Solo Traveler in Calabria

A trip to Calabria, the beautiful region in Italy, is an ideal destination for solo travelers. With its crystal blue waters, amazing nearby mountains, and awe-inspiring ancient architectures, Calabria has something for everyone.

The best way to explore the region is to rent a car. This allows travelers to freely explore the villages and countrysides of the region and go wherever they please. Make sure to head to the seaside and take advantage of the Mediterranean Seaways for a beautiful drive along the coast.

Make sure to explore the many ancient sites around Calabria, such as the ruins of the Greek colony of Sybaris. This archaeological site contains the ruins of a Greek city that was founded in 720 BC.

For a unique and immersive experience, head to Bivongi, an ancient fortified village situated on an elevated hill surrounded by olive groves. Don’t miss a visit to the Villa Romana del Casale, the extensive Roman villa whose ruins have been preserved and conserved since the early 19th century.

Pack your bathing suits and jump into the crystal blue waters of Calabria. Enjoy picture-perfect views of the beaches, perfect for sunbathing and swimming.

Whether its for a day or a longer stay, Calabria is a wonderful destination for anyone looking to experience the beauty and culture of the Italian countryside.
