  • beautiful statue at the foot of which you can admire a breathtaking view. to leave the car in a parking lot that costs 5 euros for the first hour, then a van for 1 euro per person. you could fit in the parking rate but obviously we're in Italy and especially in the South where every occasion is good to speculate the aui tourists, especially in maratea which compared to other towns overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea is considerably more expensive.

  • The statue that overlooks the Bay of Maratea is on a bluff about 500 meters and is 22 metres. It was built in 1965 and resumed the Christ the Redeemer in Rio. To reach the statue you must park your car in a paid parking (5 euros per hour) and then take a shuttle bus (€ 1). The show that can be enjoyed from the top is exciting with the mountains of Basilicata behind, the sea of Scalea and Praia a mare to the South and the Cilento North!

  • Being lovers of hiking we climbed to Christ the Redeemer on foot from Maratea. The statue itself is very impressive and you can enjoy a splendid panorama that's certainly worth going there. As I said we walked on foot, but the place you can ance drive + shuttle. You arrive with your own car up to a parking lot not far from Christ (5 minutes walk) and then we continue with a shuttle bus. Parking fees are really a steal: 5 euro the first hour (or part thereof) and 3 euros each subsequent hour (or fraction thereof), to which you add 1 euro per person for the next shuttle. Definitely don't promote sustainable tourism in this way ...

  • Absolutely amazing place. You drive up the mountain to a car park and get a mini bus upto the top. There are a couple of shops for drinks foods gift items. There's a church aswell, then you walk to the Christ. The views are superb! A must see if in Calabria
  • Great views, well worth the walk.
  • Beautiful statue overlooking the coastline. Easy to drive up, wander around, and a stunning view of the area. Highly recommended.
  • Great view, had to pay for parking about 3/4 way up the hill was only €3 an hour and then walk the rest or take one of the taxis to the top
  • Beautifull overview!!! Amazing place
