What to do in Calabria

Calabria is one of those regions in Italy that’s perfect for a relaxing beach vacation. But guess what? There’s so much more to it than just sandy beaches and crystal-clear water. Think abandoned medieval villages, fascinating archaeological sites, top-notch museums, and national parks ideal for trekking and other outdoor activities. It’s an ideal spot for an adventurous holiday packed with discoveries. And let's not forget the mouth-watering local cuisine – renowned wines, and unforgettable cheeses. So, if you're up for a different kind of vacation, here are the top things to do in Calabria. The 6 best things to do in Calabria 1. Check out the Riace Bronzes

These statues are world-famous and a true symbol of beauty and harmony. Discovered in the 70s near Riace Marina, these Greek-origin bronze statues can now be admired at the National Archaeological Museum of Reggio Calabria. Besides these masterpieces, the museum offers a deep dive into the history of Magna Graecia and its ancient settlements in the area. 2. Explore charming villages

Calabria is dotted with medieval villages that feel straight out of a fairy tale. Take Gerace, for example, nestled in the Aspromonte National Park, offering breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea. Other equally charming stops are the villages of Pentedattilo, which remained completely abandoned for a long time, and Stilo – it’s got Arab-Norman influences and feels like it’s frozen in time. 3. Visit Tropea

Tropea isn’t just famous for its delicious red onions and spicy ‘nduja. This town on the Coast of the Gods is a real gem. Flanked by some of the most beautiful beaches in Southern Italy, Tropea boasts an elegant historic center, with 19th-century noble palaces and buildings scenically perched on white cliffs. The highlight? The Sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Isola, is perched on a piece of land that was once an islet. 4. Take a dip at Capo Vaticano

Capo Vaticano is a paradise for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. It’s home to some of the dreamiest beaches where you can relax and soak up the sun. The promontory offers incredible panoramic views all the way to Sicily. As if that weren't enough, the local cuisine is simply divine. 5. Go trekking in the Pollino National Park

This park spans a huge area of mountains and forests between Calabria and Basilicata. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pollino is a pristine place with various ecosystems and the highest peaks in Southern Italy. It's especially loved by those seeking wild landscapes for trekking, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities. The hiking network offers several trails for all experience levels. 6. Tour a vineyard Calabria has a rich winemaking history, dating back to when the area was known as “Enotria” – or, the Land of Wine during Magna Graecia. Today, the region produces fantastic DOP and DOC wines. Visiting a local vineyard is a must. You can learn about their history and winemaking techniques and, of course, taste some amazing wines right where they’re made.

Get ready to visit Calabria

What's the best time to visit Calabria?

The climate in southern Italy is mild all year round, but to fully appreciate the beauty of the region, it's best to visit in spring and summer. From June to September, the summer season is in full swing, making these months ideal for beach life and exploring the region's stunning beaches. However, be mindful of August, as coastal areas can get very crowded.

Depending on the type of holiday you're after, different parts of the region may suit you better. For a beach holiday, we recommend the beautiful Coast of the Gods, home to some of the area's most stunning beaches. If you're looking for a wilder, nature-focused holiday, camping in the Pollino is a perfect option to immerse yourself in Calabria's natural beauty. Lastly, for a cultural holiday, staying in Reggio Calabria provides easy access to museums and places of interest.

Where are Calabria's best beaches?

Calabria boasts an abundance of beaches, each with its own unique charm. Among the most beautiful and famous are the white beaches of Grotticelle at Capo Vaticano and Marina dell’Isola in Tropea. Dino Island offers pristine beaches, lush vegetation, and an amazing underwater world, making it a perfect spot for diving or snorkelling. In Pizzo Calabro, you'll find crystal-clear waters, comfortable beaches, and delicious gelato to cool off during hot afternoons.
