Location, Climate and Dining Out
The complex is in a peaceful location just outside the charming, historic town of Pizzo in the south of Italy by the Tyrrhenian Sea. This area enjoys a Mediterranean climate with long, sunny days from early spring till late autumn.
Two minutes on foot from Fioribello is a Pizzeria with very good, reasonably priced food and a cheerful atmosphere. Five minutes by car or local bus along the coastal road brings you to Pizzo, with its white sandy beach and colourful, vibrant Piazza (town square). Pizzo has amazing sea views, cafes, excellent restaurants, shops, castle and friendly people. The gelaterias serve the wonderful local ice cream speciality, Tartufo.
Pizzo’s many other attractions include La Chiesa di Piedigrotta, a church carved entirely from the rock near the beach.
A short drive in the opposite direction from Pizzo is Vibo Marina, which also has friendly cafes, restaurants and bars.
Travel and Transport
Five minutes on foot from the apartment is Vibo-Valentia-Pizzo railway station, with fast, direct trains to many Italian cities such as Rome and Naples. You can also take regular local buses from here to Pizzo and Vibo Valentia.
You can find taxis at the station and in the Piazza, and for an adventurous and reasonably priced journey home from Pizzo after an evening out why not book a Chi! These are available by phone or in the Piazza.
Lamezia Terme airport, with direct flights from London Stanstead and many European cities, is 25 minutes by car.
The lovely, 17th century town of Tropea, known as the ‘pearl of the Tyrrhenian’, is only 25 minutes by car and less by local bus and train. Sicily is also within easy reach, and in winter, the Sila mountains in Calabria offer wonderful skiing opportunities.
