Siracusa (aka Syracuse) was always on my radar to visit when I moved to the south of Italy. However, like many people, Covid put a spanner in the works of our plans. However, this year I finally got the chance , as part of a research trip for a new travel guidebook. More about that…
Crotone doesn’t appear in any of the usual guidebooks. This is such a shame as visitors are missing out on such a treat! It feels like one of those places that Calabrians want to keep all to themselves!
Tropea on the Tyrrhenian Sea’s Costa degli Dei (Coast of the Gods) is Calabria’s most famous resort town. It is also the current holder of the title of Italy’s most beautiful village and it is easy to see why. Tropea has miles of pristine white beaches. It also has so much more!
Diamante is a charming fishing village on the Tyrrhenian Sea known for its mural-lined streets. A visit any time of year is advisable, but if you plan your trip for its annual Peperoncino Festival you’re in for an especially spicy treat!
You know how some people collect stamps or spend hours picking their fantasy football teams? Well, we’re the same but with Italian cookbooks! So, we’d like to tell you about some of our favourites. They are in no particular order. Some you might know. Some might be new to you.
We decided to have a night away along the coast in Catanzaro and as it is just along the coast, we thought we would go by the coast railway instead of the car. Big Mistake!!!!!
Christmas is nearly here! As you may know, we in Italy have now gone back into a virtual full lockdown. This means that we are not able to travel to the UK to see our family. We are going to try and make Christmas and New Year here as good as it can be.
Genova (also known as Genoa) is a beautiful seaside city in Liguria on the northwest coast of Italy. Foodies will automatically think of pesto. However, Genova has so much more to offer people visiting for a day or two.
The city of Reggio (also called Reggio di Calabria or Reggio Calabria) is the main city of the province of the same name. It is also the closest main city to us, 30 minutes by train or car. This is the third post of the lesser known places to visit after our post on Perugia,…
Scilla, like most of Calabria, is generally overlooked by anyone travelling to Italy. This is such a shame, as they are missing out on one of Italy’s most beautiful villages. Don’t confuse Scilla with Sicilia, which is Italian for the island of Sicily! Even if you don’t have a car, you can get here easily…
There have been a lack of posts on here recently, but I have been busy with things in the background. We’re moving to Melito!
