    Scilla Italy

    June 28, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    We took the overnight ferry from Patras on Greece to Bari in Italy. Then we drove 450 kms to Scilla which is a gorgeous fishing village just 22km from the end of Italy before the Messina straits. We have a small apartment right on waterfront with water lapping our bedroom. Went for swim which was refreshing too! Parking here is problem for visitors but not locals who ride scooters in the narrow alleyways at great speed. Ate pasta for tea followed by ice cream. High above the village is the old fort which dates back to 400BC. Ancient fishing legends tell of a beautiful nymph who turned into a monster with six heads and twelve tentacles and who lived in the Messina straits and terrorised sailors and fisherman.Read more
