Capo Vaticano

Dramatic cliffs, beautiful beaches, and crystal clear waters make this area one of Europe's most gorgeous seaside resorts. It's a paradise for nature lovers as well as beach bums. The diverse sealife makes scuba diving here a pleasure, while the varied plant life and terrain make rambling very interesting.

It takes about an hour and ten minutes to drive to Capo Vaticano from the airport. Most hotels in the area have car parking, although generally it's easy to find somewhere to leave your car. There are public and private car parks near the beaches.

Reggio di Calabria

The main launching point for ferries to Sicily, Reggio di Calabria is a buzzing port town. Festivals take place throughout the summer, and the seafront promenade is always busy during the high season.

Tropea is just over an hour away from the airport. You can't bring your car into the city's historic centre, so if you're looking for a hotel with parking it will probably be on the outskirts of town.
