Holiday in Calabria

In southern Italy's Calabria, vacationers experience the many different facets of this beautiful country. Culinary specialties usually play a central role, because true Italians celebrate pleasure! Especially the small fishing villages and old towns offer tasty, authentic dishes in nice restaurants, which can be perfectly combined with a relaxed stroll through narrow alleys or along idyllic harbors. Other excursion options range from national parks to volcano visits, presenting lush vegetation and scenic features along the way. Calabria is, of course, particularly popular for its dream beaches with crystal-clear water, whose color spectrum ranges from light turquoise to emerald green. Hidden bays and two seas that meet here allow perfect bathing pleasure, far from mass tourism.


At the southernmost tip of the Italian mainland - the tip of the boot, so to speak - is the versatile region of Calabria. Due to the influence of three climate zones and the surrounding seas, a subtropical, hot climate predominates, providing the perfect breeding ground for bergamots, mushrooms and olives, which thrive magnificently alongside palms and cacti.

Surrounded by both the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas, crisscrossed by rugged mountain landscapes, home to picturesque bays and sleepy as well as vibrant towns, Calabria is a thoroughly diverse vacation destination. Experience Italy from its authentic side. The island of Sicily lies just off Calabria - separated only by the Strait of Messina. The Lipari Islands, on the other hand, include the volcanic island of Stromboli, whose crater of the same name can be climbed in its entirety. During a late afternoon hike, those interested can see a true fire spectacle after the sun has set.
