Calabria, often referred to as “the toe” of Italy’s boot-shaped Southern region, is home to some of the best coastline in the country, with vast tracts of rugged and rural landscape, scenery and terrain populating the interior.
The entire region is a hiking paradise, with highly mountainous areas giving way to some of the mostly wildly diverse flora and fauna in Italy.
The people here like their peaceful way of life, leaving the crowds and hordes of tourists to other Italian regions, meaning it retains much of its rich and authentic character.
