Reggio di Calabria

Reggio di Calabria is the largest and oldest city in Calabria and is the second oldest city in Italy. It is located on the "toe" of the Italian peninsula and is separated from the island of Sicily by the Strait of Messina. It is situated on the slopes of the Aspromonte, a long, mountain range that runs up through the center of the region. Tourist attractions in Reggio are distributed between the Ionian coast (Costa Jonica), the Tyrrhenian coast (the Costa Viola, Purple Coast) and the Aspromonte mountain behind the city, which contains the natural reserve of Aspromonte National Park. The park offers an amazing panoramic view of the Strait of Messina from the snowy Mount Etna to the Aeolian Islands. The other sights include the Riace bronzes (two famous full-size Greek bronzes of nude bearded warriors that can be seen at the important National Museum of Greater Greece), Cathedral of Reggio Calabria, Aragonese Castle, Chiesa degli Ottimati ("Church of the Optimates"), walls of the ancient city, Villa Zerbi, remains of Roman baths, Pinacoteca Comunale ("Town Art Gallery") and San Gaetano Catanoso church.
