Scilla, Calabria, Italy
Having travelled through Italy for many years, sketching the country from Top to Toe, we were delighted to visit the very ‘Toe’ of the boot itself: Scilla in Calabria.
This little fishing village is in a stunning location with a rocky cliff jutting out into the straits of Messina, topped with an ancient fortress separating two beaches.
In ancient myths it is traditionally the home of the fearsome monster Scylla who, along with Charybdis guarded the narrow Strait of Messina and menaced Odysseus (aka Ulysses) as he sailed the narrow waters between Scilla and Sicily.
