Holidays in Calabria

Location and orientation

Spend your holidays at the tip of your boots in Italy

Calabria is a region in the southernmost part of mainland Italy. The region consists of the provinces of Cosenza, Crotone, Vibo Valentia and Reggio di Calabria as well as the province and capital Catanzaro. Other important cities in the region are Castrovillari, Sant' Andrea Apostolo dello Jonio and Scalea.

Varied natural landscapes to discover

Calabria is characterized by mountains, the coast of the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas and the land plain in between. The mountains of the region include the southern foothills of the Pollino, the mountain ranges of the Catena Costiera and the Sila. In Calabria you will also find the "Strait of Messina", a strait that connects the mainland with the island of Sicily.

Travelers and Activities

Experience the most wonderful bathing holidays

Along the Calabrian coast there are countless sections with beautiful sandy beaches. These sections are interrupted by cliffs that drop steeply into the sea. This also results in many smaller bathing bays where you can enjoy a lot of privacy. The larger beaches offer water sports such as surfing and diving.

Hiking over mountainous landscapes

Use the unique location of your holiday destination to get to know the region in its most original form. Through the national park areas, especially those of the Sila mountains, there are numerous signposted paths available for walks and mountain hikes. Also along the coast lonely paths invite you to hike and enjoy the view.

Born in Taverna in 1613, the painter and knight of the Order of Mattia Preti of Malta is one of the most famous Calabrian artists, famous for his Baroque frescoes.

Top 5 travel tips

Santa Maria Church in Tropia, Calabria
Santa Maria Church in Tropia, Calabria
1. Admire architectural peculiarities

The remains of ancient buildings can be found mainly at the excavation sites of Sybaris and Lokroi. Special finds are exhibited in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria. The church buildings in Stilo, Rossano and Gerace date from the Byzantine period. Calabria also has a number of fortifications built under Norman rule, such as the forts of Nicotera, Crotone, Cosenza and Vibo Valentia.

2. Marvel at sacred uniqueness in the Diözesanmuseum

The Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra in Rossano presents you, in addition to many religious art treasures, the oldest, richly decorated Greek gospel, painted with silver ink on purple parchment. This valuable Syrian manuscript dates from the 6th century and was brought to Calabria by Orthodox monks in the 7th century.

3. Visit ancient animal pictures in the grotto

The Grotta del Romito, in Papasidero the "hermit's cave", houses among other things an over 11,000 year old animal picture, which was carved into a rock. It shows an aurochs and a Stone Age man. In addition, you can view some more engravings and graves here as part of a sightseeing tour.

4. Experience customs and folk art

Religious holidays, such as Easter, Christmas and the patron saint's days, are among the most important in Calabria. On the occasion of these holidays, elaborate processions take place in many villages of the region, which are often crowned with fireworks. In the interior of the country, handicrafts such as weaving and wood carving, but also the production of ceramics and basket weaving still have a long tradition. Of course, you can also buy these artistically manufactured products and bring them home as souvenirs.

5. Eat really well

In general, Calabrian cuisine is considered to be hot, as is the case with the sausage spread N´duja . Typical dishes on the coast are culinary creations made from tuna or swordfish. In the mountains, however, wild boar, chestnuts and mushrooms are often eaten. In fact, the pizza comes from southern Italy, where it is still traditionally baked in stone ovens. Calabria also has a large variety of pasta specialities.
