If you like the outdoors this is worth a visit when in the area.
It would be advisable to drive around the park first and then pick your starting point for a hike as there are several - this will allow you you get your bearings and choose what area you want to cover.
There are hikes to suit everyone from the light stroll to the hardcore 5hr all day job.
Strong shoes, water and some food are a must. There are toilets, a few cafes and spaces for barbecues.
The drive from Catanzaro lido to the national park is 1.5 hrs but allows you to take in some of southern Italys most breathtaking scenery, but leave early and ensure you have a GPS with road closure updates as the multiple mountain bridges and tunnels can be closed off with diversions through small mountain villages
