Forming the toe of Italy's "boot," Calabria is considered the Caribbean of Europe and may very well be the country's best-kept secret. Visitors can find everything from beaches to Byzantine churches here. Hillside towns, ancient Greek temples, and medieval castles and palaces are just some of the attractions scattered around one of the country's least-developed regions. Calabria remains largely unblemished by mass tourism, with many charming places to visit like olive plantations, orange groves, waterfalls, and lakes. Because it's bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on three sides, the water plays a huge role in the region's culture and cuisine. Calabria is also an up-and-coming producer of fine wines.
