Reggio Calabria is the biggest city in the region of Calabria, and is situated in Southern Italy, at the west of the ‘boot’ shape that defines the coastline. The port is used to connect mainland Italy with neighbouring islands, including a crossing to Sicily’s east coast.
Incredible food and the remarkable national museum are the upper crust of the rugged city of Reggio Calabria. The all-encompassing history of Italy’s south is showcased in the myriad of artefacts, statues and relics that are heavily guarded, though there isn’t much beauty to see outside of the museum; an earthquake at the beginning of the 20th Century destroyed much of the infrastructure and, aesthetically, Reggio Calabria hasn’t quite recovered. Although the historical architecture may be lacking, the natural landscape across Lungomare Sea is brimming with precipitous rock formations and breathtaking views.
Whist some choose to drive along the coastal road, hiking the challenging walking trails provides the most satisfaction. Few feelings better the sense of accomplishment that materialises from climbing the steep hills underneath the rays of the Mediterranean sun, especially in the summer when the weather lends itself to an afternoon stroll. After working up an appetite ascending the mountainside, sample some of the best food in Magna Graecia at the number of fine quality restaurants, typically serving seafood fresh from the water.
Bus services are in operation around the city centre, with tickets usually proving very affordable.
