We continue on our way up amongst the most beautiful scenery. This is a trip with a big difference because we will see much more on the road. We will have as many stops on the road as needed and one of them will be for lunch  at  Sibari .  Later we continue on our way to our comfortable  COSTA  IONICA  RESORT  where upon arrival we take the rooms and later meet for dinner.
