Straddling the divide between the rolling sands of the Ionian coast and the pristine cliffs bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea, Lamezia Terme was born of the fusion of three separate Italian towns, each with its own cultural flavor and attractions. Enjoy your flight to Lamezia Terme and arrive relaxed and energized with help from Alitalia’s extra-comfort seats, available on each of its 140 contemporary jetliners.
Some of the region’s most popular features are the Terme di Caronte (the ‘Baths of Charon’), naturally occurring mineral hot springs and mud baths rumored to have incredible restorative and healing properties. The majority of these wonders are found in the Sambiase district, alongside the gorgeous frescoes and Neoclassical and Baroque architecture surrounding the parish church of San Pancrazio. If you’ve traveled to Lamezia Terme before, you can uncover new treasures in the nearby coastal village of Tropea, with fantastic reefs for local divers and wonderful panoramic views of the sea.
Each of Lamezia Terme’s three districts contains well-preserved palaces and monasteries that span the ages as far back as the 9th century. These attractions are best enjoyed under the clear skies and sunshine of late spring and early summer, so book your tickets to Lamezia Terme for May or June.
