Located on the East coast within easy access to both Lamezia and Reggio Calabria airports, Siderno is great town ideal to stay in the Summer and winter months. Whether to enjoy the magnificent long Italian lungomare (Seaside promenade), to use as a base from which to travel Calabria or simply to enjoy the beautiful weather and beaches. During the Summer there are many beach bars and restaurants along the sea promenade to sit and enjoy the beauty of the coast. You can also rent sun loungers by the day at many of the beach bars. During the evening there is a great deal going on so staying for the nightlife is a great idea.
Slightly inland from Siderno sits the town of Gerace which is just 15 minutes away. Gerace has to be one of Calabria’s most spectacular old towns with its imposing castle, many Churches and old stone built houses sitting on a large rock like hill overlooking the sea. During the Summer months Siderno has many beach bars and events which entice many Italians and Europeans to its beaches. One of the most well know places to stay is Grand Hotel President with its private beach and within walking distance to the main town. September is a very good time to visit with Festa della Madona which is the patron saint of Siderno. During this time it closes its main high street and for about a week street sellers offer everything from historic art to modern clothing.
To get here it is just an hour away from Lamezia and Reggio Calabria airport or it is possible to take the train. The journey through the mountains from Rossarno is a sight in itself as the road is on stilts with many tunnels.
