We really loved driving up the western coasts of Calabria and then Basilicata. Wonderful scenery, lovely coastal towns – we could see ourselves coming back to Praia a Mara – and then the hair-pin drive up to the Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Maratea.

Made of concrete with a Carrara marble covering, it’s slightly smaller than the one in Rio.
