Lamezia Terme is a city in the Italian region of Calabria. The municipality was created in 1968 by the merger of three communes, of which Nicastro was the greatest one. The city lies close to the Tyrrhenian Sea. The coast has wonderful sand beaches. Furthermore, you can find relics from the (ancient) Romans and Greeks in the area.
The city has almost 75,000 inhabitants.
Lamezia Terme is centrally located in Calabria, the southern province that represents the toe of the Italian ‘boot’. The Tyrrhenian Sea is situated to the west of the city and well over 70 kilometers away, lies the Ionian Sea side. Reggio di Calabria is situated 135 kilometers to the south (at the far end of the toe of the Italian boot).
Agriculture plays an important part in the economy. Olives are cultivated in great quantities and they are partly used for the production of premium quality olive oil. Grapes also are being cultivated (partly for wine production), as well as figs and citrus fruits, the vineyards are generally small and medium-sized. Lamezia is famous for its dry red wine, characterized by the local Nerello Mascales grape.
Fifteen kilometers to the southwest of the city, lies the Lamezia Terme Airport.
Public bus transport is being operated by “Lamezia Multiservizi”. There is a regular service to the airport, furthermore there are 18 bus lines that will take you to your desired destination, however, once in a while a bus may break down...
Driving around Lamezia Terme outside rush hours, is no problem. However, watch where you park because it is not always clearly indicated whether or not you need to pay, and if so, how.
