Calabria: Travels in the toe of Italy.
Since 1777, when Henry Swinburne, first travelled in Calabria in search of Magna Græcia (Calabria’s Greek heritage), and then wrote about his experiences, there have been a further dozen travellers, including one woman, who have written travelogues in English (as opposed to travel guides) about Italy’s remote toe.
Calabria unveils, through the eyes of the traveller, a part of Italy that, even today, few know well. Calabria’s thematic format includes chapters on every facet of life, past and present, atop Italy’s remote toe: from Magna Græcia to amusing episodes; from spectacular mountains to devastating earthquakes; from remarkable people to the scourge of the mafia.
EAT AND DRINK
If there is a fundamental ingredient to Calabrese cooking, it would be the peperoncino. Calabrese cooking tends toward the spicy thanks to the generous use of various varieties of hot peppers in regional cuisine. In fact, so popular is the peperoncino, that the village of Diamante honors the hot pepper with its own festival.
In the first week of September the locals celebrate the Festival del Peperoncino, dedicated to the unofficial symbol of Calabria – the cayenne pepper. During the festival, one can taste freshly harvested peppers or try locally-produced products that make use of the spicy condiment – anything from pasta to (yes) gelato. Olio Santo, olive oil infused with hot pepper, is sometimes added to a plate of pasta to give it a little extra zip.
Soppressata (Sopresatta) is a popular dried sausage typical of the region. Also, Alici ripieni, stuffed anchovies, is a popular seafood dish.
Sardella is produced in some of the towns along the Ionian coast in the province of Cosenza. It is a spicy paste made with olive oil, mashed baby sardines and hot pepper.
On the other hand, Calabria is an up-and-coming producer of wines, with a number of regional wines earning the Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) label from the Italian government, such as Bivongi, Melissa or Savuto.
Tropea – Calabria, Italy.
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, the Aeolian Islands (also known as the Lipari Islands) are situated just above Sicily at the southern edge of the Tyrrhenian Sea, an arm of the Mediterranean 475 miles in length and 60 miles wide.
Corsica and Sardinia to the northwest, Elba Island to the north, and the boot of Italy to the east make up its borders. The Aeolian archipelago — Lipari, Salina, Stromboli, Panarea, Filicudi, Alicudi, and Basiluzzo — is rugged, beautiful, and mostly undeveloped.
Thirty nautical miles from Stromboli, the easternmost of the Aeolians, is the Calabria region of southern Italy and the picturesque harbor of Tropea, where the Moorings base is ideally located for the start of a Calabria sailing vacation. Sailors enjoying a more lengthy Calabria yacht charter can also visit Palermo, the capital of Sicily, and the Egadi Islands to the west of Sicily.
This Mercure Hotel is close to the North Cosenza exit of the A3 motorway and offers a swimming pool, free car park, and modern guest rooms with free Wi-Fi access.
