Stay in Calabria

One Day

Stay in Reggio Calabria and explore the region’s biggest city. It’s a metropolis equipped with stunning beaches, sprawling streets, and botanical public gardens. Make sure Castello Aragonese and the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia, with its Bronzi di Riace, are on your must-see list.

Three Days

Mammola is Calabria’s cultural and artistic capital. Its streets are lined with cafes and restaurants that fuel its gastronomic reputation. Be sure to tour the famous art museum the MUSABA. For a break from the city head to the Polino mountain range and immerse yourself in some rural comfort only found in the south.

One Week

Take a week off and stay in one of Calabria’s world renowned seaside resorts. Scilla and Tropea are the most popular destinations featuring white sand beaches and tourquise shorelines. Santa Maria dell’Isola found along Tropea’s coast is a beachside sanctuary that seems to sum up Calabria in one iconic location.
