Calabria is at the very toe of the Italian boot in the heart of Mezzogiorno (a common term for the Italian south). Calabria is a region of mountains and beaches, traditions and relics of ancient culture. The Greeks, Normans and Romans all contributed to the Calabrian culture and landscape. Travelers are mesmerized by the Calabrian coastline and the region is a jumping off point for Sicily. The poet Gabriele D’Annunzio called the coast facing Sicily near Reggio Calabria “the most beautiful kilometer in Italy.” You’ll find everything from Norman castles to botanical gardens to Greek-speaking enclaves in the enchanting region of Calabria.
