The Calabria region, known as the
toe of the boot of Italy, is a peninsula which encompasses a
wide range of stunning landscapes.
It is surrounded
by water on three sides and it boasts almost 800 km of dramatic
coastline along which we can admire beautiful white sandy beaches overlooking a
crystal clear sea, natural arches carved into the high rocks,
and little fishing villages scattered along the high coasts or
built in small bays.
The high Apennine ridge and the Sila plateau area offer amazing
opportunities to enjoy an untouched and beautiful nature among
streams and natural springs and have great and tasty food.
The region was part of the famous Magna Graecia,
therefore it is rich in history, culture and myths such as those
reported by Homer. Important archaeological sites are found
here: the achean town of Sibari, Crotone which
hosted the famous philosopher Pitagora who created here one of
the most important philosophical schools of the antichity, Locri
and Reggio Calabria. Small museums host works of art of
exceptional value. Among the most famous archaeological
findings the two Riace ancient Greek bronze statues, dating back to 450
b.C., became famous all over the world.
This amazing region
also hosts many Byzantine churches which contain precious
artifacts, ancient codexes and paintings made by the most famous
Beautiful villages perched on the rocks are notorious for
medieval architectures which are still well preserved.

land, or erected on a steep coastline, were transformed into
museums which host historical treasures.
