Catanzaro province is known for its ample coastline and abundant beaches. At its narrowest point, which also happens to be the narrowest point on the entire Italian peninsula, there are just over 18 miles (29 kilometers) between the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts. Bring a swimsuit to enjoy Catanzaro’s long sandy stretches, coves and bays. Venture inland to go skiing, hiking or even mushroom hunting in a vast, protected national park.
Start your explorations in the regional capital of Catanzaro, a city with a longstanding reputation as a silk production hub. Italians have dubbed it “La Terra di Due Mari" (the land of two seas). Search for notable sights such as the single-arch 1960-built Catanzaro Bridge, the ruins of an 11th-century Norman Castle and Catanzaro Cathedral, which contains the well-known 16th-century Madonna with Child sculpted by Antonello Gagini da Messina.
The real attraction to this province, however, is not the capital city, but its coastlines. For beach time, head for Soverato near the Gulf of Squillace. Here, the coast alternates between rugged and rocky stretches and sections of sandy beach. Nearby, the old hilltop town of Soverato Superiore has a historic core perfect for wandering.
Satisfy your history interests with a trip to the Scolacium Archaeological Park in Borgia. Explore the ancient archaeological site and view well-preserved Roman ruins, including old villas. An on-site museum displays exhibits uncovered from the site during excavations.
For outdoor adventure, drive inland to Sila National Park. Trek in the woods, rent bikes and follow nature trails or canoe in one of the park’s many lakes. As you explore, be alert for the park’s wild inhabitants, which include deer, eagles and wolves. During winter, it’s possible to ski downhill or cross-country in the park.
Find Catanzaro province in the Calabria region of Italy. To get here, fly into Lamezia Terme International Airport. Although buses connect the major centers, you may want to rent a car to fully explore this beautiful southern Italian province.
