The  territory is predominantly mountainous and hilly. Here and there the land gently slopes down to the coast while in other parts there is a sheer drop down to the sea. . The coastline presents rugged landscapes of majestic beauty. The majority of the inhabitants are involved in agricultural activities. The region has a rich heritage from the various civilizations: Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance style.

My Suggestions:

In Reggio Calabria, capital of the region, visit The National Museum of Magna Grecia” with Paleolithic, Byzantine and Arab art. In the Museum visit also the two famous full-size Greek Bronze ( called “Bronzi di Riace”) dating about  460/430 B.C discovered recently (1972) by a young scuba diving . Further the National Park of Sila one of the most charming and wildest sceneries  of Italy with wonderful forests and beautiful views of the two  coasts, Jonian and Tyrrhenan seas.
