RV Campervan Reggio Calabria
RV Campervan Reggio Calabria we have a wide selection of current Campervans available at our local rental depot. Attractive Reggio di Calabria is located on the southern “toe” of the peninsula, close to Sicily. It nestles at the foot of the craggy mountains, dipping into the azure waters of the Straits of Messina. It is the second oldest city in Italy overall (Cumae having seniority), and is often overlooked in favour of the more famous resorts. However, if you prefer travelling through Italy as it really is, rather than with throngs of tourists, this may well be the starting point for you.
Reggio di Calabria is a sizable port town that still retains some sense of its rural roots, with agriculture and fishing both important to its survival and prosperity. Its lovely beaches are the source of its international attractions however. Reggio Calabria was established by the Greek settlers here in around 720BCE. “Rhegion” was important and powerful, famed for great artistic and cultural endeavours, notably the Pythagorean school, as well as sculpture and poetry schools. Later, she was a noble Roman city, until devastated by earthquakes, and then was capital of the Byzantine conquests on the peninsula. For hundreds of years through the middles ages, she was the prize of constant struggle between Saracens and Lombards, and Normans and Byzantines.
In Reggio itself, there are plenty of things to see and do. The National Museum of Greater Greece contains the Riace Bronzes, something that attracts many visitors. The outdoor tourism is split between the Costa Viola, the Ionian Coast (Costa Jonica) and the higher reaches of the Aspermonte National Park, from which 1400m asl can be seen a wonderful panoramic view of the Straits of Messina.
