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.

It was a breath of fresh air – a great place to enjoy the peace and quiet or to partake in top notch wine tasting and dining, depending on what you’re looking for. One could easily spend a week or two exploring Tuscany alone, but as always, we felt a need to keep moving on.
