How to reach Cetraro
If you fly to Rome Airports (or Naples), we suggest you to take a train to reach PAOLA, the closest railway station to Cetraro. Many trains a day connect “Roma Termini” station to PAOLA, and the travel time with “high speed Frecce trains (FrecciaRossa or Frecciargento) is about 3h 30’. You can also search for “Fiumicino Aeroporto-Paola” connection on the website to have the best solution directly from FCO Airport. We believe that it is by far the easiest way to arrive from Rome or Naples.
