The wild and unspoiled region of Calabria is at the toe of Italy’s boot. The Calabria area is well-known for its many seaside villages which are not more than 50 km from the sea. A Calabria Italy vacation is a must-see when visiting Italy.
Visitors who wander off the tourist trail will find many historic villages high in the mountains where the region is famous for its Greek and Roman heritage, countryside ruins, and museums.
The Calabria area is known for its Greek and Roman archeological sites. Evidence of ancient villages was discovered in much of the area and is now on display in one of Calabria’s archeological museums, including the National Museum in Reggio Calabria. The National Museum contains some of the most important collections in all of Italy. It is truly worth a visit.
Sun, Sea, and Snow
Most visitors looking for a Calabria Italy vacation are visiting the region for one thing only; the holiday resorts. In the winter, Calabria is popular with skiers from the south of Italy. The most popular seaside resort is Tropea, which not only has fabulous sandy beaches but a beautiful old town to explore when the southern sun gets too hot! Tropea is also the liveliest area if you are looking to stay somewhere with lots of bars and restaurants.
Festivals and Food
The Calabrian people are very proud of their heritage and their abilities as fishermen. Fresh seafood is available wherever you go and is celebrated in events like the Swordfish Festival in Bagnara during July. The region is still quite old-fashioned in many ways, and religion dominates the way of life in villages, meaning there are some spectacular Easter processions throughout
