Are you planning a holiday in Calabria? Then get ready to plunge into a breathtaking nature and be spoilt for choice between mountains and sea. If the Sila, and its National Park, is the most popular mountain destination in Calabria, then Tropea is usually referred to as Thyrrenian sea pearl for the beauty of its beach and landscape. From Tropea you may easily reach Stromboli, in the Aeolian islands archipelago, or carry on along Costa degli Dei (literally, Gods coast), whose name comes from the beauty of this coastline, where splendid inlets and larger amazing beaches led to the famous Capo Vaticano bathing place.
If you prefer visiting Calabria up-country instead of a holiday at the sea, then the Sila National Park is a popular tourist destination you shouldn't miss out: it's one of the most suggestive area of Calabria, in large part covered by forests, where you may catch sight of high variety of animals wildlife.
Since Greeks settled along Calabria coast and many cities of this region were part of Magna Grecia, you may also go on a discovery of an ancient art (besides the beautiful natural landscape), whose most internationally renowned works of art are the Bronzi di Riace (literally, Riace bronzes), the two full-size Greek bronzes of nude warriors which were found in 1972 on the bottom of the sea and are now preserved in Magna Grecia National Museum in Reggio Calabria.
