Calabria to taste

Calabria to taste it's a different way to discover this land so full of traditions which you find also in the food and typical products. Often they use the Red Hot Pepper, the hottest in Southern Italy, as symbol for representing this region: in fact in the second week of September they celebrate the red hot pepper with a special festival in Diamante, a touristic place on the Northern Tyrrhenian coast of Cosenza.

"The Cedars Riviera" is the name of this stretch of coast, so called for the presence of this plant which has found over there the ideal climate for growing up. The Cedar is a fruit which belongs to the citrus species: it's considered sacred by the Jewes who go there every year for choosing the best sample and use it in their religious rite.

On the Ionian Coast, nearby Rossano, it grows up the liquorice: it's used as base of perfumes, like the bergamot, for making liqueurs and in cuisine, very good for who suffer of low pressure.

Along the central part of the Tyrrehenian Cost, from Amantea to Capo Vaticano, we find the Red Onion of Tropea, which was imported by the Phoenicians more than 200 years ago and whose main characteristic is the sweetness.

At the bottom of the region and the whole Italian boot, in the province of Reggio Calabria, it grows up the bergamot, another fruit of the citrus family: it's used mostly as base of the perfumes and Calabria is the best producer in the word for its high quality.

Well known from the ancients as "Enotria" which means The Land of the Wine, Calabria produces a very good wine: there are several companies which welcome tourists and travellers for sightseeing of their vineyards and cellars by offering to them a tasting of their different typologies of wine.

The hill of the region are covered by olive groves so Calabria is also famous for the high quality Extra Virgin Oil.
