Lamezia Terme was formed in 1968, thanks to the unification of three separate towns in the Province of Catanzaro. It is the central part of Calabria, a zone celebrated for its beautiful landscapes. The city is found between the cliffs of the Tyrrenhian coast and the sand dunes of the Ionic coast – just to the south of the Sila, a sort of Alpine range in the heart of the Mediterranean.
