- This is a gem of a place. We stayed in a beautiful bnb right on the water with the most incredible view. U Catuio, just amazing. Incredible maze of streets, great little restaurants, beach beautiful but you need reef shoes!! Plenty of rocks, but the clear turquoise water is worth it. A great place to chill and just take in the views. Don't forget to visit the local fashion designer on the main strip for a unique piece of handmade clothing to take home. Highly recommended. We stayed 3 nights at the end of a 2 week stint in Sicily. Loved it.Written 16 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Fabulous museum covering the history of the area going back to 6,000 BC! We went to see the Riace Bronze sculptures but found so much more. The exhibits are presented well and everything has Italian & English descriptions. It's worth the trip!Written 11 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We walked part of this on our way to the station. That day it was clear and there were stunning views to Mt Etna. It’s a beautiful walk near the water that’s for sure. Unfortunately we were eager to leave as we didn’t feel welcome. A shame for tourism for the area.Written 1 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A charming place one ought to visit, though less than 2 hours is more than enough. A small village studded amidst rocks that make you feel you are in Turkey rather than Southern Italy. Mostly abandoned after an earthquake 200 yrs ago and uninhabited from the 1960s to the 80’ it’s being slowly rejuvenated and restored, lovingly. A long way to go, as most of the houses of the lower part have caved in completely and lie in ruins. The views across the valley and of the town itself across the canyon that separates it from the parking lot are breathtaking.Written 28 October 2022
- Both the town Stilo and especially the church from the 10th century are worth a visit. There is a strong sense of ancient history, coupled with beautiful nature surrounding it. Plenty of hikes, not just up to the castle.Written 29 July 2019
- Gerace is a beautiful fortified place atop a steep hillside with glorious views of the surrounding countryside and the Cathedral has to be its star attraction. It's a huge cavernous place with numerous exhibits and displays. A truly fascinating place with a forbidding exterior.Written 14 October 2022
- Beautiful castle, beautiful surroundings and views. Fee 2 euros. Some cool and shady places. Toilettes. I recommend you to visit if you like old sights.Written 20 July 2022
- A truly memorable experience. The jeep ride up the mountain to the falls was an exciting experience for our family. Vincenzo our driver and tour guide was funny, informative and an experienced driver of the rough terrain. Vincenzo gets you to the point where the remaining hike to the falls is about 20mins on foot. On the trail we met young children on a summer camping trip to elderly hikers with canes. The terrain is rough but not impossible as it was our first experience doing something like this as a family and we only had running shoes on. Once we reached the waterfall it was magical. The water was cold but did not stop us from taking the cold plunge. Overall a wonderful experience and would highly recommend booking with Vincenzo.

Un'esperienza davvero memorabile. Il giro in jeep su per la montagna fino alle cascate è stata un'esperienza emozionante per la nostra famiglia. Vincenzo, il nostro autista e guida turistica, è stato divertente, istruttivo e un guidatore esperto su terreni accidentati. Vincenzo ti porta al punto in cui l'escursione rimanente per arrivare alle cascate è di circa 20 minuti a piedi. Sul sentiero abbiamo incontrato bambini piccoli in campeggio estivo e anziani escursionisti con bastoni da trekking. Il terreno è accidentato ma non impossibile, dato che era la nostra prima esperienza di fare qualcosa del genere in famiglia e avevamo solo scarpe da corsa. Una volta raggiunta la cascata è stato magico. L'acqua era fredda ma non ci ha impedito di fare un tuffo nell'acqua gelida. Nel complesso è stata un'esperienza meravigliosa e consiglio vivamente di prenotare con Vincenzo.

- Interesting. I'm no modern art fan, but these were cool. Took some good pics. Why more words are required is beyond me.Written 8 August 2017
- Tucked away just behind Reggio’s picturesque Corso Garibaldi shopping street, I’m honestly not sure how I missed the Castel Aragonese in my previous visits to the wonderful southern city.
For a small fee you can walk through what remains of this impressive historical structure. While there may not be that much to see inside it, it does offer some fantastic panoramic views over the city, lido and across to Messina.
If in Reggio I’d definitely recommend paying it a visit. Of the 2 gents working there when I visited only one spoke English, but both were helpful and polite.Written 21 August 2019
- The Roman Villa of Casignana is a must see on anyone’s bucket list of things to do in southern Italy. It is along the Statale 106, the state route which runs along the Calabrian Ionian coast. The area is under the supervision of Giuseppe Romeo, who enables visitors to see the Villa and admire its precious ruins at a very close distance. All of the works have been covered to protect them from the elements, but this also allows you to stroll around in comfort even in the middle of summer. A tunnel has been built which connects the mountain side area with the seaside complex. Mosaics showing four feminine figures riding monsters in the shape of a lion,a tiger, a horse and a bull, are rich in colour and clarity. The unearthed evidence, the precious marbles, painted stuccos and mosaics all add up to lavishly decorated interiors suggesting that this Roman Villa housed royalty, making it a historically significant site and a must see for all visitors to this area.Written 19 November 2019
- The best place in town to relax and watch the scenery. Well standing on this piazza it's important to reflect back on the earthquake in on February 6, 1783. The earthquake triggered a massive landslide that completely erased this City from the map. It also killed 1000 people on in around the beach after triggering a massive tsunami.Written 15 January 2022
- fantastic and lovely sight from the top.
downstairs there is a little paradise corner which makes you to fall in love with the costa viola. clean waters, non sand (just rock) good sight and you.Written 25 August 2016

enjoy!Written 18 May 2016
- The Arena dello Stretto is a great viewpoint for Sicily and a good photo opportunity. Located on the Lungomare Italo Stretto it is used at times during the year for concerts. There is also the monument for Emanuele Vittorio 3rd located at the end of a short pier which provides a focal point over the Straits of Messina.Written 27 October 2019
