Luxury Holidays Crotone-Calabria, Italy

Along with a Greek school founded by Pythagoras and being the native land of the Olympic athlete Milo, Crotone has had a long and eventful history. It is amongst the most-renowned sites such as the Castle of Charles V that is situated in the ancient part of the city, and so is the Cathedral, which hosts important and precious artisan works.

The fortified walls of the castle are the historic city centre and the National Archaeological Museum, which exhibits unique items, including Hera’s treasures. Just a few miles from the city, you can visit the archaeological area of Capo Colonna, where the ancient temple of Hera Lacinia once stood.
