Discover CalabriaThe "tip" of the boot

The toe of the Italian boot, Calabria is southern Italy at its very best. Blazing sunshine, dramatic mountains, stunning coastlines and a particularly strong food culture makes it one of the best places to eat in the country. Here are some of the ingredients, flavours and dishes that have turned it a world-class culinary destination (plus some recipes so you can recreate them at home). The largest city is Reggio Calabria, on the coast, where the National Archaeological Museum and the Bronzes of Riace are located, two famous Greek warriors of the fifth century BC.
