The Grimaldi Palace Hotel enjoys a fantastic location in
the heart of Calabria that offers its guests easy access to
the treasures of Southern Italy. Located in Cittanova, on
the doorstep of the Aspromonte National Park, the Grimaldi
Palace is the ideal base from which to set out and explore
the natural beauty with which this region has been blessed.
Cittanova (literally translated into the new
city) was founded in 1618 in the aftermath of
a devastating earthquake that reshaped the demography of southern
Calabria. It endured a further earthquake in the early 18th
century but has since developed into a popular destination
among tourists in search of peace and tranquillity ¬(between
earthquakes of course). Its central position makes it the
perfect springboard from which to visit Sicily, Reggio Calabria
and the Adriatic Coast.
