Crotone is a port city and seaside resort in Calabria, in southern Italy, and the capital of the province of the same name. The city is set in beautiful surroundings, including elongated sandy beaches. In the city itself the Castello di Carlo V (and the museum inside) is worth a visit.
The city has over 60,000 inhabitants.
Crotone is located in southern Italy, in the Calabria region (the 'tip' of the 'Italian boot') on the Ionic Sea. Besides beaches the surroundings consist of rough nature and irregularly-shaped rocky coasts. Lamezia Terme lies over 100 kilometers west of Crotone.
Calabria is one of Italy's poorest regions, although the situation has somewhat improved recently, also thanks to increasing tourism. Crotone used to be an industrial center, with mainly chemical industry but that has almost disappeared. Call centers now offer employment, but many inhabitants of Crotone are unemployed.
Crotone Airport, Sant'Anna Airport, is situated 15 kilometers southwest of the city center and is easily reachable by rental car via the SS106.
Crotone has good public bus transport and, contrary to some other Italian towns, buses run frequently and on time. There are also train connections with places in the vicinity, as well as larger cities like Reggio di Calabria (the region's capital), Rome and Bologna. In addition there are ferry connections with other cities in southern Italy.
Traffic and Parking
What can we say? Messy and the Italian way, is how you can best describe the traffic in Crotone. Once you're used to it you'll have no trouble finding your way around and, in general, finding a parking place for your rental car doesn't cause problems either. Usually, you can, for example, find a free parking place near the harbor.
Calabria hasn't been well developed as a tourist destination yet, but is visited by more and more people. In recent years, the choice of accommodations has therefore increased. In Crotone, you'll mainly find basic guesthouses, but also some good hotels. You can also rent apartments, ideal if you want to stay longer in Crotone.
