Cetraro is an ancient sea hamlet with a millennium-old history located along the Tyrrhenian coastal track, known as the Riviera dei Cedri. It was an ancient Bruzi centre; an ancient Italic population who in the IV century BC, acquired major importance after battling victoriously against Magno-Greek cities. For seven centuries (since 1086) it was administered by the Benedictine monks of the Montecassino Abbey. The town which is known for its fishing and touristic harbor is the ideal place for a lunch with fish: here the typical speciality is the rosamarina (a newborn bluefish), exquisite delicacy longed for by tourists that come numerous to Cetraro, especially in the summer.
