The city has ancient origins and according to some theories it was founded by the ancient Greek colony that later became Scolacium.

In fact, legend has it that Magna Graecia, located just a few hundred metres from the seafaring district of Catanzaro, was founded by Ulysses thanks to the area’s unique characteristics which made it an almost obligatory passing point between East and West.

Catanzaro, the capital of Calabria and of the ancient province of Calabria Ultra, is often referred to as the City between two seas. This is because of its location on the Isthmus of Catanzaro, Italy’s narrowest point, which separates the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts and is just 35 kilometres long.
