Then witness panoramic city views at Castello Aragonese. Afterwards, take a stroll along Lungomare Italo Falcomatà, the main promenade, and attend a show at the seaside amphitheatre.
Hike through the Aspromonte National Park and watch for eagle owls and goshawks. Spend a day at Punta del Faro beach or go windsurfing. Pack your scuba gear and dive the Strait of Messina’s historic shipwrecks, including the Laura C and the Admiral Millo submarine. Swim with the seahorses.
Reggio Calabria enjoys a bustling nightlife. Explore the bars and pubs along the shoreline, but don’t limit yourself to beer and wine. Sample the cakes and gelato, too.
