Squillace is a very small town in the province of Catanzaro and the best way to move around the town is on foot. The main center of the town is very compact and most sight seeing attractions are located closely to the center of the town. It can all be covered within a day.
What to see:
The Duomo of Squillace (18th century medieval Norman Cathedral)
Immacolata Church (San Nicola delle Donne church )
San Matteo Church
Chiesetta of Santa Maria Della Pietà
The Castle of Squillace --- Admission fee (inside) 3 € / garden and sorroundings FREE
How to get here:
TRAIN : regional train from cities in the region as well from other destinations in Italy
BUS: state buses that operate in the region connect the town to Catanzaro and several other smaller towns in the region. I usually used Troiolo Bus, their buses are new, clean and more relaxing while traveling because of their new coaches. Troiolo buses depart every few hours from their respective town locations and tickets can be bought by calling their office for reservation or pay in their website. There are also Troiolo buses departing from Rome.
CAR: Those who have their own cars can also drive down to the town quite easily. My husband usually have our weekend roadtrip. It is much easier, more fun traveling and stop whenever you want to take some photos along the road without thinking of other passengers.
