By train
For timetables, we refer to Trenitalia. Diamante is on the main line from Rome to Sicily, but most of the fast trains (Eurostar, Intercity) do not stop here. From these, one usually changes to a slower train in Salerno, Sapri, Scalea or Paola.

By bus
There is a direct Eurobus connection from Rome in the afternoon. Informations on this service can be obtained by calling +39 0968 21527, +39 0968 400464.

By car
Coming from the north, you should take motorway A3 (its northern end is Salerno) towards Reggio Calabria. Take the exit Lagonegro Nord and drive south on the national road SS18 for about 70Km, following signs to Praia a Mare and Scalea.

Coming from the south (e.g. Lamezia Terme Airport) use motorway A3 northbound and exit at Falerna (the first exit after Lamezia Terme) and take the national road SS18 north, following signs to Paola and Salerno, for about 110Km.

Note that, unlike most other motorways in Italy, A3 is toll-free. Information on traffic and maps can be found at the Autostrade web site.
