Map: Soverato

Soverato is one of Calabria's most famous fishing villages, drawing northern Italians in droves each summer. 

The town offers visitors splendid sugar-white sand beaches that stretch out onto a peninsula, surrounded by the stunning colours of the Ionian sea.  Beach and outdoor enthusiasts will love Soverato for the long sea-walk, shady sea wall and great seafood. 

However, beaches are about the only thing Soverato has to offer and visitors should not expect much in the way of cultural or hisotrical site seeing. 

A busy street runs through the town's main centre taking away from the "quaint" fishing village image the town is known for  throughout Italy.

So, what the heck.  It's a beach town, and should be taken at face value.  An afternoon swim in the beautiful blue-green waters surrounding the area, or a stroll down the "lungomare" are pleasant and invigorating.  If you have a special friend to share the time with, there might be nothing better on the planet.
