In the middle of the southern heart of the Region of Calabria, south of Cosenza and north of Reggio Calabria, Vibo Valentia is a little peninsula on the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its roots are lost in Antiquity; a city of culture, it offers beautiful, untamed places alive with history.

The Province includes 50 municipalities and extends over the Tyrrhenian coast and through the Serre Mountains, including the great farm district of the Poro plateau. Vibo Valentia was originally the Greek colony of Hypponion until 192 AD. The province was established in 1992 and owes its charm to the cobalt blue sea and the verdant plateaus backdropped by the Serre Mountains.

The Gulf of Sant’ Eufemia to the north and the Gulf of Gioia Tauro to the south are surrounded by hills and mountains. The pure natural landscape has been cultivated only by the hands of local farmers. Vibo Valentia’s spectacular panoramic views span from orderly, yet shady olive groves and scented cornfields to orange and lemon groves offering their aromatic fruits all year long. Imagine, if you can, the hillside vineyards, oscillating cane fields blown by the sea breeze, and the amazing scent of flowering orange blossoms during hot summer nights.

As one moves place to place, it is easy to make one charming discovery after another. For instance, the Costa degli Dei, a rugged coastline full of rocky inlets and sandy spot. The hinterland is dominated by the Serre Massif, and by forests thick in conifers, beechwoods, brooks, wide valleys and green plateaus.
