Villa news -> Tourism in Calabria
Calabria is the edge of the patriarchal traditions and oranges. This is the south of Italy, the Apennine toe of its boot, rests in the Ionian Sea, which, incidentally, for several years are considered perhaps the cleanest in the world. For the Italians themselves ,Calabria is the summer paradise: cheap and familiar. For foreigners, it is also a paradise, but with the devil in the neighborhood. Rest in the shadow of the mafia, tickles your nerves, but in the end all has a happy-end.
Calabria is considered one of the most powerful and most mysterious regions of Italy. It is said that it is invisible, as it is the reverse side of the moon. The road from the sea snake is screwed all the above in the mountains. Marvellous villas to rest can be found in the small mountain villages far away from untwisted hiking trails and live a very real Dons Corleone. Nobody here is alarmed to see visitors with cameras. They know their own worth and will not worry about trifles. Just politely they can ask where you are from. Italians themselves say that Calabria Mafia controlled 70% of the economy. But the tourist, if you keep yourself properly, is safe. It's like a movie about the mafia. Only, you're on the same side of the screen . "These mountain villages can be your highlight - the adventure tourism. But people there do not use foreign languages and you do not often hear. Most of the tourists in Calabria are Italians themselves," – says the adviser on Culture and Tourism of the City Hall campus, Crito Massimo Madara .
Calabria is for those tourists who are ready for adventure and extended routes in search of experience. We cross the Italian boot through and descend from the mountains where there is another sea - the Tyrrhenian, the Diamond Sea - Diamante town. There you can find a most unusual exhibition in the world - painting outdoors, painted directly on walls. They drew artists from all over the world and passed a special contest. Such a picture fits easily into a real window or door and becomes a canvas piece. The specter of communism hovers over the other Calabrian borough over a hundred miles from Diamonds. Stylus, a village at the top of the mountain is considered the birthplace of communism. Tommaso Campanella, the author of the treatise "Sun City" - the first of the communist utopia was born here. Here had to be the city of the sun. But the current style of the communist paradise in no way resembles. It is plain, God-forgotten hamlet, lost in the mountains. Get in some backwoods, where Makar is not chasing the calves, and forget about everything for a week. This is the essence of ecotourism, as it is called. It is very popular now, in Calabria. You do not live in the hotel from 2 to 5 stars, but you can rent a wonderful villa. Emerge from the outside world and become just part of the landscape. After all, I promised a happy ending.
