Located on the “toe of Italy’s boot”, it’s home to 781 kilometers (485 miles) of coast. Being closer to North Africa than San Francisco to Santa Barbara, the region gets 300 to 320 sunny days a year, which makes it a nice all-year-round destination.
Coastline and hills, sunshine all day, rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, delicious Italian food and spicy regional dishes- Calabria has it all.
