As Forest Gamp used to say, “life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get.” Well, what I got, it was opportunity of unexpected trip to the south of Italy. I flew to Lamezia Terme at the very bottom of the Italian shoe and I spent two unforgettable weeks in my beloved Italy. So in the near future my blog will definitely be non-piemontese, but rather meridionale 🙂
During my stay, I visited four regions, including Calabria, which I have never seen before. Together with great people I discovered a great piece of southern Italy, I had the opportunity to see completely new places, but to my great satisfaction and joy, I managed to come back to the cities that I visited many years ago!
I do not know whether it is the distance from the rest of Europe and the north of Italy, or the fact that it’s one of the poorest regions in Italy, or even these and other factors make Calabria no so much populare as a tourist destination. Meanwhile, I completely fell in love with it. Wonderful climate (warm but not hot, lots of sunshine, lack of humidity, which can be traced in some Italian regions), marvelously warm sea and super nice people. Not to mention about excellent food! And how do you not love Calabria for that?
Because it is a large region, and I have been able to visit a big part of it, one article is definitely not enough to show you the beauty and diversity of this piece of Italy. In this post I will be your personal guide in Pizzo, from which I actually started exploring Calabria. Shall we start our tour? Let’s go!
