Cathedral, Reggio di Calabria

Cathedral, Reggio di Calabria Italy

Reggio di Calabria is a provincial capital in the southern region of Calabria. It's located at the toe of the Italian boot, little more than a hop, skip, and a jump from Sicily. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale Reggio Calabria is one of southern Italy's major museums. The focus is on Ancient Greece. For more information consult http://www.archeocalabria.beniculturali.it/archeovirtualtour/index.html

The city center hosts the National Museum of Magna Grecia, whose focus is also on Ancient Greece. This museum has undergone restauration, said to finish in March, 2011 according to the website. The prize exhibit is two statues of athletes, said to date from the Fifth Century B.C. For more information consult the Italian-only website http://www.museonazionalerc.it/home.htm and
