Gioia Tauro
 
Gioia Tauro

Gioia Tauro (Metauros formally a Greek city during the Magna Graecia era) is a growing village by the sea in the province of Reggio Calabria. Gioia Tauro is located between Naples and Palermo, the next closest town is Palmi which is 7 Km due south. Palmi was discovered at the turn of the century by the English aristocracy and today is considered the jewel of the Costa Viola for its trendy shopping and sandy beaches. Gioia Tauro is located in the gulf of Gioia, (it holds the second largest port in Europe after Rotterdam). On a clear day, you can see Sicily and the Aeolian islands AKA Lipari Islands, from the Costa Viola. The Cittadella is the oldest part of Gioia Tauro where you can find St. Antonios Church and several baroque style buildings with beautiful portals; you can see the ruins of the necropolis in the contrada Petra (Petras Quarter) and the ruins of a roman villa. In Gioia Tauro Marina along the lungo mare is the century old Gaslini citrus plant.
