Calabria lies at the extreme south-west tip of Italy, reaching over to prod Sicily from across the Messina Strait. The region is bordered by the Tyrrhenian and Ionian seas, and boasts more than 800 kilometres of coastline.
Defined by a central Apennine ridge with mountainous slopes of thick forest, the land marches down to the sea and landscapes of wild, unspoilt beauty (we've seen Calabria referred to as 'Scotland by the Mediterranean'. Hmm.).
The region has a rich heritage of artistic and architectural remains from the Greek-Roman age, on through the Empire of Byzantium, with further relics of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque influence.
World famous are the Bronzes of Riace in the National Museum at Reggio Calabria; these splendid Greek statues were dredged from the sea at the beginning of the early 1980's, and have become synonymous with Calabria.
