“Great - Not touristy, just Italians living how they always have”
Review of Centro Storico

Centro Storico
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Cosenza old town is shabby, dirty, run-down and just a little bit scary ... but it's wonderful ... alive with people getting on with their lives (singing, arguing, kids playing, people cooking supper etc) and it's what a lot of the better-known Italian old towns used to look like before they got converted into tourist honeypots. Definitely worth a detour.

Cosenza is a nice town, although not much to do. We stopped there when we drove from Naples to Sicily.

Centro Storico is in a bit better shape than 3 years ago--a few more shops have opened but the city government is not devoting any attention to it and not near the potential it seemed to have in the 1990s. Yes the economy in Calabria is in bad shape but city governments need to get their act in shape to salvage this beautiful neighborhood that could be a local source of revenue attracting tourist dollars.

Old consenza city, lots of attractions if you like to walk.
I am here for work so I believe this is a good place to pass time. Take pictures and know more about vosenzs. Reggio calabra.

It is an interesting part of Cosenza. But it's a pity that nothing has been done to restore it and make it more attractive as a tourist destination.
