The historical Sila Train: next stop…

Once again, the historical Sila Train has began its slow journey towards the summer – puffing, clattering and promising us a tour of the wonderful Sila National Park in Calabria, between elders and maples, foxes and deer.

The train has vintage carriages dating back to the 1930s, pulled by a steam locomotive manufactured in 1926. It takes 45 minutes to ride along its whole route – Moccone-Camigliatello-San Nicola-Silvana Mansio – and reach the highest narrow-gauge railway station in Europe, at 1,400 meters of altitude.

There are only 120 seats, so don’t forget to reserve your tickets! And have a lovely, slow tour of Sila’s wonders.
