Our cultural and natural heritage
Immersing yourself in ancient history can be the best way to find out everything about the place you are visiting, and a guided tour of the Museum is the best way to do this!
Reggio Calabria is one of the places you absolutely cannot miss if you decide to visit Calabria.
Perhaps the best known reason for visiting the Museum is the presence of its splendid bronze statues, detailed and finely decorated, which have come down to us after centuries in the sea.
Suggestive and splendid, they are the pride of this magnificent building, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of their discovery, so being able to admire them becomes even more significant.
You will continue your visit to the city in a slightly unusual way. A walk with a botanical expert will lead you to discover the monumental trees of the Reggio Calabria promenade, more simply called “Via Marina” by its citizens as it flanks a long stretch of coastline overlooking the Strait of Messina. It also offers those who walk along it a breathtaking view of Sicily and the majestic volcano that towers above it, “Mount Etna”.
You will hear the story of this magical and enchanting place, about his joyous and painful days due to two devastating earthquakes that destroyed it several times, and you will be told the reason why the botanical garden was created here.
The beauty of this place, defined by Gabriele d’Annunzio as “the most beautiful kilometre in Italy”, seems to fear nothing. In fact, anyone who is lucky enough to see it will be both amazed and fascinated.
The phenomenon of Morgan le Fay has given rise to a legend that adds mystery to this place. The tour can be only complete with the tasting of an excellent ice-cream.
Gelateria Cesare is a small traditional kiosk right at the beginning of the promenade. Here is where the secret of the finest ice cream is kept, the continuous search for excellence and the enhancement of our territory’s products.
