Scilla

Cities and Towns in Calabria

The village of Scilla is located in the southern region of Calabria and is a stunning town to visit during your stay in the region of Calabria with stunning views over the straight of Messina towards Sicily.  According to Homer's Odyssey, ancient Scilla (Scylla) was where one of the two monsters resided, dreaded by passing sailors.   Today, nothing in Scilla looks remotely threatening, espcecially in summer, when the broad sandy beach is the focus for sunning and swimming day by day, and carousing by night. At the northern end of the bay, a castle resides loftily on a rocky spur - a grand vantage point for watching the tall masted feluche swordfish boats patrolling the Straits and gazing at the marina below or the island of sicily directly across the bay.   Throughout the town there are  numerous restaurants and cafès along Scilla's lungo mare and lidos make the town a perfect spot for lunch on your way to or from Sicily.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
