Tropea Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 81 photos

Tropea is situated in Vibo Valentia's province, on a cliff 70 metres high falling over a wonderful jagged coast with white sandy shores; It has a geographic position that distinguishes it from so many italian and english resorts. This position gave her so many epiteths such has the Capital of the Holidays, the Pearl of Tirreno, and the Queen of Italo Coast. if you take a view from one of the so many balcons of this village, the scenery is breathtaking.
Tropea belongs to the province of Reggio Calabria. You can reach Tropea if you come from: south, on the way from Nicotera; west, from Vibo Valentia. The nearest railway station is situated on the hills of Pizzo Calabro.
It is a very touristic location in many fields and not only the summer one
The coast is very beautiful and the sea has very peculiar colours.
The shores have a white and thin sand.
The waters are clean and clear with a transparent blue of different tonalities.
There is a slight sea breeze that provides a pleasant temperature, ideal to get a nice tan without suffering of uneasy effects of hot weather.
The beach has also good touristic facilities.

    Ah, this is a place for me - famous Calabrian cooking :-) I like it very much spicy and bruschetta all'inferno sounds marvellous :-) Also the old houses and the town itself looks gorgeous :-)

    Its soo very nice to finally see that there is moore to Italy than Rome, Venice and so on... Especially since I take an interest in Calabria and have been thinking of moving to Nicotera for my retirement.
