The Archeological Park of Sibari on the Ionian Coast in Calabria was the result of the Greek Colonization during the eighth century B.C. One of the most powerful colonies, now the Archeological Park of Sibari was protected from the two river mouths and thrived with the rich cultivation to emerge as a vast territory among the Magno Greek civilizations. The main access to the town, now excavated, is through the North Gate through which you can explore the patrol path leading to the sandstone fountains. The two Plateiai, residential buildings, hemicycle theatre, Agora, the spa, public fountains, Tempietto, White House and Stombi are the notable features of the park.

Archeological Park Of Sibari Reviews & Ratings
I only saw it as i was cycling past it. Although reg entrance was closed a gate on main highway was open so went in shot some pics ... notice boards in Italian but am sure you can findmore info on wikipedia.... Not sure why it is so sunken as most ruins are above ground level.... maybe marsh land has risen over the years.
Though there isn't very much to see if compared to other archeological sites in southern Italy, it is always moving to walk on Roman built roads, especially if underneath one knows that there was Sybaris, the mythic city which gave us the epicurian adjective Sibarite. The staff who work there are very professional and kind. It isn't expensive to enter which makes it even more interesting for a visit.
In teoria sarebbe un posto magnifico. In pratica è una tragedia e non aggiungo altri commenti. La strada romana principale è metà coperta da erba. Non c'è un bar, un ristoro, un book shop, una mappa del luogo. Consiglio di andare prima al museo almeno ci si fa una idea più precisa degli scavi perché lì qualche informazione in più ce la possiamo fare.
Siamo giunti al parco dopo la visita al museo. Siamo stati accolti da due dipendenti molto cordiali, uno dei quali ci ha accompagnati nella visita. Ricco di storia è possibile ripercorrere la tre ricostruzioni della città di Sibari. Bellissimi i mosaici tuttora visibili.
