sights of this picturesque southern Italian town. As this town is a photographer’s delight, I’m indulging in mainly photos.

If you’re on the train from the north, then stop at Scilla’s Marina Grande train station. From Cosenza, the Trenitalia trip is about three hours, which follows the beautiful Tyrrhenian coast, whilst snaking south to the toe, in Reggio Calabria.

Life is so much easier with a hire car. As this is the second visit, driving from Cosenza in Calabria is straight-forward on the E45 for under two hours. There are no tolls and the highway is in great shape in this part of Italy – a smooth ride. Park just before the huge tunnel as the parking meters never work, so you are safe from getting a fine – but do check, just in case. ......
