Pizzo Calabro on Youtube - selected videos

Recently, on a Sunday morning, CC came across a YouTube video about Pizzo. He called us and we all gathered around him and looked at the laptop screen. Amazed, we wanted to go back right away to this humble village on the sea!

Curious what else is about Pizzo Calabro on YouTube, I started a research.

I have to say there are not many professional clips about Pizzo on YouTube, which is typical for Pizzo. It's a humble little city that could do much better regarding "quality tourism", but on the other hand, its simplicity is its charm.

Below, I want to share some clips that I liked. If there are comments, they are in Italian, which sets you in the right mood - even if you don't understand the language.

The first clip is my favorite. It makes me want to go right back. It gives a brief overview of the picturesque historic centre of Pizzo. The large port that you can see from a bird perspective in the beginning of the video shows Vibo Marina, which is about 4 km further South. Since the video is about 4 years old, it does not show the harbor project of Pizzo itself.
Can you identify our palazzo? :

The next clip, also by uomoinmare, takes you on a boat ride from South of Vibo Marina to North of Lamezzia - with a short stop in Pizzo. You can see the endless "wild" beaches and crystal clear turquoise sea.

The clip below was uploaded by a Pizzitani saying that it is a small "homage" to his beautiful hometown. And he shows the Piazza della Republica now and then,  some folklore and culture events as well as the famous tartuffo ice-cream:


This film below is another professional video about Pizzo produced for Italian TV RAI:


Last but not least, two more things that tourist will encounter while in Pizzo: La Chiesa di Piedigrotta and the always and everywhere greeting tartuffo ice cream. So these two clips will complete my little selection: How to make the famous tartuffo di Pizzo and Piedigrotta (Linea Blu, RAI uno 2006).

If you have difficulties seeing the above videos,  click on the YouTube button (below right) of each video and try to see it on YouTube directly... and don't get lost with all the other recommended videos ;-)
