ABOUT THE AREA


Pizzo, sometimes called Pizzo Calabro, is a seaside town in Calabria, southern italy. The historic heart of the town is on a headland above the sea; newer settlements spread along the seashore in either direction. There are beautiful beaches nearby and Pizzo is both a busy 'local' town and a holiday destination. it makes a good day out from Tropea, a more famous tourist resort further along the Costa degli Dei ('Coast of the Gods').


Pizzo has two main tourist attractions: the Chiesetta di Piedigrotta, a bizarre cave-chapel on the shore, and the renowned tartufo di Pizzo, a chocolate truffle ice cream. it also has a historic castle and a pleasant town centre where there is a tourist information office in Piazza della Repubblica, the main square.


The Chiesetta di Piedigrotta is just outside Pizzo; a fifteen-minute walk along the road leading out of town along the coast to the north-east. The church is down a flight of steps; tickets are for sale at a bar over the road. The church dates back to the seventeenth century and is a cave dug out of a soft rock in a bank facing right out to sea, and was originally created in gratitude by shipwrecked sailors who'd been saved from a storm. The interior is ornamented with statues carved enthusiastically from the rock by a local family in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. it is hard to decide whether the chapel is a devoutly kitsch curiosity or a tourist trap. Still, it is definitely worth seeing if you are in Pizzo. According to local tourist publicity, it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Calabria, rivalling the Riace Bronzes in Reggio di Calabria's archaeological museum.


The tartufo di Pizzo is a chocolate and hazelnut ice cream (gelato) shaped as a rough sphere, containing chocolate fudge sauce and coated in cocoa powder and sugar (see picture). its popularity - or marketing power - spreads beyond Pizzo and you'll find it on the dessert menu in other parts of southern italy. Word has it, locally, that a big ice cream multinational is seeking to popularise the product even further. The cafes around the main square in Pizzo all serve this speciality, and variations on it, with waiters producing a non-stop procession of ice creams.


The centre of Pizzo is a picturesque network of narrow lanes, historic but bustling with everyday Calabrian life. We visited during a strawberry festival and found the town lively with stalls, food tasting, live music and a jolly atmosphere. The heart of town is Piazza della Repubblica, where travellers can relax at an outdoor table and enjoy a gelato. Close to the square is Pizzo's castle, known as the Castello Murat. it was built in the fifteenth century but is most celebrated for being the place where Napoleon's brother-in-law, Joachim Murat, was executed. The castle is open to the public, and also hosts special events.


Downhill in the shadow of the castle is Pizzo's small harbour, with a pleasant seaside promenade and sheltered beach. The railway station is along the coast in this direction. There is a stretch of beach here, and more beaches on the other side of town, a short drive away. Pizzo has excellent road and rail connections to the north and south, including Lamezia Airport about 25 minutes away and roads into the stunning Sila National Park and mountains.


in the summer tourist season a little tourist 'train' called the Pizzo Express takes visitors on a tour of Pizzo and to the Chiesa di Piedigrotta.
