    Things to do

    -Beaches. Marina di Caulonia is the town’s resort, sitting next to an unbroken stretch of coarse sandy beach backed by rugged hills. It’s always possible to find a quiet spot on the waterfront here, even at the height of summer. You can head a little way up the coast to resorts like Isca Marina and Marina di Davoli for other sublime sandy beaches.

    -Natural scenery. Calabria’s interior boasts impressive mountain landscapes, rivers and pine forest, home to challenging or light looped trails for hikes and bike rides, ideal in the spring and autumn. Easily reached by car is the Aspromonte National Park, which protects the southern tip of Italy’s Apennine range, and provides a habitat for species like Bonelli’s eagle.

    -Food and drink. On the southern tip of Italy chilli is an important ingredient in many dishes, from pasta to stews. The fruit and vegetables produced here are also of high quality, especially aubergines, peppers and tomatoes, as well as a wide range of mushrooms in the upland Aspromonte region. Wine is also produced locally – Greco di Bianco is a famous dessert wine produced here .

    -History. Caulonia Superior, the historic old town, is perched atop a promontory 300 metres above sea level, with attractive squares and a tangle of narrow streets some of which can be very steep. Nearby Gerace boasts the ruins of a Norman castle from the 11th Century, as well as a spectacular cathedral from the same time.

    -Reggio di Calabria. This city is about an hour from Caulonia and well worth the drive. Here you can see the Bronzi di Riace, two life sized ancient Greek bronze sculptures discovered off the coast of Riaci Marina in the 1970s, and displayed at the Archaeological Museum since the early-80s.
