One of the most fashionable of the string of small resorts lining Calabria's north Tyrrhenian Coast, Diamante makes a good stop for its whitewashed maze of narrow alleys, brightly adorned with a startling variety of large-scale murals. The work of local and international artists, the murals—which range from cartoons to poems to serious portraits, and from beautiful to downright ugly—give a sense of wandering through a huge, open-air art gallery. Flanking the broad, palm-lined seaside promenade are sparkling beaches to the north and south.
