Welcome to Tips-and-travel

On our blog and on our facebook page

The purpose of its creation is precisely to exchange travel tips with friends of the page, the different ‘tips’  we collected through our travels, share experiences, make known places through photographs, in short, everything that could be useful to those planning a trip.
When you go to an agency, we haven’t generally all the time we’d want to ask all to the agent; if you are looking on the net, it is not sure that all what they say is what we will really find at the destination so what is better than our own testimonies?
We  have people with experience in the field to whom we can ask our questions, small local businesses who would like to be known, bed and breakfast, hotels, guest houses, apartments everywhere and we could organize trips, group trips,  tours, etc.
It is a great challenge and we will do our endeavor to make our idea works also with your interaction.
Have fun and feel free to participate and spread the word to friends and family.
Bon divertissement et n’hésitez pas à participer et passer le mots à vos amis et famille.

Crotone, Calabria, Italy

Crotone is an Italian city, capital of the province of the same name, in Calabria. The city was founded by the Greeks in the eighth Century BC and was one of the most important centers of Ancient Greece. The old town is developed in a maze of narrow streets and squares, from the cathedral in the main square of Pythagoras, the contact point between the old and new town. Crotone is facing the Ionian Sea near the mouth of the river Esaro. The southern area is completely immersed in the marine protected area of Capo Rizzuto. On the promontory of Capo Colonna there is the only column that remains of the temple of Hera Lacinia that closes the city in a large basin which separates the Gulf of Squillace. In the old town there are many places overlooked by important buildings such as the Palazzo Morelli and Palazzo Barracco among others. The ‘pescheria’ is a picturesque district of the historic city center. To see: the cathedral (XI century) where there is a baptismal fountain with a zoomorphic base and the painting of Our Lady of Capocolonna or Black Madonna, an object of devotion; Sanit Claire church (built on a monastery of the fifteenth century) with frescoes of the eighteenth century and a Neapolitan tiled floor; the baroque church of Saint Joseph with its imposing wooden front door with two sculptures dating from the late seventeenth century; the church of Saint Peter, the Tower of Nao, among others.


The center of nightlife, especially in summer, is located on a portion of the Avenue Cristoforo Colombo, after 20:00 it becomes pedestrian. From here you have easy access to the marina.
Another good place to walk is the part of the coast that is called Promenade Gramsci.
Crotone is a very active city in the summer, ideal for a family holiday to enjoy the beach and sea. There are many shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, etc.
