BUON GIORNO ITALIA: Crotone's Isola di Capo Rizzuto

January 1, 2016
38°57′32″N 17°05′44″E

Le Castella can be found in Isola di Capo Rizzuto, a comune in the province of Crotone, Calabria, Italy. This 13th Century Argonese castle can only be visited on foot since there is only a narrow strip of land that connects the island to Crotone. Besides being a look out point for sea pirates attack for years,  it was also known as being the mythical hiding place of Ulysses in book of Odyssey.

Admission fee: Le Castella's sorrounding is free ; but to go inside the tower is 3€

How to get here:
CAR: Usually my husband and i went here by car. It is much easier and cost effective if you are going on a roadtrip and visit other nearby places.

PLANE: nearest airport here is Lamezia Terme, since the Crotone domestic airport is already closed.

TRAIN: Crotone also has a railway station and is easy to reach by train from the surrounding areas, then a short ride from a bus.

BUS: They have regional buses from north Italy.  I usually used Troiolo or Federico Bus Company.
