Very enjoyable visit

Arriving in Palmi there's the usual feel of a small Italian village (pop approx 20,000).

The road in shows the bulk of the town are surrounded by olive trees. Anywhere they can put them & successfully harvest. And overlooked by a beautiful mountain, that just adds to the tranquility.

The centre of Palmi is a crazy road network of small older cars, & scooters. Parking wherever you feel like it (corners are especially popular).

Palmi has a range of all types of shops, some lovely piazza's, but strangely it overlooks the ocean...but it takes a windy road (of approx 8km) to actually get to the beach, & into the water. But it's worth the effort to drive down to Lido di Palmi the water is sparkling clear, the views magnificent, and a local rock formation is worth the trip to photo.

But one thing that stands out at the beach resort is a sense of under investment, & a lack of recent development. A lot of older buildings (with potentially great views over the beach), vacant blocks or old restaurants in prime positions.

In some ways Palmi itself is not dis-similar, it could do with a significant investment to bring it up to other coastal towns.
