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.
