Castello Normanno Svevo

Reviewed By Clio47 - New York City

The archeological museum in the castle at Vibo Valentia is well worth a detour. There is a most impressive collection of antiquities from local excavations with a very informative overview of the Greek, Roman and medieval background of this area. A very important region of Magna Grecia. An excellent display, beautifully designed. We were treated to a tour by one of the museum's archaeologists, and found the experience to be one that we would highly recommend to anyone interested in the origins of Calabria. The view from the castle ramparts was impressive on a cloudy day. On a clear day, almost unbelievably, you can see from Ischia to Mt. Etna. Nice shop.

Worth few steps up to reach the top of the hill and castle itself. We arrived late and were alone in whole castle (except staff of course :-). Museum is not big but provides good lesson in local history and walk is well organized. Take few pics from walls surrounding castle!

Chiesa di San Michele Arcangelo

Reviewed By Magellano81 - Tortona, Italy

Small church located near the old town of Tropea.
I visited this church in the evening after dinner, even though the time was still open, what a little 'unusual for a church, at that time there were few tourists and I was able to visit it calmly and take some photos. There is nothing exceptional inside, perhaps a short visit of a few minutes is enough.

Hipponion è il vecchio nome di Vibo Valentia. Le mura sono suggestive, ma la loro manutenzione lascia a desiderare. Grande testimonianza del passato.

Ottimo per fare attività fisica o passare un pò di tempo in tranquillità. Vista spettacolare; da non perdere, all'interno, il tempio di Proserpina

Duomo di Santa Maria Maggiore e San Leoluca

Reviewed By RinoBIROTAteam - Taranto, Italia

La chiesa è bella, grande, e si affaccia su una bella piazza ordinata e pulita. Magnifico il portale, ma anche all'interno c'è tanto da vedere. Andrebbe forse esaltata con un'illuminazione interna migliore

Limpidi

Reviewed By RinoBIROTAteam - Taranto, Italia

Mi ci sono imbattuto per caso; un paesino di nemmeno 200 anime, caratteristico e piacevole. Di ottimo impatto visivo le piccole case addossate, che danno all'insieme un che di fiabesco. Nei pressi il viadotto Filese, ardita opera di ingegneria degli anni 20

Convento dei Cappuccini

Reviewed By Daniele C

Chiesa del XVII sec. annessa al convento dei Frati Minori Cappuccini, adiacente villa Gagliardi,una tra le ville più belle e antiche della città, è sita non molto distante dal castello che ospita il museo archeologico nazionale. Merita una visita non solo per l'ottimo stato in cui è conservata ma perché è presente all'interno un affresco di Luca Giordano, La Madonna col bambino tra i Santi Anna e Felice.
