How to reach Cittanova

By car: driving along the Highway A3 to Reggio Calabria, exit at Gioia Tauro and follow the SS 111 to Cittanova;

By plane: look for a flight with destination Airport Lamezia Terme. Once there you can rent a car (easier), or take the regional train to Reggio Calabria, exit at Villa San Giovanni and there take the bus of the company "Lirosi" (but it doesn't work neither in the evening nor on sunday).

By train: there are several trains from Rome and from Neaple directed to Reggio Calabria. You can stop in Gioia tauro and at the station take a pretty expensive "private" taxi, or stop a few stops further in Villa San Giovanni, and there take the bus "Lirosi" (but not in the evening and not on sunday).

By bus: Eurolines offers twice a week a bus-journey from Germany to Sicily. If you like long bus-journeys, this is the cheapest way, you have to stop at Villa San Giovanni, and there take the bus "Lirosi", which stops in the same place where you exit the eurolines-bus.
