Reggio is located on the "toe" of the Italian Peninsula and is separated from Sicily by the Strait of Messina. Reggio is the oldest city in the region, and despite its ancient foundation (Ρηγιον was an important and flourishing colony of Magna Graecia) it boasts a modern urban system. Reggio, with Naples and Taranto, is home to one of the most important archaeological museums, the prestigious National Archaeological Museum of Magna Græcia, dedicated to Ancient Greece (which houses the famous Bronzes of Riace, rare example of Greek bronze sculpture, which became one of the symbols of the city).
The city center, consisting primarily of Liberty buildings, has a linear development along the coast with parallel streets, and the promenade is dotted with rare magnolias and exotic palms.
Hi everyone! My name is Rocco and I was born in Reggio Calabria in 1986. I study Cognitive Science in Messina and I love travelling and making new experiences. I listen to rock, grunge, hip hop and jazz music, I enjoy clubs and pubs with live music for a nice beer with friends. I decided to become an insider because I have already done it since 2010 on my own. It is always a pleasure sharing with other people the passion for my city, its history and its wonderful natural places. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
