At the wharf
Down at the port, the most popular docking point is the Banchina di riva, from which visitors can admire the massive walls of the castle of Carlo V. From here, the city centre is just a few hundred metres away and can easily be reached on foot.
Staying in touch
Internet cafés can be found both in the city centre, as well as at the waterfront.
How to get around
After having reached Piazza Pitagora (Pythagoras square), at the centre of the city, it’s best to continue on foot. To get to Capo Colonna and visit the archaeological park, buses don’t run at the most convenient times, so it is recommended to take a taxi, or even perhaps another more original means of transport: the three-wheeled auto rickshaw is certainly a curious and unique way to get around!
Crotone has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and pleasantly mild autumns and springs. The temperature rarely drops below zero during the wintertime.
