How to get there
The central position of the National Park of Sila compared to the regional morphology makes it easy to reach by car:
- from the Ionian area, along the S.S. 106
- from the Tyrrhenian area, thanks to the S.S. 18.
With its exits of Cosenza, Rogliano, Altilia Grimaldi and more southern Lamezia Terme, the highway "A2" represents the primary road axis on which to direct your choice, if you reach from farther.
The S.S. 107 silano-crotonese passes just inside the Park area and is ideally equidistant from the Greek, the Big and the Small Sila. The Highway 280 of the Due Mari, on the isthmus Lamezia Terme-Catanzaro and, further south, the S.S. 281 of Rosarno offer to the traveler other possible routes.
The Italian railways offer a diversified range of choices to reach the Park by train. The stations of Paola, Lamezia Terme, Catanzaro and Crotone are the main ganglia from which then you can leave for Sila, by car.
The bus line, private or managed by the Railways of Calabria, represents a good alternative to complete the journey to the chosen destinations. In summertime, both from the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian coasts, several races climb towards the Sila.
If you choose the plane in less than two hours from Milan and Turin, and even less from Rome and Bologna, direct flights reach the nearest airport to Sila, that of Lamezia Terme.
Even the airport of Crotone, represents a valid possibility.
