Calabria facing the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west, the Ionian Sea to the east and south, north, marked by the massif of Pollino, Basilicata and borders, separated by the Strait of Messina to Sicily. It includes the provinces of Catanzaro (regional capital), Cosenza, Crotone, Reggio Calabria and Vibo Valentia.
The location was favorable for Calabria at the dawn of its history when, over two thousand years ago, the Greeks dominated the commerce of the Mediterranean Sea, after which the region became essentially a land of conquest. Unlike other maritime regions such as Liguria, Calabria was never able to benefit from its seas, is confirmed by the fact that four of its five main cities are located inland.
Surely the physical characteristics of Calabria are not particularly favorable. More than 90% of its territory consists of mountains and hills, the highest peak of the reliefs is that of Monte Pollino (2267 m). The few plains are restricted to coastal areas, long and narrow, sometimes swampy. At the Strait of Messina, the Sicilian and Calabrian coasts are just 3 km.
The two massifs are the most important and high Silas (1928 m) and the Aspromonte (1955 m), respectively located on the eastern side of the peninsula and southern Calabria. On the western front is edged Sila, Vallo beyond the crater, from the craggy crest of the Coast Mountains, about seventy miles long, culminates in Mount Cocuzzo (1544 m) but is a kind of wall that keeps the compact 1100 -1300 m share.
