Calabria is at the toe of the boot, the extreme south of Italy. The warm climate, the beautiful colours of the sea, rocky coasts that alternate with sandy beaches, a nature that is wild and mysterious, the strong and genuine flavours of local food and the vestiges of its ancient origins make Calabria a unique place that vacationers can enjoy in both winter and summer. The National Parks, which cover most of inland Calabria, are a thrill for nature lovers.
