Although the concept of Mediterranean Diet is shared pretty much by every Country bordering the sea, the inclusion in the world heritage list was promoted by 4 Countries from both the north and south shore: Italy. Spain, Greece and Morocco.
Tropea is located along the Tirrenian coast on a rocky spur which overlooks the whole Gulf of St. Euphemia and the bluest sea. On clear days, like the one I have been so lucky to experience, you can see also the island of Stromboli, in a distance, one of the Eolian Islands
Cefalù is nowadays a nice, human sized beach village but it was originally built by the Normans. That is why its marvellous Cathedral shows mosaics similar to those of Monreale and Palermo, also included in the Unesco world heritage.
Summer is approaching and, although some social distancing will still be necessary, the Italians will re-start one of their most pleasant traditions: the “Aperitivo”.

It’s a simple way to spare some time with our dearest friends, our work mates, our families, sharing a drink and some snacks before having lunch or dinner.
