Calabria with its great range of attractions offers you an unforgettable experience
Tourists choosing Calabria as their journey destination are for the most part attracted by its 800 km of coasts. Calabrian coasts and beaches, from white sand to cliffs, offers different seaside resort opportunities within few kilometres distance.
