Pizzo is a popular tourist destination and has everything a seaside town needs to offer: a central piazza, shops, bars, restaurants and its own beach. The town stands on a cliff which affords panoramic views of the Gulf of Euphemia – all while sipping your morning coffee, evening aperitivo or having the famous tartuffo ice-cream.
The town is only about 20 minutes drive (20 km) from Lamezia International Airport, which has connections to the UK, Germany and elsewhere throughout Europe. It’s also just 40 minutes drive from the famous seaside town of Tropea, spectacularly perched on a clifftop overlooking its beautiful beaches which are consistently ranked among the most beautiful in Italy.
Calabria is a mountainous region of outstanding natural beauty and boasts no less than three national parks and two UNESCO world heritage sites. For those interested in Winter sports there are a number of ski resorts located within 2 hours drive of Pizzo (https://www.skiresort.info/ski-resorts/calabria/).
Calabria has a fascinating and colourful history encompassing Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Norman influence - with many interesting archaeological remains present throughout the region. Pythagoras, the famous Greek mathematician, lived in Crotone. There are still Greek and Albanian-speaking minorities living in Calabria.
Every region of Italy boasts its own particular culinary delights and Calabria is no different in this regard, with a delectable variety of cuisine on offer. Distinguishing features include the prevalence of relatively spicier dishes such as ‘nduja. For wine fans Calabria has plenty to sample – the well-known Cirò is just one of nine DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) and eleven IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) wine varieties. In fact, wine cultivation in the region traces its origins back as far as Magna Grecia in ancient times.
