Bova, “Greece” in Southern Italy

Bova is a hilltop village in Calabria, southern Italy. Located more than 800 meters above sea level, this ancient town is made up of steep alleys and stairways. To reach the top of the village, you need to be fit. Needless to say, the view from up there is fantastic. Bova is the cultural center of Calabrian Greek linguistic minority and most road signs are bilingual.
