Southern Italy region
Calabria is a narrow peninsula extending into the heart of the Mediterranean for three hundred kilometres. It is located at the tip of the "boot" between the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west and the Ionian Sea and Gulf of Taranto to the east. It is separated from Sicily by the Straight of Messina, where the narrowest point between Capo Peloro in Sicily and Punta Pezzo in Calabria is only 3.2 km (1.2 m).
Although the sea seems ever present in Calabria, it is mainly a mountainous region. Three mountain ranges are present: Pollino, the Sila, and Aspromonte. All three mountain ranges are unique with their own wildlife.
The main tourist draws in Calabria are the coastline and the mountains. The coastline alternates between rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, and is sparsely interrupted by development when compared to other European seaside destinations. The sea around Calabria is impressively clear and will provide hours of enjoyment for holiday makers and locals alike.

Marina di Gioiosa Ionica
The town of Gerace is approximately a 20 minute drive from my apartment and has impressive cobblestone streets in addition to a 17th century church. It’s Byzantine and medieval architecture has remained unaltered. Rich of monument, churches and buildings of ancient noble, in which the cathedral, the church of San Francesco with its beautiful marble, the church of Santa Anna, the remains of the Norman castle and ancient walls. It is not only famous for the ambiance but rather the unique style of ice cream called “granite” which everyone should experience!
The attractions go on; within a 40 minute drive you can also visit the beautiful seaside resort of Tropea. Marina di Gioisa comes alive with the festival of “the Madonna Del Carmine”. It is held annually on the 3rd Sunday of August. It is a captivating day and a not to be missed! It commencies in the morning taking the Madonna out of the church, procession, and a procession at sea, with boats to follow, parachutes come down from airoplanes and the night comes to a climax with the best firework display you have ever seen!
On September 1st, another famous festival is held. This one is called “festa di San Rocco". It is a feast of dancing all day! The night is enjoyable for rides and mercato (flea market). The mercato is held in our town every Wednesdays where you will find everything from food, to clothes, shoes and household items. The nightly “lungo mare” holds rides for the kids, eateries and cafes/pubs. Rocella is the next town which holds a very good jazz festival.
