Calabria is a region in the south of Italy and part of the country’s boot-shaped peninsula.
It lies on the Tyrrhenian Sea, which separates it from Sicily to its west. Calabria has been an important area since ancient times; it was once known as Magna Graecia for being heavily populated by Greek colonies during antiquity.
The landscape of Calabria consists mostly of mountains with some plains along its coastlines where much of its economy revolves around fishing and tourism due to stunning beaches with crystal clear waters.
