Getting to Lamezia Terme International Airport is also easy by taxi with many companies doing regular “runs” between the city centre and the airport, dropping travellers off just outside the terminal building. The train station is also served by airport busses and taxis. The airport is just 1km distance from the exit of Lamezia Terme onto the A3 motorway.

The city of Lamezia Terme serves as an important economic centre in Italy’s Calabria region. Today the city has some 71,250 citizens, a considerable number of whom look after the welfare of tourists coming to see attractions like the Malta Bastion watchtower built in 1550 by the Knights of Malta, the castle of Lamezia Terme, the Diocesan Museum and Roman as well as medieval finds and the ruins of further watchtowers dotted around the region.

The whole region was once occupied by ancient Rome’s empire. In 1062 a well-known Benedictine abbey, locally known as St. Eufemia, was founded in Lamezia Terme, with the settlement itself dating back to the 9th century. Today the airport derives its official IATA code from the abbey (SUF).

The word Calabria has its origins in the Greek and is taken from the Calabrian dialect. Its capital city is Catanzaro and the Calabria region borders to the east on the Ionian Sea. Just over 2 million people occupy the region. Wherever one travels by car in Calabria, the stunning green of the sea and the mountain ranges of La Sila, Aspromonte and Pollino are ever present. One can even take a helicopter tour from Lamezia Terme International Airport to cover the 130 km journey to the national parks in the mountains at Pollino and Aspromonte.

Getting to Lamezia Terme International Airport from destinations across Europe is not difficult either as many budget airlines like Air Berlin, Monarch, Germanwings, Ryanair and Easyjet fly into this airport.
