Calabria is at the toe of the boot, the extreme south of Italy - lapped by the splendid crystal blue Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas and separated from Sicily by the Strait of Messina. The warm climate, the beautiful colors of the sea, rocky coasts that alternate with sandy beaches, a nature that is wild and mysterious, the strong and genuine flavors of local food and the vestiges of its ancient origins make Calabria a unique place that you can enjoy in both winter and summer.
In Calabria, you can find some surprisingly picturesque towns and villages such as Tropea and Scilla. The mountainous centre of this region is dominated by three national parks, none of them particularly well-explored. Easily the region’s biggest snare are its Greek artefacts collected from ruins, archaeological sites and ancient shipwrecks and catalogued in some truly impressive museums.
