The main pride of local art is surely the Riace Bronzes, displayed in the National Museum of Reggio Calabria; those two rare bronze statue represents warrior heroes and they are an important remain of Greek period, when this land was a cultural and commercial centre.
Calabria offers a wide choice of beautiful beaches with its 780 km of coast. Capo Vaticano, for example, has been defined one of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world with its long clear sandy beach surrounded by Mediterranean scrub and the emerald sea.
The hinterland also offers a lot of opportunities. The National Parks of Sila, Serre, Aspromonte and Pollino are the most interesting nature destinations. The wild life of Sila, with a great vatiety of plants, or the creeks and boulders of Aspromonte (that litteraly means “rugged mountain”), or the rich fauna of Serre are just some of the natural wonders offered by this region.
