Welcome to my blog and southern Italy. My name’s Donna. I have travelled all over Italy and never come across such a beautiful and diverse region such as Calabria for its art, architecture, archaeology, gastronomy, attractions, beaches and natural wonders. This is where I stopped to explore more.

It offers so much to the visitor and can take years to explore the entire region. There are five provinces in Calabria; Crotone, Catanzaro, Reggio Calabria, Cosenza and Vibo Valentia. Each region offers something unique.

Exploring eastern Sicily and Calabria

I would like to share with you some of the delights Calabria has to offer. Some of them are not easy to find and sometimes, I had only found them by chance. Calabria is also a perfect base to explore eastern Sicily and the Campania region. You can read about my weekends to some of these incredible places from Calabria.

I would also like to share with you some information and insights on this beautiful land based on my personal experience. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, looking at photos of the food and my travels in southern Italy.
