The pristine region of Calabria is a tantalizing collection of ancient ruins, verdant woodlands, and crystalline coastal waters. The area’s unmistakable beauty is further enhanced by its untouched authenticity – a true natural paradise that stands out amongst its more trendy and fashionable neighbors. Fly to Calabria with Alitalia to see it for yourself while enjoying a level of refinement and sophistication that only Italy’s premiere airline can provide.
Millions of visitors travel to Calabria each year to lounge upon some of Italy’s most stunning beaches. The most popular of these are found under the looming coastal cliffs of Reggio Calabria, one of the oldest cities in Italy, known as the ‘city of bronzes’ after the remarkably well-preserved Riace bronze statues that call it home. If you plan to spend much time on the coast, book your tickets to Calabria for June or September for the most pleasant beachcombing weather and to avoid the busy summer crowds.
Calabria is host to a great many incredible artifacts from the Magna Graecia period, many of which are on display in Crotone’s National Archaeological Museum. Further north, amidst the alluring scents of chestnut and pine, the natural hot springs of Lamezia Terme await weary travelers, nestled within the primeval forest of Mitoio Caronte Protection Park.
