The city of Crotone and the forests of the Sila National Park will be the setting for New Year's Eve in Calabria 2024 with an additional Crotone-Sila bus service for those who want to enjoy the Rai New Year's Eve concert in the city and spend New Year's Day on the ski slopes.

New Year's Eve in Crotone and New Year's Day in Sila

New Year's Eve 2024 will be celebrated live on RAI from Crotone. "L'Anno che Verrà", the customary Rai New Year's Eve concert hosted by Amadeus, this year makes a stop in Calabria, in the city of Crotone.

The rich programme sees the big names of Italian music, from Annalisa to Patty Pravo, alternating on the stage of Crotone's New Year's Eve, in the central Piazza Pitagora, for an evening of fun and beauty.

A city of the sea, art, culture and archaeology, Crotone awaits you to toast the end of the year in a packed square, which at the stroke of midnight is lit up by a fireworks display.

Afterwards, the party moves to the Crotone Seafront, which for the entire night will come alive as a huge open-air disco, in the presence of the big names of the national DJ set. What better way than dawn on the Ionian Sea to greet New Year 2024 together?

The great event of the RAI New Year's Eve concert in Crotone is the perfect opportunity to visit the "City of Pythagoras", which offers a cultural itinerary dedicated to its philosopher at the Pythagorean Park, which includes the Pythagorean Museum and Gardens, and to the splendour of the ancient Greek city of Kroton, recounted through the exhibits of the National Archaeological Museum of Crotone and the Archaeological Park of Capo Colonna.
