About Lamezia Terme
Lamezia Terme is closely associated with the sea. The town is surrounded by white, unpolluted beaches and beautiful bays both of the tyrrenian (to the west) and the Jonio side (to the east). Moreover, the upper plain of the Sila to the north, with its stunning mountains and alpine landscape, is rich in forests and lakes.
In the area around Lamezia Terme, there are also important artistic sites and Greek, Norman and Roman temples, as well as palaces from the Bourbon times.
The coastal road, from Pizzo Calabro to Capo Vaticano – called Costa degli Dei, Gods’ Coast – through Tropea, is one of the most beautiful in Italy; furthermore, the latter town is famous for its characteristic town centre which looks out spectacularly onto the sea. The local cuisine is interesting, rich and largely undiscovered.
