The Tyrrhenian Sea, the sea of Homer and Virgil

The Tyrrhenian Sea, the sea of Homer and Virgil, of Odysseus (Ulysses in Roman mythology) and his seemingly never-ending 20-year journey, of the nymph Calypso, of Aeneas on his way to follow his fate to found Rome, of Scylla and Charybdis, the two sea monsters who were situated on opposite sides of the Strait of Messina between Sicily and Italy, where the Ancient Greek civilization met Ancient Rome and the world was transformed, some 2,000 years later the sea of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, and today the sea of scuba divers, beachlovers, and the in-the-know crowd

Calabria borders the sea, view this ancient land on Web Vision Italy.
