Holiday at the toe of the boot
The western part of Calabria entices with dream beaches, impressive cliffs and hot springs. But also many pretty little towns - such as Catanzaro, Reggio Calabria and Amantea - attract visitors with typical southern Italian charm, fine food and the odd sight.
There’s little risk of meeting crowds of tourists at the toe of the boot that makes Italy. Widely considered an insider tip, Calabria is, above all, a holiday destination enjoyed by the Italians themselves. Lamezia Terme Airport is an ideal starting point for travel in Calabria – to suit one’s personal taste.
