Still on the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the direction of Reggio Calabria, there is the Costa Viola, so called because the sea is
violet and at sunset the sky is tinged with violet. The magnificent, sunny beaches of the Ionian coast mark the many stages
of Calabria's fascinating history; Bova, Roghudi, Roccaforte del Greco, Condofuri, with their hill villages which once
sheltered the population from the incursions of the Saracens. Up along the Ionian coast, the Magna Graecia intertwines with
the subsequent Byzantine influence: Locri, Gerace, Caulonia, Riace, the home of the famous Bronzes, Monasterace, Punta Stilo,
Guardavalle, Soverato, Copanello, Squillace - the birthplace of Cassiodorus - Capo Colonna, Crotone, where Pythagorus
taught, Ciro, Magna Graecia's land of wine, Punta Alice to the magnificent town of Sibari.
At Calabria, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
