Project Description

Reggio Calabria

Located exactly on the tip of the boot and overlooking the Strait of Messina, the city of Reggio Calabria has an ancient history: it was, in fact, the first Greek colony in Southern Italy.
An accessible private van will offer roundtrip transportation from your hotel located in Calabria or Sicily or from the main stations, airports or ports up to the very center of Reggio Calabria, an ancient crossroads of goods and travelers, offering a magnificent view of Sicily, Mount Etna and the Aeolian Islands.

The Aragonese fortress, the civic art gallery and the planetarium, along with the many churches that house Antonello da Messina’s masterpieces, make Reggio Calabria a fascinating place to spend a full day on vacation.
The main cultural attraction of the city is the National Archaeological Museum, one of the most representatives of the so-called Magna Graecia in Italy.
Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible path designed specifically to let you fully immerse in the myths, legends and cultures that are intertwined within it.

The Museum houses the famous Riace Bronzes, one of the most important sculptural masterpieces of Greek art. Scholars believe that they were part of the cargo of a shipwrecked naval expedition and that these Bronzes were thrown overboard to lighten the load. Today, the Bronzes have been completely restored and are exhibited in a exclusive room where you can appreciate the splendor and plastic vigor, while the guide will tell you all about the stories and hidden legends concerning their discovery.
You will enjoy lunch in an elegant accessible restaurant offering gourmet dishes that revisit the traditional Calabrian menu. Served among columns, statues and marble floors, you will experience lunch in the midst of centuries of history.
