This Calabrian town was the home of Milo of Crotone, a renowned athlete much admired by Virgil. Pythagoras founded several communities of mathematicians here, who gradually became too powerful for the local rulers and were expelled to Metaponto. Annexed by Rome after the Second Punic War, Crotone is now a busy industrial port whose historic heart is rich in lavish palaces.
