Calabria elected among the top destinations for 2016

Italoamericano.org THE ITALIAN Region of Calabria has been elected among the top 10 regions to visit this year. As announced by the travel website RoughGuides, there are ten destinations to not miss in 2016 and one of them is in Italy. The explanations says as follow: Charming resorts along two gorgeous coastlines, rustic mountain villages and peperoncino-heavy cuisine make this region a favourite below-the-radar Italian holiday destination. But, until now, Calabria’s tourism has been primarily domestic. Historically underdeveloped, this stretch of the far south was long neglected and remains somewhat marginalized, with the ‘Ndrangheta mafia still a powerful presence across parts of the region. However, this year new budget flights from Turin to Lamezia Terme, along with websites like Airbnb, are opening up even the most rural towns to adventurous travellers seeking another side of Italy. Homes heated by wood fires, organic farm-to-table food, local wines, uncrowded Mediterranean shores and unparalleled hospitality wait as reward.
