Passionate and generous, Italy shows its visitors its many different faces. An emblematic country of culture, art and good cooking, it’s also a holiday destination par excellence for all those who are looking to relax in the sun, for active holidays by the sea or cultural excursions. From the Adriatic to Calabria, passing by the Gulf of Sorrento, from Sicily to Sardinia, you can find the same passion for life everywhere, the famous “dolce vita” which celebrates beauty and happiness.
This region at the tip of the ‘Italian boot’ offers very beautiful beaches at the foot of wild cliffs and idyllic bays with hidden charm. Bathed by an azure blue sea on three sides, Calabria offers high temperatures, even in autumn. The delightful seaside resorts such as the medieval village of Tropea or the charming Capo Vaticano welcome visitors with many popular festivals and the delicious delicacies of the region.
Perched on a rock 42 m high, this charming little town is also nicknamed the ‘Pearl of Calabria’. A quintessentially Italian atmosphere is waiting for you in the many little streets, the many shops on the Corso Vittorio Emanuele and in the friendly restaurants and coffee shops with their lively nightlife. Allow yourself to be seduced by the charming streets with their ancient arches and don’t hesitate to visit the church of Santa Maria dell’Isola built on a rocky outcrop. Steps lead down to a beautiful sandy beach below. Lamezia Terme airport is around 60 km away.
Capo Vaticano dominates the sea from the top of a cliff and offers unforgettable panoramic views of the coastline with many romantic bays, the Stromboli volcano and the Aeolian Islands. There are beautiful hotel complexes, restaurants and little coffee shops dotted along the coast. Around 70 km from Lamezia Terme airport.
The little village of Zambrone is right next to the sea. The beautiful sandy beach is in the district of Marina di Zambrone, around 4 km long and ideal for a successful stay by the seaside with all the family. Tropea is around 12 km, Lamezia Terme airport is around 50 km away.
Little seaside resort on the west coast of Calabria which has 7,000 inhabitants. It is located around 16 km from Lamezia Terme, the closest large town. Set off to discover the Sila nature park with its little lakes, streams and forests.
The journey towards the south along the Calabrian coast is a dream in itself. Wonderful panoramic views of the bays, beaches and cliffs alternate with little charming villages with unique charm, always accompanied by an unobstructed view of the Straits of Messina and Sicily. At the southern tip of Italy, you will make the crossing towards Messina. The visit to the beautiful town of Taormine is the high point of this day.
An unforgettable excursion! This mini-cruise will take you along the Tyrrhenean coast towards the 3 Sicilian islands of Vulcano, Lipari and Stromboli with its still-active volcano.
God of the Winds and Lands of Fire!
On the island of Vulcano with its still-active volcano, you will have the possibility of taking a walk or even a sulphurous mud bath in one of the island’s many springs. Lipari, with its 11,000 inhabitants, is the largest of the Aeolean Islands and also offers the most varied landscapes. You have a breathtaking view approaching the island by boat: steep, inaccessible cliffs intersected by unfathomable gorges adorned with absolutely beautiful Mediterranean vegetation. An excursion around the island will allow you to discover the natural diversity of this little bit of land and will reveal some magnificent viewpoints. If you prefer, you can also stay in the little town of Lipari and discover its charms while wandering in its charming streets. On this occasion, be sure not to miss visiting its castle, whose construction goes back to the Middle Ages. The fortified citadel, cathedral, ruins of an amphitheatre and most particularly the Museum of Archaeology with its beautiful collection of pieces dating from antiquity are all witnesses of a turbulent past!
Stromboli, the ‘black giant’ reaching 950 m above sea level and hiding another 2,000 m underwater, is one of the highest active volcanoes in Europe. Eruptions take place at regular intervals and the incandescent lava looks for a path towards the sea on the northern face of the crater - a breathtaking show, especially after sunset!
From the coast, you will climb up to an altitude of 800 m to visit the little mountain village of Serra San Bruno, a real haven of peace and inhabited by monks. A visit to the museum will teach you more about their way of life. Then, a lovely walk along the pilgrimage trail to the sacred place called ‘Santa Maria del Bosco’, a miraculous spring which cures diseases and grants wishes! Continue towards Pizzo. Before beginning your walk in the old town, visit the church of ‘Piedigrotta’ dug into the tufa rock face. Taste the local speciality - the famous ‘Tartufo’ ice-cream!
Costa degli dei – the ‘Coast of the Gods’!
With rocks tumbling into a turquoise sea, spectacularly beautiful deserted creeks, unique panoramas and a whole festival of lights and colours, Capo Vaticano is one of the most beautiful locations in Calabria and above all one of the most romantic!
After visiting Capo Vaticano, the excursion continues in the direction of Tropea, the ‘Pearl of the Tyrrhenean Sea’. You will visit the old historic centre huddled on a rocky promontory, offering a magnificent view of the pretty beaches below and of the small island housing the sanctuary of Santa Maria dell’ Isola. Majestic palazzi, narrow streets with washing hanging across them, the smell of salami and cheese, fresh herbs, peperoncini and red onions coming out of the many artisanal stalls… that’s Tropea - quintessential Italy! (Tasting of regional specialities included).
