Tour in Calabria, a long journey to explore the best
This long tour in Calabria is a fantastic chance to approach the wonder of some medieval villages and the important presence of Greek and Roman archeological heritage. We will also visit the highest touristic appeal destinations, such as Tropea, Scilla and Gerace. We’d like to propose some days of intense experiential tourism (trekking in Sila and a “Calabrian Day” in Jacurso) and some of the most famous gastronomy “stars” – Must Taste!!

Dress CodeYou should wear sports shoes, you will often walk on cobblestones of the historic centers. If you choose to go hiking in the national parks in spring-summer-autumn, carry a tracksuit and trekking shoes with you in your luggage. If you do it in winter, you can rent - on site - snow boots, poles and snowshoes, to walk better. For those who will not resist the aquatic temptation: it is a must to bring a beach towel (and a change of clothes).

Codex Purpureus in ROSSANO, archeological park and museum in SIBARI, castle of CORIGLIANO
In the morning, before 10, we'll arrive in the historic center of Rossano to visit a very rare manuscript. We will see something special, in detail: the colorful miniatures of the Codex Purpureus, a collection of Gospels written in the Byzantine age. The drawings on the parchment are so sharp, a masterpiece of art. After Rossano, we will reach archeological museum of Sibari. A glass case protects the Toro Cozzante, rare bronze exhibited for months at the Egyptian Museum in Turin. Then we visit the archeological excavations. On the site there are the remains of the Roman colony of Copiae. The underlying layers hide the Greek colony called Thurii, founded after the annihilation of the great Sybaris in 510 BC., which was the first one on this site.
Lunch in a restaurant. At around 4 pm you can visit the Licorice Museum close to Rossano Calabro, by Amarelli company, a worldwide recognized successful team.
At 4.40 pm we will be at the majestic ducal castle in Corigliano Calabro. The works that gave the castle much of its current configuration - a quadrangular structure similar to the Maschio Angioino in Naples - were started during the Aragonese government. In the 1600’s it became a sumptuous noble residence. In the mid-1800’s baron Luigi Compagna called Ignazio Perricci from Monopoli, who built a fantastic hall of mirrors in the throne room. Perricci created beautiful decorations. The ceiling is frescoed with a "trompe-l'oeil" effect. Upturned eyes, look at that awesome open perspective on a starry sky - known as “The stage of life”. It gives a feeling of three-dimensionality.
