We stopped in Scilla to meet up with a friend’s friend. He gave us the 1 hour stroll tour of Scilla and it was lovely. Sleepy and sweet. It was a great little stopping point before we got on the ferry to Sicily.

If you are in Scilla you should really take a stroll down to Chianalea di Scilla, the picturesque fishing village located north of the Castello Ruffo. You get there by stairs in just a couple of minutes and can walk the tiny old streets that...More
