Your holidays in Calabria: all you need to know for your next stay

The southernmost region in Italy, Calabria is a narrow peninsula which juts out into the Mediterranean. Bounded to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea and to the east by the Ionian Sea, it is a charming region where history, art and culture are complemented by wild, unspoiled natural landscapes.

The National Parks of Aspromonte and Sila make the ideal base for discovering Calabria's rugged landscapes, mountains and hills.

Sea lovers are attracted by the region's compelling coast gathering alluring beaches of white sand and high cliffs falling sheer to the sea, which contribute to give it utmost profusion. Among the most beautiful resorts which follow one another along the 600-kilometre-long coast not to be missed are the famous Tropea, Reggio, with its beautiful sea front, the regional capital Catanzaro, Scilla, Soverato, Roccella Ionica and Praia a Mare.

Holidaymakers will have the opportunity to discover an inestimable historic - artistic heritage dating back to the Greek and Roman Ages. The region's most representative landmarks are the Bronzi di Riace (Riace Bronzes), which are cherished by the National Museum of the Magna Graecia in Reggio Calabria, and the numerous archaeological sites situated in Reggio, Locri, Sibari, Crotone and around Catanzaro. Calabria is a lively region which still retains fascinating reminders of ancient cultures and traditions.
