Torre Melissa- A small heaven

You like a calm place to spend your holidays in?

You like the sea,the sun and relaxing at the beach?

Torre Melissa is a small village in Calabria, Italy.

It is located in the province of Crotone and has about 1,500 inhabitants.

The village lays directly next to the Ionian Sea which is famous for having very large beaches and a very clean sea.

There are many ways to get to Torre Melissa. Many people like to travel by car and it is a very good opportunity to make a road trip out of this. On the other hand, if you do not like to travel for several hours, there is an international airport in Lamezia Terme.

From Lamezia Terme you can take the train or keep travelling by bus in order to get to Torre Melissa, but I suggest you to rent a car. On the long term it is a huge advantage and it is very important to be mobile.

In the surroundings of Torre Melissa there are many beautiful things to see and it is the easiest way to reach them by car.

For accommodation, you can choose to live in one of the four hotels in the village. Depending on how much you would like to spend, there is also the possibility to rent an apartment for several weeks.

In Torre Melissa you can also enjoy the taste of Calabrian cuisine. In Calabria people love spicy food. There are very tasty sausages (salsiccia) and also hot chilis to season the food the way you like.

If you are a person who likes to do sports or to be very active in general, and likes to also see other places,I can suggest you the following:

Sila National Park

  • 150 ha of surface
  • vast range of landscapes and animals
  • trips through the huge forest of Sila (trekking)
  • rent a bike or ride a horse
  • take a boat to cross the lake

Acqua Park Odissea 2000

This huge water park is located in Rossano, approximately 60 km away from Torre Melissa. It has many slides, watergym activities and a lot of other stuff to offer.
