Or you could just sit back and see which of the truly excellent local wines goes best with your favourite Italian cuisine. And then you could reflect on the fact that this was really just the beginning...
There's enough to keep the most active folks happy in this part of the world, and to start with you might fancy seeing a bit more of it - from the air. Charter your own helicopter ride, or hot air balloon experience, for a fantastic birds-eye view of the nearby national parks, spectacular valleys, and historical ruins.
Ready for some more hot action - then take to the water in anything and everything from a ski boat, to a racing sailboat or luxury yacht. Soverato has perfect harbours whatever your aquatic tastes.
Of course you'll be wanting to keep the golf handicap up to scratch which you'll be doing on some of the best courses on this part of the Italian coast. But beware, top class designers have done their best to keep you on your toes, but then tomorrow is always going to be a better day. Calabria's spectacular geography by driving or flying up to Aspromonte where some of the world's must uncrowded skiing is waiting for you all year round. Ski snow and water in a single day!
And naturally, this being Italy, a rich cultural and artistic life is waiting to be explored, whether it is an up to date art exhibition or a classic concert in a fabulous setting. In fact this part of Italy is rapidly gaining a reputation as a place to go for new culture.
Then again you might want to take your culture sip by sip because the wine tastings at the region's top vineyards are not to be missed. Nor, without being the slightest bit snobbish, is the fun of sitting at a dinner table opposite regular VIP visitors such as Formula 1 boss Flavio Briatori and his wife Elisabetta Gregoraci or Juventus manager Claudio Raniera to be sneezed at, and if you have to wait a bit longer for the next celeb to wander by - so be it.
Take a moment or so to look back at the history of the region's fantastic 800 kilometre-long coastline and you will be amazed at just what a story is there, all waiting to be discovered. Indeed the history of Calabria, from Roman to Byzantine, or from Norman to Bourbon, can traced by the beautiful buildings and archaeological treasures they left behind.
Taking the time to appreciate just how much as happened to this part of southern Italy in just the last 2,800 years gives you pause for thought. For example, all those years ago the Greek empire was at the height of its civilisation and Calabria rivalled Athens as a centre of culture and learning. It's a little quieter now.
