San Lucido

San Lucido is a typical village in Calabria by the sea. It has amazing architecture and history. It is popular for its traditional events like their annual summer carnival and beach clubs.


Verbicaro is a small village close to the sea. It is famous for its wine and famous annual box-car racing in August. The atmosphere is amazing in this town which also boasts of an interesting historical centre.


Calabria's "terrace by the sea". Due to its geographical position on steep risings of two prominent eroded limestone, it overlooks the coastline giving a breathtaking view of the emerald coloured waters, white sandy beaches. Have a prosecco in Piazza Cannone with friends at sunset....go for a swim or go shopping in Tropea's popular little boutiques or try its
traditional foods made with its local red onion!


Between the sea and the mountains, Cosenza is a city that boasts of an amazing historical centre with a castle and buildings that date back to the 12th century, as well as great shopping, food, and nightlife!
Visit its 12th century Duomo or admire the view of the city from its castle, "Castello Svevo" or enjoy an espresso from its most antique cafe'that dates back to 1801.
And if you're art lover, take a stroll along Corso Mazzini, and admire works of art by Salvatore Dali or Giorgio De Chirico at its open air museum.
