Way down to the sea

I've always wondered why people in the past, in the southern part of Calabria at the bottom of Italy, had to build town way up in the mountains instead of settling near the coast.
Some would argue it's because of defence and military reasons. Although in the past we know there were many fortified cities in a plane or fairly near to the sea.
What do you think?
