The Calabria region is suitable for bleisure tourism due to its accommodation facilities located in settings that can combine work with leisure. Located in bucolic spots or overlooking the sea they are the ideal place for meetings, conventions and corporate travel. The landscape in this region make it suitable for multiple experiences: from aquatic to mountainous, from sports activities to orienteering and barefooting.
For corporate guests wishing to travel with the family, Calabria is the leading region for child-friendly beaches and third for Blue Flag beaches. With its three National Parks, canyons, waterfalls, lakes, and adventure parks, Calabria also lends itself to adrenaline sports and team-building experiences.
On the Costa dei Saraceni the city of Crotone and the towns of Capo Rizzuto, Le Castella and Cirò are considered the most important tourist destinations. This is where most of the tourist and accommodation facilities are concentrated along with the enormous historical and archaeological heritage made up of castles and museums. This area of Calabria is known for its wines, sandy beaches, medieval villages and the presence of one of the most important centres of Magna Graecia, an archeological marine park submerged in water but clearly visible to those who love to dive. The promontory of Capo Colonna, entirely covered by the remains of the Temple of Hera Lacinia is an out of town mecca for the Kroton (Crotone) area. The current excavation area covers 30 hectares of land (within the walls of Roman era) and 20 hectares of woodland and Mediterranean scrub. The figures of Pythagoras (at the time of the Italiot League) and Hannibal (who departed from here to return to Carthage) are linked to this place. Furthermore, on the Costa dei Saraceni, there is one of Italy's largest Marine Protected Reserves, the Marine Protected Area of Capo Rizzuto.
Among the main centres to visit there is certainly Santa Severina which has been awarded the title of one of Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages. Its historic centre, perched on a tufa spur, dominates the Neto Valley and is distinguished by the encased structure divided into two districts, Grecìa and Ludea, and surround the main architectural symbols of the town: the Norman Castle and the Cathedral of Sant'Anastasìa with its Baptistery, the latter being the oldest Byzantine monument in Calabria. Another not to be missed town also awarded the title of one of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy is Cacurri. This medieval centre is also famous for the homonymous Literary Prize born thanks to the Caccuriani Academy.
