CALABRIA – ENJOYING THE SOUTH OF ITALY

I’m back!!! And as always these past 2 weeks have gone faster than I wished….but that’s always when you’re on vacation right? I’ve had a marvelous time in the beautiful South! I thought about how to give you a good impression of what a vacation in the South of Italy (in Calabria) is all about. Well I guess the following list gives you a good idea πŸ˜‰ :

  • lots and lots of food…
  • spectacular beaches
  • focaccia bread
  • crystal clear sea water
  • every day 30ΒΊC or more (how I love summer in the South!!!)
  • fried zucchini blossoms (my mom-in-law makes the best ever; see my post about it here!!)
  • romantic sunsets
  • a dialect spoken I still can’t understand
  • homemade gnocchi and pasta
  • idyllic towns
  • breathtaking panoramas
  • rocky coast line
  • best Italian ice creams
  • warm Nutella filled croissants at midnight
  • sunbathing
  • juiciest tomatoes you will ever taste!
  • red hot peppersΒ (peperoncino)Β everywhere…

And then it’s now time for a visual tour πŸ˜€ (oh and I didn’t bring my camera so all photo’s were shot with my iPhone…)

    1. Hi John, no this year we decided to try the pizza in Diamante..great pizza as well. So no White Horse this year ;). We stayed mostly at Fiuzzi (Praia a Mare), Arco Magno (S. Nicola, just south of Praia a Mare), Marina di Maratea and Spiaggia Nera (both Maratea) and Castrocucco (just north of Praia a Mare and south of Maratea)… It’s absolutely beautiful there!!
