The Calabria region
The area is mountainous and full of remote villages (with something of a history as nests of the local Mafia, the still-powerful 'Ndrangheta). The region's smaller towns and villages and rural areas have a lot of historic charm. The great cities of Magna Graecia have all but vanished: fighting and conquest, followed by malaria and earthquakes saw to their destruction. Among the region's remaining curiosities are Greek-speaking villages, and an Albanian community dating back five hundred years.
It's the seaside that attracts most of Calabria's summer visitors nowadays: the region has 780km of coast, facing onto two seas, the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian. The regional capital is Catanzaro.
Temperatures in the summer are very hot, although the mountains get covered with snow in winter months.
If you're in Calabria, you shouldn't miss the chance to admire the fantastic collection of Greek and Roman sculptures and artefacts in the museum at Reggio Calabria. Among the exhibits are the famous Riace bronzes, two Greek statues recovered from the seabed. The most appealing resort in the area is Tropea, a lovely seaside town with good views. Scilla is another interesting seaside resort, while Cosenza can offer the final resting place of Alaric the Goth, a castle, a Gothic cathedral and some Byzantine religious art.
Hikers and lovers of the outdoors will be less interested in the beaches and more interested in the region's national parks. The Sila is a high-level plain with lakes, rolling hills and woodland, while the Aspromonte is like a rocky backbone to the region.
One of the most beautiful and famous towns in the Vibo Valentia district of Calabria, and one of the most picturesque areas on the southern coast, is Pizzo . The town is situated on a high promontory overlooking the Gulf of Sant'Eufemia on the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Pizzo, a fishing town whose fish find their way to the menus of many famous restaurants throughout Italy, was built on the ruins of Napitia, a colony of an ancient tribal group, the Focesis. It has a long, illustrious history. According to local lore, Cicerone visited and St. Peter stopped on his journey to Rome.
The historical centre of Pizzo is characterized by narrow lanes and streets with many interconnecting stairways. At the intersection of many of these lanes and streets, one finds several squares, some with fountains. There are numerous palazzi (mansions) once owned by rich merchants and other members of the higher classes, with interesting architectural detail.
Of course, you will encounter a number of churches as you make your way around the town including the Little Church of the Piedigrotta (see side bar). Look for the airy piazza, the Spuntone, where you can admire the imposing Aragonese castle in the distance, as well as take in a wide view of the sea from Lamezia to Capo Vaticano.
Pizzo is becoming an ever popular tourist resort town thanks to its mild, sunny climate and to the stunning coastline, where there are many attractions and activities for locals and travellers alike. Many of these can be better appreciated as you lick the Tartufo gelato for which the town is justifiably famous. At lunch or dinner try a glass (or two!) of the local wine, know as "Zibibbo".
