Aieta - Calabria, Pollino National Park

Aieta

Cities and Towns in Calabria

Aieta is an historic Calabrianhill town dominated by an imposing Renaissance mansion, which has recently been converted into an art gallery and museum that showcases some of the  most well-known artists in Calabria during the summer months.  
 
The museum as well as the local shops in Aieta, that showcase the works of local artists and craftsmen, speak to Calabria's history and the various cultures which have dominated the area through time.
 
For visitors interested in local craftsmenship, some may want to purchase some of the fabulous embroidery for which Aieta is justly renowned for. It's worth the trip in and of itself to Aieta, just to view some of these specacular goods.
 
In addition to these wears, there are a number of fascinating things to see in Aieta, including the Churches of Saint Maria della Visitazione, San Francesco and Addolorato al Ponte. 
 
In addition to the churches, there is an archeological site, known as Aieta Vetere, with remains from C. 1000 and several grottos, which have been converted to shrines, that visitors with time to explore, should make a point of  seeing. 
 
Much of the pleasure however, in visiting the town of Aieta is the simple, rustic way of life, visitors are exposed to. Taking a day or a few hours to walk around this historic village, one may very well feel they are not only stepping back in time, they are living it.

Client Testimonials

I have traveled to Italy 2x with the IVS for my own pleasure trips and 2x for business with IVS. These guys really pay attention and make your trip go like clockwork. Italy is nuts, just saying! There are so many rules and restrictions now, so we did not want to drive ourselves. Having traveled with them many times and done business on several occasions, most definitely USE this company. They know what they are talking about. They will save you not only MONEY but also time. Please contact me personally if you do not believe this. I am happy to tell you first hand that this company truly is awesome and will make your experience in Italy unforgettable - in a good way, of course!
