Wednesday: Breathtaking Sea-View

Breathtaking Sea-View

In no other place in Calabria are mountain and sea as close as on the Costa Viola near Palmi! Here the Aspromonte falls almost vertically into the sea, and here there is a narrow path that hovers between the sky and the sea, which the locals affectionately call “Tracciolino” (little track) that leads along the mountain side of Monte Sant’Elia. When the weather is clear, there is a wonderful view of the Costa Viola, the Aeolian Islands and the Strait of Messina, and sometimes even the Etna.

Duration: 3,5 hours, Elevation gain: 300 m
