Reggio di Calabria Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 101 photos

Calabria is an ideal place for adventurers. Here you find art treasures and villages whose older homes barely have electricity and running water. Architectural masterpieces have been eroded by the earthquakes that occur approximately every hundred years.
Calabria means rugged mountains, crystal clear seas and olive trees as well as ancient ruins, forgotten by time. It also means delicious fish, vegetables, cheese, sausage, salami, wild mushrooms, olives and figs.
Calabrian roads are very brutal. Generally narrow and full of pot holes or blocked by huge rocks. There are just a few excellent roads.
However, to explore Calabria you should be there by car. Only larger towns have rail stations and they are hard to find!
In Calabria you should know a bit Italian. People are very friendly but don't speak any foreign language.

    Awesome pictures which make me crazy to come back there and see more... (I visited Tropea). I liked this underrated region of Italy a lot, its friendly people, great local food, a lot of sun and wonderful lanscapes.

    Chris, those are some of the most enticing pages I've browsed. All this beauty still free from tourist crowds? And after spending some time having an unintentional "do-in" (ouch) on the pebbled Campania beaches, these sandy ones sound just like heaven :-)
