Arriving at Lamezia Airport and driving to Pizzo

Welcome to the International Airport of Lamezia Terme (SUF)!

When there is not much traffic, you can enjoy a short walk to the terminal :-)

When arriving from outside the EU you collect your luggage on the right hand side, where friendly customs officers await you to scan your bags. (One asked me to take him back to Bangkok due to lots of rain in Calabria in the last weeks.)

It always takes a bit of time to get your luggage, even just one plane has landed. Luggage from the EU will be delivered first.

If you  have not ordered pick-up service by a hotel or friends, you can catch a taxi outside the terminal. It costs around 35-40 Euro to the historic center of Pizzo. Pre-ordered service might cost more.

If you have rented a car, it is easy to find your way to Pizzo. It's direction south, Reggio Calabria. You can either take the highway which is free in the South of Italy (green sign) or follow the national road (blue sign). We always take the national road, and drive below the highway viaduct, following the signs to PIZZO (about 25km).

Watch out for goat crossing! This is country side!

A taxi driver might not know all the streets of Pizzo. Also some might be reluctant to drive through the narrow alleys. Our friends were dropped in Pizza last summer and had to pull their trolleys down the bumpy alleys to the doorsteps of our house.

Same here this April! Angelo dropped us at San Giorgio church, since our alley is under renovation and no cars can pass (since November 2012!).

That's why we packed light!


More about the pavement progress later.
