Perched in the ‘toe’ of Italy’s ‘boot’, the sleepy region has remained untouched by tourism. Visit here and you can explore stunning landscapes of national parks that are home to rare birds and delicate wild flora. Or drive along the coastal roads that hug the cliff side and offer sensational views over the crystal-clear waters towards the Aeolian Islands.

If rest and relaxation are on the agenda, then Calabria won’t disappoint with plenty of sandy beaches framed by crystalline waters and sleepy fishing villages where you can stop for an authentic lunch. Seaside towns like Tropea are ideal for an afternoon stroll to stretch your legs or perhaps indulge in an afternoon prosecco in a local café. And Capo Vaticano boasts some of the most stunning coastlines of Calabria, perhaps even Italy itself.
