... 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.

... time for the trip that seems too long for the distance, believe google as you have to traverse through small towns and therefore go an average of 70kms an hour. The autostrade was marvellous except when we reached our first toll. We pulled over and got out so we could ask for help but no one was in sight so we observed the other travellers. You have to go through and collect a ticket. The trick is to get as close to the machine and that isn't easy in a ...
