If you want to do long treks this would be a wonderful place, in which case you need many, many hours. We were taken there on a tour for a couple of hours and were extremely disappointed because there was a lot of travel involved getting there and the Tourist Centre displays were very poor when compared with other similar...

This is a lovely Park and there are some wonderful walks taking in all the natural beauty. Wildlife is in abundance. You could spend hours exploring. One observation don't try and drive the complete circuit around the park by car as the roads/tracks are very treacherous. You should only attempt this if you have a 4x4.

Sila is a beautiful park in the middle of calabria with 3 lovely lakes. It is a perfect place to walk in the nature and eat in a small restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Please consider that there is not an "entrance": the park is a huge area of calabria and you can cross it as you prefer. There... More
