Described in Homers Odyssey as the place where the sea monster resides and a menace for every sea voyagers, Scilla, is truly a town borne out of the art of poetry nestled in the southern part of Italy lying among the lavish wonders of Reggio Calabria. This rocky splendor lies just at the face of the Strait of Messina and is divided into two sections. The beach part referred to as Marina di Scilla is heavily populated by hotels and villas providing all sorts of accommodations for tourists who have come to marvel at the place.  The downtown district is where the locals reside and go about the daily businesses. With about six thousand locals dominating the everyday scene of the land, combined with the great influx of tourists and beachgoers during the summer, Scilla have become one of the busiest and most populated of places in the regions of Calabria.

With rocky hilltops and cliffs overlooking the wide expanse of the Mediterranean Sea, this marvel of a place looks as if it was crafted by the finest of hands at a distance. Dominated by historic architectural designs, visitors from all around the world, wallow in the midst of this beauty while basking in the seemingly inexhaustible supply of sunshine and fresh air. At the topmost area of the stunning town of Scilla is the noble and imposing castle Ruffio. The ancient structure gives the place the nobility it deserves; the town stands to this day bearing the ancient world that has been even before the birth of Christ.
