Calabria is the largest region of the peninsula; travelers come here attracted by its mild climate, beautiful wide beaches, delicious cuisine, as well as a rich historical and cultural heritage of cities. The coast of the province borders with two seas, Ionian and Tyrrhenian, so tourists have a unique opportunity to appreciate the diversity of local beaches. The coastline is about 800 km; the Calabrian coast is the longest in Italy.
It’s worth to say a few words about the unique nature of these places that has attracted poets and painters for many centuries. You can see rich forests and groves a few steps away from the coast; even large cities have picturesque parks, bright flower beds and alleys. Fans of ecotourism can go for a walk in the mountains; those fond of water activities can relax at any beach. In addition to natural beauty, travelers are attracted with relatively low prices for accommodation and service. Most local hotels are of mid-market level, but the quality of their service remains on top.
There is a huge number of provincial towns and villages along the coast, each of which has something to surprise their guests. Travelling around towns allows visiting the most interesting historical sites of these places, as well as olive and mandarin groves, verdant meadows and azure coasts. The most famous town of the province is Tropea; the resort is located on the shore of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Walking through the historic center you can see beautiful palaces, old squares and churches, as well as panoramic views of the surrounding area rising to one of the rocks.
