Escorted Rail Tours to Gerace

The beautiful medieval town of Gerace is set dramatically on a hill top, raised 500 metres above sea level. On one side of Gerace, views stretch out to the coastline and out across the Ionian Sea; on the other side the dark, brooding interior mountains rise up and hide the far side of Calabria from view.

The town is approximately 10km inland from the coastal town of Locri and is home to a wealth of attractions including Calabria's largest Romanesque cathedral. Gerace has been described, at least by locals, as the 'Florence of the South', thanks largely to its attractive palaces, pretty town squares and the abundance of religious buildings. Gerace was once home to as many as 128 churches.

One of the main attractions in Gerace is the remains of an old Norman castle. The castle is thought to have been built, originally, by the Byzantines in the 10th century.
