Explore uncontaminated nature, the sea and the beautiful landscapes
Today we will show you the Calabrian countryside! Zungri, “la Città di Pietra” is situated 570 meters above sea level on the plateau of Monte Poro. The old village is one of the important agricultural centers of this area.
The historical center represents a typical example of a peasant village.
After visiting the small farmer museum and a introduction of the cave area, we will discover the caves and step into history surrounded by unspoiled nature and a breathtaking view. With a small picnic we will enjoy the landscape and relax.

From Monte Poro to Capo Vaticano
Our hike takes us from Monte Poro, where most of the local cheeses are produced (Pecorino, Ricotta, Mozzarella ...) down to Capo Vaticano. During the descend, we will have a breathtaking view of the region of Capo Vaticano, the Gulf of Gioia Tauro, the Aeolian Islands and sometimes also the vulcano Aetna. Arriving at the belvedere we will relax with an aperitivo in a typical bar and taste local specialties.
