Beautiful small Borgo of this Small Italian Village right in front of Sicily. The small street is only for pedestrian and is well maintained, many family leave in this neighborhood, between many b&b and seafood restaurant. Its definitely a fishing village, with many small boat and fisherman who is working on their maintenance. Definitely a place to check for 24h.

Lovely narrow streets, charming restaurants, the sound of the sea, a prominent castle, a harbour, local speciality foods (swordfish), warm evenings evenings even in October...... For many years I have regarded my beloved Italy as the most beautiful country in the world and Chianalea is one the many reasons why.

Incredible locale! A fantastic jewel to discover while visiting Reggio Calabria. We arrived a couple hours before sunset and took in the the views from the cliffs and a walking tour of the beautiful. A must see site when visiting Reggio Calabria.

Down at the coastline of Scilla you have narrow lovely streets by the side of the water. There is prominence with the harbour and castle; and then a beach with the usual attractions. Lovely little town. And the views from Chianalea are wonderful looking over to Sicily.

Small and even smaller streets. In this romantic city center you can easily browse hour. It is best to arrive in the evening after dark, when the lights instead. Rather night do not go to dark small streets to the sea, frighten cockroaches and cockroaches scare you :-) There are lots of good restaurants.

Lovely historical citadel at the end of Italian peninsula. Before discovering the beauty of Sicily, stop here and enjoy some days.

The church is located just behind the castle and is open at no cost. If you are visiting the castle, you might as well take in the church as well. It is pretty inside with a more modern painting of Jesus and a mosiac of St. Rocco behind the altar.

Yesterday night was the first time I visited Chianalea. This is a little small village completely on the sea. The little narrow streets lead you to many corners from where you can see a gorgeous view of is magnificent place facing the sea. The small buildings were all renovated and the lights on the streets created an atmosphere which was... More
