Where the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas meet, the lovely old village of Ganzirri sits on the north-eastern tip of Sicily. It’s a small town of fewer than 200 people, yet it attracts many visitors to its shores, many of whom love seafood. Cultivated in the salt water lake, surrounded by the town, are the most delicious mussels, often seen on the restaurant menus, alongside plenty of clams, swordfish and a collection of other local seafood. The lake is also an excellent place to watch a fascinating display of migrating birds. Ganzirri is a great place to catch the ferry to mainland Italy, for a day trip. The region of Calabria makes for a lovely sunny excursion, or you can visit the popular beaches in the district including Mortelle - a lovely summer resort where the locals and tourists hang out, sunbathe and generally enjoy themselves.
