Finding a port of entry into Italy not yet inundated by tourists is no easy feat. Savvy travellers choose Lamezia Terme’s airport as a sort of backdoor introduction to Calabria’s startling natural beauty. Flanked by mountains, sea and thermal springs, this is a city begging to be discovered.
Natural thermal springs: The natural thermal springs have a 2000-year history of attracting everyone from the ancient Greeks to the Normans for their healing properties. Guests can soak in the curative waters or choose from a range of spa treatments.
Azienda Agricola Statti: A winery that also produces oil and cheese. Guests stroll through sun-drenched vineyards, visit the olive press and cantina, and can even witness the birth of a calf—two or three are born each day.
The Malta Bastion: Watchtower built in 1550 as part of a defence system along the Tyrrhenian coast against Turkish invaders. It offers a spectacular view of the gulf and appears on Lamezia’s coat of arms.
