Reggio Calabria, 22 July 2021

From 24 July, the Cedri Beach Link and Capo Vaticano Link will be in operation, as the new Trenitalia (FS Italiane Group) train + bus services created in collaboration with the Calabria Region to make it easier to reach the Calabrian tourist destinations. From 7 August, another intermodal train + bus service will be active: the Sibari Museum Link.

With 8 connections each day for the Cedri Beach Link departing from the Praja station, it will be possible to reach the beaches of San Nicola Arcella by bus.

There are 5 daily connections via the Capo Vaticano Link, which from the Ricadi station will connect to the seaside resort of Capo Vaticano, travelling along the Costa degli Dei by bus.

From 7 August, another train + bus service will be running, being the Sibari Museum Link that will connect the Sibari station to the National Archaeological Museum of Sibaritide.

The train + bus ticket can be purchased on Trenitalia’s sales channels as a single travel solution.

These services are in addition to those already available for travellers who choose to conveniently reach the tourist resorts of Calabria by train.
