Reggio Calabria and Scilla
You can’t leave Calabria without visiting Reggio Calabria, with its wonderful promenade facing the Straits of Messina – “the most beautiful kilometre in Italy” according to the writer Gabriele D’Annunzio” – or without admiring the “Bronzes of Riace”, rare and unique examples of ancient Greek art dating back to the 5th Century B.C. In Reggio, after a walk along the delightful promenade, we will visit the National Archaeological Museum which hosts the Bronzes together with many other treasures.
On the way back a stop in Scilla – a jewel of the “Violet Coast” nestling between rocks and sea – to discover Chianalea, the fishermen’s hamlet, whilst listening to the story of the Greek myth of Scylla and her mother Lamia.
