Around 65 kilometers of beautiful road with incredible views, a lot of camping areas and restaurants, bike friendly, lakes, forests and everything a nature lover might desire. One of the best surprises Italy offered us.

Hi! I would like to visit La Sila in June. I wonder if there is a convenient bus connection from south e.g. Lamezia Terme to any place with easy access to nice walks, lakes etc.? Is it possible to use Ferrovie della Calabria places worth seeing? Could Rogliano be the base of the visit or would Camigliatello Silano be a better choice? Any accommodation to be recommended? I appreciate any information :)
