... Salvatore grows oranges, lemons, figs and onions and we were sent off with a bag of these when we left the next morning..... lovely hospitality. From what we saw, Calabria is like the South Coast in the 80s: sugar cane growing on the side of the road, sea sand on the road, low ugly architecture. In fairness, we didn't go to the beach, but of all the places in Italy, I wouldn't rush back there as I find it ...
... cemetery. Nek minit he offered to show us around the commune building. He had his granddaughter with him who seemed fascinated with our accents.

... local beach near Torre Canne. We walked for about 5 km return trip to the light house. The sand was more yellow and every 50 mt there was a Lido where you could hire umbrellas, lounge chairs and listen to disco music.
