    The old part of Cosenza is a wonderful walk through time. The visit to the cathedral was well worth the visit

    We were surprised and pleased at the restoration of this castle. You get a good sense of its former self without embellishments amid there are good views from the top. Nicely done.

    For a lover of romantic art, this is a must see place in Cosenza. Upon arrival I was given a private tour for free, and it was even in English! My tour guides outlined the history of the site including its previous occupation as a prison. It’s a shame this place doesn’t get as many visitors as it deserves. Some stunning pieces, and peaceful ambience. I will definitely visit again.

    Cosenza is a nice town, although not much to do. We stopped there when we drove from Naples to Sicily.

    This is a beautiful villa of bygone times occupied by a noble family and now used as a museum . The family were in the silk trade and Alfonso Rendnao a famous musician. Visitors can go through a series of room to learn of the city's fascinating history form the times of Brettia, a warrior woman to a virtual reality view of current day Cosenza. A must see museum with a panoramic view from the top of the building.

    After spending time in the old town the walk down and across the bridge gives an amazing photo opportunity.

    This is a wonderful museum that allows one to really immerse oneself in the joys of historical computer technology and gaming.

    However, I urge caution. After four hours in the museum I began to believe I had actually become Pac-Man and, as a result, began chasing my family around the house trying to bite them!

    In the end I was vanquished by a coloured ghost, which turned out to be our pet dog! Then we continued the Christmas tradition of drinking more gin....

    This is a nice collection of local art from the area's churches. The way it is displayed, you can see it up close.

    Round 3 of my rapid tour of Calabrian football stadiums, my visit to the home of Cosenza Calcio provided a fitting end - pitting them against local rivals Reggina. Not that it’s a particularly vicious rivalry, but it, coupled with a slightly more considerate kickoff time, ensured that there was a better crowd than I’d become adjusted to.

    The San Vito is located about 20-30 min walk from Cosenza town centre. Probably about the same, maybe up to 40 min, from the train station. It’s not a bad walk, though neither is it particularly interesting. There’s only a couple of bars/cafes on the way which naturally become very busy on matchdays.

    One of these is actually the closest available outlet to the ground for purchasing tickets, though he warned if you only have an Italian Social Security number you won’t get one there, not through lack of trying from the lovely staff, but the system just won’t support it. If you go to the Cosenza Calcio store in the city centre they don’t seem to need this.

    The 20,000 stadium is nicely sized, although only the main tribune is fully covered, not ideal given the conditions I visited in. Interestingly, Cosenza have different ultra groups located in both curvas, which actually works wonders for atmosphere as it’s coming from both sides. The tribune itself is actually nicely maintained, and while I’m not gonna lie and call the bathroom facilities good, I’ve seen much, much worse.

    The main blemish on what is otherwise a really good little stadium is the catering, or lack thereof. It was one guy and his son selling crisps, juice and water. I understand that not selling beer for a ‘derby’ is a thing, but I mean pre-packed sandwiches or something! Because kickoff coincided with restaurant opening times meaning I couldn’t grab anything beforehand so was starving!

    Overall, I actually enjoyed my visit to Cosenza’s home, you could potentially add another star if I could have had something to eat

    Well worth seeking out this excellent museum in the old town, near the river. Very professionally presented, good English translations, just the right size to feel you have really learnt a lot, but not overwhelmed. Top quality introduction to Calabrian early life.

    A cool place for a hot summer day in this old park with shade and benches. Good for a stroll if you are visiting
