Ensure you have plenty of time and drinks to get the most out of this site - top tip the English interpretations are on the rear of the Italian signs & it may mean standing on the grass to read the descriptions of each exhibit.

This is a fabulous site where ancient ruins have been (and are still being) unearthed. The museum is modern and filled with many amazing artifacts which have been found during excavations. The grounds, however were quite overgrown and not well signposted. When we made our...More

Another attraction you really can't miss when in the Reggio area, it is the Locri Archaelogical Site with its small annexed Museum. At approximately the 104th km on the SS 106 Jonica, this site represented one of Italy's most important Greek Colonies, Locri Epizephiry, the...More
