Cosenza to the Arberesh communes

How difficult is it to get to the Arberesh communes from the city of Cosenza, particularly Vaccarizzo Albanese? Can this be done without a car? Are there local guides that could take us out to the communes?

Hi rxrgr8,

renting a car is your best option. Lamezia Terme airport is at 90 miles from Vaccarizzo

and there are several car-rental outside the terminal:

fly Rome (or Milan):

if you want to use pubblic service, the nearest train station is in Corigliano Scalo, at 14km (8.5 miles) but i doubt you will be able to find a bus or taxi from there.

Thanks, Salvo, unfortunately we don't drive or speak Italian which will make renting a car difficult. Does anyone know of a guide or cab driver who might be willing to take us out there for the day?
