After spending days reading all these incredible forums, I am ready to participate. My husband and I have traveled to Italy many times with tour groups, but now would like to try it on our own. Groups never seem to offer trips to Calabria. I have researched my family's genealogy and would like to visit the town of Montauro in Catanzaro. We prefer not to rent a car. Is this possible?
Also, we like the idea of convent and monastary stays for some of the time, but prefer not to have to pay the reservation fee charged by "Monastary Stays". Curfew don't bother us as we are an older couple who doesn't go out late.We have no itinerary yet, but are open to suggestions. We have "done" all the major tourist attractions. Looking at early November when flights are cheapest.
Grateful for all assistance offered.
