“I arrived at the city admiring its strange position. Built on high land it descends like a long ribbon on the eastern slope of the mountain, then it twists and spreads out along the sea…” (A. Dumas)
The myth of Scylla and Charybdis, the large marina with its bright white sands, the turquoise clear waters. Chianalea, the ancient fishing quarter of the small town, with its breathtaking views of the sea. A view of the Sicilian coastline which you won’t be able to take your eyes off.
So much beauty in one heavenly location: this is Scilla.
A little further north in Reggio Calabria lies one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. A world-class beach and tourist destination which has long attracted writers, poets and artists.
Comprising the characterful and ancient village of Chianalea and the Marina Grande beach, it is overlooked by the beautiful Castello Ruffo, a symbol and emblem of the Calabrian coast. From here you can enjoy the breathtaking view over the Costa Viola and the Strait of Messina
