Forming the ‘toe’ of the Italian Peninsula, the beautiful, mountainous region of Calabria is a popular tourist destination, rich in history, traditions and culture.
Located in the extreme south of Italy, Calabria boasts an array of natural beauties from imposing mountains (the region is home to four mountain ranges) to its gorgeous 497-mile coastline, as well as a plethora of attractions to fill your holiday itinerary.
Widely known as the ‘Caribbean of Europe’, the region is the perfect Italian escape throughout the seasons! This stunning Italian region is a dream destination for beach-lovers and history-lovers alike, offering a variety of beautiful, sandy beaches as well as impressive museums and historic sites.
Head to the Tropea, on the region’s east coast, for gorgeous sandy beaches lapped by enticing turquoise waters. You can’t miss the impressive Santa Maria dell’Isola Church here – one of the town’s must-see icons – sitting magnificently on a rock overlooking the sea. Take a boat ride to the stunning Aeolian Islands from Tropea on your Calabria holiday too! View our holiday villas and apartments in and around Tropea today.
Choose Capo Vaticano, just a few kilometres from Tropea, for your dreamlike sunbathing spots, known for its azure waters and golden, sandy stretches. Or venture to the beautiful Praia a Mare beach resort in the west for pebbled shores, magnificent sea caves and irresistible waters…

Of course, there’s so much more to Calabria than its breathtaking sunbathing spots. The National Museum of Reggio Calabria is a must-visit here, housing an archaeological collection from sites in Magna Graecia. A handful of fantastic national parks can also be found across the region, offering great walking, hiking, horseback riding and biking opportunities (not to mention across the region’s mountain ranges too; the Aspromonte, Pollino, Sila and Serra).
While many choose Calabria as a sun-drenched escape, winter sports are also an enticing factor, with a handful of great ski resorts on offer too! There are 34.7km of slopes in the region, with resorts reaching up to 1877m. Popular ski resorts here include Camigliatello, Villaggio Palumbo and Gambarie.
Why not head to Dino Island, the larger of the two small islands in the Tyrrhenian off the coast of Calabria? Near to Praia a Mare, the island is hugely popular natural attraction, home to six impressive grottoes, accessible by canoe or paddleboat.
The region’s capital city of Catanzaro is a brilliant destination. This urban city offers an array of spectacular historic sights, a buzzing centre square and nearby pretty coastal towns to explore under the sun. Dubbed the ‘city of the two seas’ (overlooking the Ionian on the east and the Tyrrhenian on the west), Catanzaro is known for its fantastic watersports, from water-skiing to wind-surfing and glorious landscapes…

This beautiful coastal city is a paradise for nature-lovers in particular, home to spectacular mountain views and cascading waterfalls, including the Marmarico waterfalls, among the highest in Italy.

Calabria typically enjoys a beautifully warm climate, offering a fantastic, year-round destination. With hot, dry summers and mild winters, many choose to visit the region during the soaring hot season (from June to September) to truly take advantage of the gorgeous beaches, although the cooler season still offers hours of sunshine daily, with fewer crowds and queues…
