Life endangering monsters

Scylla and Charibdis are two sea monsters who work havoc along the two coasts of the strait of Messina. The strait is so narrow that every ship passing through can't proceed without fighting one of the two monsters. The two creatures lie there waiting for their next victims: no brave hero succeeds in killing them, but very clever sailors succeed in passing through the strait. This journey starting from Sicily will take you all around Europe and you will have the chance of meeting other dangerous monsters, namely dragons, whose terrifying presence scared women and men alike.
