Self-Catering Holiday Rentals in Italy Calabria for Your Home Stay

Often called the Caribbean of Italy, the beautiful region of Calabria with its unspoiled sandy beaches and clear, blue waters is a wonderful vacation destination romantic breaks for two. Groups of friends will be sure to enjoy the fabulous beaches with a splendid range of water sports to choose from and its proximity to Sicily makes for excellent day trips. Visit fabulous Praia a Mare beach for days spent enjoying sun and sea and discover the Blue Grotto on the nearby small island of Dino where you can swim with the fish right into the cave. Catanzaro is the capital of the region and it's filled with exciting things to see such as the Catanzaro Bridge, the tallest arched bridge in Europe. See the Duomo, the cathedral was built over the remains of a Norman church during the 16th century, and although it was bombed during the Second World War, it has now been restored. Inside, the statue of 'Madonna with Child' by 16th century artist Antonello Gagini da Messina is a favourite attraction for visitors. Having your own holiday apartment or villa means that you're free to come and go as you please. Visit the Archaeological Park of Roccelletta in the Borgia area overlooking the Gulf of Squillace where you can see lots of Roman remains and also an Antiquarium containing statues and other finds from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD as well as pottery thought to be from the Ancient Greek settlement of Skylletion which previously stood here and which date from the 6th century BC. This part of Calabria is known as the Nausicaa Riviera and it's spectacular, visit Le Castella at Isola Capo Rizzuto which is in a protected marine area. The stunning fortified remains are on a small island separated from the coast by a narrow strip of land and are definitely worth seeing on a trip from your holiday villa in the Calabria area. See Ancient Greek columns and remains at Capo Colonna and just enjoy the magnificent views and glorious scenery which is unlike any other part of Italy. The pretty resort of Soverato is another great place to visit, and due to its abundance of sea horses, the Soverato Bay marine park was created several years ago. Beautiful sandy beaches and plenty of facilities make it ideal for family days on the beach. There's also an interesting Mediterranean aquarium in Soverato which is sure to be a hit with children, or visit the excellent Botanic Gardens. Take a trip to Messina on the island of Sicily from Reggio di Calabria, or just explore Reggio itself. Walk along the beautiful promenade of Lungomare or visit the National Museum of Magna Greco to see the Bronze di Riaci, a pair of full size bronze sculptures of Greek warriors which were discovered in the waters of Riace Marina and which can now be seen in the museum. The entire area is rich in Roman and Ancient Greek historical sites and remains, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty on offer in the way of contemporary entertainment. The Teatro Communale Frencesco Cilea in Reggio has opera and concerts of different types on throughout the year and there are lots of excellent restaurants and bustling bars and nightclubs. Reggio is also the birthplace of the late fashion designer Gianni Versace and its art noveau buildings and sensational beaches make it a hit with visitors from all over Europe. Be sure to sample lots of the delicious Calabrian cuisine including the delicious ice-cream from Pizzo Calabro known as 'tartufo' and buy red onions from Tropea and fresh seafood and local cheeses and wines to enjoy back at your vacation home.
