Voyage to historic sites & modern-day pleasures

Dating back to 7th century BC, the Calabria port of Crotone is home to historic sites such as the ancient fishing village of Le Castella and Capo Colonna Archaeological Park, while more modern-day pleasures can be found at the stalls of Piazza Pitagora or the shops along Via Vittorio Veneto.

And when stores shut down during siesta, it’s the perfect time to take a stroll along the waterfront, catch a few rays at the beach or indulge in regional specialties like pecorino cotronese cheese and meats such as soppressata and sardella, both to be accompanied by a glass of Ciro wine. With a history dating back thousands of years, “the wine of the gods” is one of the oldest named wines in the world. Cheers to that, or as they say in Italian, “Salute!”
