  • This place is really beautiful! The view is amazing; you can see Sicily and it seem so near that you can touch it.
  • Beautiful location, nice view, good hanging out in the summer season with all places for dining/drinking
  • As said D'annunzio: the most beautiful kilometro of Italy. Fully lined with tall trees and tropical plants. On the busy thoroughfare overlook beautiful villas in liberty style, from which you can enjoy the view of Messina with Etna in the background. At the end of the promenade, to the central station are located, remains of Roman baths, and a short section of Greek walls. Framed by a blue sky ... Unique view of the world.

  • Unique! overlooks the Strait of Messina, leaving an indelible charm. @ D'Annunzio look at him now! 😉

  • D'annunzio defined "the most beautiful kilometer in Italy". I don't know whether it's true or not, many say that D'annunzio never had to do with Reggio and with this beautiful landscape. Is it true? Who knows. A feast for the eyes, that's for sure.
