Love the old cobbled streets with views over the new town below to the sea. There are a couple of old churches worth a visit and the castle at the top. Well worth a visit and Sicoli bar for ice cream a treat.

Take the time to leave the shopping and spend a few hours in the upper town, which is the historic centre of Amantea. Have a gelato at Sicoli, visit the church of San Bernardino da Siena, and enjoy the wonderful views offered by the strategic...More
