      This tour takes you from the Tyrrhenian to the Ionian Sea. In between lies the majestic Aspromonte National Park. In hardly any other region in Europe will you find such pristine nature and beauty as in these mountains. In the coastal areas, citrus fruits such as lemon and bergamot are grown, the scent of which the fresh wind blows around your nose. Further up, wild cats, wolves and eagles live largely undisturbed. This tour also takes you to some of the best places to stop for a break, where you can enjoy local specialties made from fresh, local ingredients.If you want to split the tour into two daily stages in order to have more time for food breaks and the other nice things along the way, the place Delianuova is ideal for an overnight stay, which you will reach after about 55 kilometers. There are not only a large number of excellent restaurants here, but also two hotels. In addition, you will pass rural guest houses several times on the tour, which offer rooms and also serve good food in a rustic, authentic ambience.It starts right by the sea, on the promenade of Reggio Calabria. The typical espresso bars in town open early in the morning, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a hearty breakfast. You will also need some energy, after all, it is now up to the mountains. Again and again you drive through small, picturesque mountain villages, where restaurants and bars with cozy terraces entice you to stop for a break. You can be sure that there are fresh regional specialties to be tasted in all of these locations.In Gambarie you not only have fantastic views, you can also have a great lunch break here, for example in the Ristorante Al Brigante. At 1,600 meters above sea level, you really deserve some refreshment. You may be surprised to find ski lifts here in southern Italy. In the cold season, winter sports are actually practiced here. Therefore, for such a small place, there is a comparatively well developed infrastructure with many hotels and restaurants.Now you dive deep into the untouched, wild nature of the Aspromonte. Fantastic rock formations and deep gorges will amaze you. After a seemingly endless descent you will reach Delianuova. Countless bars and restaurants are waiting to pamper you. This is also where the second long climb of this tour begins, so make sure you have enough to eat and drink with you. If you like it rustic, you can make a detour to the Rifugio Il Biancospino up on the mountain to enjoy real mountain cuisine.From here there is only a short climb to tackle and then you get closer and closer to the Ionian Sea. Now the many meters in altitude that have been climbed are paying off again: It's more than 20 kilometers only downhill, so enjoy the wind, let it roll and enjoy the effortless kilometers. After all, your destination is on the coast of the Ionian Sea. Maybe you are in the mood for fresh seafood or fish. You won't have to look far for that here, after all, fishing has a long tradition in the region.

      This round tour with start and finish in the idyllic Serra San Bruno is also primarily about the culinary delights that you can enjoy along the way and the regional ingredients that make Calabrian cuisine so particularly tasty. But don't be fooled by the relatively short distance. After all, we are here in the mountains, where it is sometimes steep uphill. The meters in altitude and the route profile below bear witness to this. So strengthen yourself on the way wherever possible and divide your energy well, because most of the vertical meters wait towards the end of the tour, when you pedal back up from Soriano Calabro to the plateau of Serra San Bruno.It starts in Serra San Bruno on the banks of the Garusi. After the first ascent you will already reach the recommended restaurant Il Tagliere. In addition to complete dishes, you will also be served antipasti or snacks here, if you are not that hungry. Everything is prepared with fresh ingredients from the region. Of course there is also good coffee and soft drinks. The restaurant is definitely worth a stop.It doesn't take long until you reach the tranquil mountain village of Mongiana. Here, too, the scents of the fresh, Calabrian cuisine beckon. In Calabria, enjoyment is always a top priority; eating is about more than just eating. You take your time and, above all, invest a lot of love and effort in the typical dishes. You can convince yourself of this at the Hotel Ristorante degli Amici. Maybe you want to check in straight away and continue the rest of the tour the next day, you wouldn't blame it. In Mongiana it can be endured longer. You can also visit the local iron museum.This is followed by a longer section with no rest stops through the enchanting nature of the national park. First you move on the plateau, then you continue downhill to the next village Dasà. It's just a small village, but of course there is good food here too. If you are in the mood for real southern Italian pizza with fresh, regional ingredients, we recommend a stop at San Lorenzo di Gianni. The excellent red and white wines of Calabria go well with the pizza. But don't overdo it with the wine if you want to keep going.The most strenuous part of the tour then begins at Soriano Calabro. You want to conquer about 700 meters in altitude. The road winds up the slope in spectacular serpentines and the views get better and better. There is an almost alpine feeling in the seemingly endless hairpin bends. In the upper part of the ascent, the pizzeria Da Nonna Mariangela is waiting to supply you with new energy. When you've come here, you've already done the worst. It goes a little further uphill, but is no longer seriously steep.Back in Serra San Bruno, it is definitely worth visiting the historic city center. The legacy of the Carthusian monks left not only the world-famous Santo Stefano monastery, but also other traces of their tradition such as blacksmiths and artistic portals can be found all over the place. You will hardly be surprised that you can stop off, eat and stay overnight in the city.
