Cruising in Italy's instep

Has anyone recently cruised in the instep of Italy, or more particularly from Reggio to Rocca Imperiale, and if so is it recommended? We will be there the last weeks of September. Prefer putting an anchor down where we can but happy to go into harbours when necessary. Also what is the rest of the instep like for sail cruising? Thanks for any suggestions.

Wiki: Siderno is home to the 'Ndrangheta, a Mafia-type criminal organization based in Calabria. Several powerful criminal clans originate from the town. Siderno was the fiefdom of Antonio Macrì, the undisputed local boss until his demise in January 1975. Several of the criminal clans are sometimes involved in bloody feuds.[5] The town is home to one of the 'Ndrangheta's biggest and most important clans, the Commisso 'ndrina, heavily involved in the global cocaine business and money laundering.
