The city of Crotone is the provincial capital of the Ionian coast, the renowned Costa dei Saraceni, and includes the hilly middle area of the so-called Marchesato, characterised by lunar gullies that are well worth visiting.

The beating heart of the city of Crotone? Pythagoras Square, named after the symbolic figure: Crotone is to all intents and purposes the "City of Pythagoras". Founded by Greek colonists from Achaia in the 8th century B.C., ancient Kroton was one of the most powerful poleis of Magna Graecia, home to the excellent Pythagorean School built by the great Greek philosopher and mathematician around 530 B.C.
