Reggio Di Calabria Italy

Hi Has anyone been to Reggio Di Calabria recently? Do you have the marina's email? I can't find it anywhere online.

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

We were there about 4 years ago. 'Marina' is a fairly generous term for a scruffy dock with minimal facilities a long walk from from a mostly unattractive city. It was expensive (from memory 60euro/night for 12m) with extra charges if you stay more than 2 nights.
Given the lack of facilities the lack of email is not surprising.

Yes, i agree. If you go South skip that and stay on Taormina anchorage, already in Sicily. Visit the city that it is well worth a visit. If you go North the first nice marina is in Vibo Marina, Estrella del Mar.

Thank you for the replies. We are heading from Portorosa Sicily to Croatia. We wanted to skip Messina, so we thought Reggio would be good for a quick one night stop.

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

Go further South to Siracusa at the extreme tip of Sicily: great bay at the edge of a beautiful ancient Greek city. At par if not better than Taormina. You can also visit Noto, inland, great for baroque churches. You need a few days. Forget Reggio Calabria.

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

Syracuse is South bound

Better:

Milazzo
Riposto
Roccella Jonica (Calabria)
Catania, eventually..

Forget reggio

Rocella Ionica (not Jonica ) is good.
Look at Crotone.

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

The small Porto Levante Quay in the non commercial north basin in Reggio Calabria (busy ferry terminal and Navy patrol docks) is posted on Google as being operated by Lega Navale, the Italian Navy League. Home | Lega Navale Italiana
REGGIO CALABRIA, President: Mr. Rosario Ventura. Registered Office: Porto Levante Quay - 89122 - Reggio Calabria (RC), Tel .: 0965.923537 Fax: 0965.923537 Cell .: 339.4152638. E-mail: reggiocalabria@leganavale.it - Activities: Boating Education Center, Groups & nbspSportivi: Sailing - Sport Fishing.
We've transited the Strait of Messina 4 times in 7- to 9-knot boats, just hated jousting with all the cross traffic, fast ferries and cargo ships. You're probably wise to get through there with daylight, get to a quay tie for one night, then continue around (with awareness of the smuggler-refugee boat interceptions) toward the heel for your crossing point. Brindisi worked for us. Everyone loves cruising Croatia. Buona Fortuna.

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

I crossed the other way two weeks ago, from Preveza, Greece to Sicily. These are the places where we stopped for the night:
- Limin Alipa, west coast of Corfu (anchored in bay; although no point stopping here if you are going north to Croatia)
- Leuca, "heel" of Italy (side-to in port, no charge)
- Capo Colonna, near Crotone (anchored in national park just north of the cape)
- (Skipped Rocella Ionica to take advantage of weather window; I believe Rocella Ionica is the nearest port to Sicily in Southern Italy)
- Giardini Naxos, a couple of miles south of Taormina (anchored in well protected bay; we had earlier arrived in Taormina at 2:00 in the morning but the swells from the south were making even the anchored megayachts dance so we moved on to Giardini Naxos which was calm.)

Reggio Di Calabria for some reason gets a bad rap but I spent 2 days there and I reckon it is a delightful city. Just get into the harbour and find the small marina and tie up. Marina is not great but walk up to the town and you will be rewarded with a really nice promenade along the sea, lined with beautiful grand old buildings and palm trees. In the evening it is very pleasant with many people enjoying a stroll and an ice cream. You'll see Mount Etna in the distance and maybe some break dancers doing their thing. Ignore the guide book and have a look. I'd stay over there again.

Hello Sir
Maybe you studied, like me, Italian literature (8years), Latin (8 years), ancient Greek (5 years) and maybe happen to be Italian mother tongue...

Jonica is what is written on the Municipality logo

The J stands for a LONG "i" sounds

J was used in Latin, but not in spoken living italian, as being substituted by ii, and after by
i alone.
It is, i agree, a linguistic finesse,that which any foreign scholar can appreciate, yet 99,9% of may country fellows may totally ignore, like you :-) either

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

I find the level of "CONFRONTATIONAL COMMENTS" (mostly by ignoring people) the most dislikeable feature in CF.

Ah, if only the few wise could speak up.... :-)

A petulant Voice is the most prominent feature in children and over aged dementes

Comune Roccella Jonica - Sito Istituzionale del Comune -[/QUOTE]

Dearest Thunderbird,
Isn't your response a little too harsh:
Iuppiter eratus ergo nefas...
While you are technically correct, on most maps/charts the name would be spelled Ionica and our purpose here is to help the OP to find pleasant places to visit and not to argue about alternative spellings (my opinion at least).
I have been there twice and all post and signs were spelled Ionica. So even though the town call itself Jonica, if you open the link you have so courteously provided the following appears:
<Brochure eventi in programma nei mesi di giugno e luglio a Roccella Ionica>
Wishing you all the best,
Your humble 'uneducated' servant
Mark

Re: Reggio Di Calabria Italy

I went to Porto delle Grazie - Marina di Roccella last month, it is a delightful place to spend few days, the services are several and effective, furthermore the price is competitive. The staff is very nice and friendly. Totally reccomended!
