Imagine a sun drenched, pristine coastline with colourful landscapes and ancient architecture - and you’ve got Calabria. Lying to the extreme south of Italy, located on the ‘toe’ of the country’s boot-shaped peninsula, Calabria is a region of hidden gems. The rocky mountain ranges, ancient villages and scenic beaches are kissed by the azure Ionian Sea to the east and Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. Calabria is separated from the isle of Sicily by the Strait of Messina, with the Amalfi Coast and Basilicata to the North.
