Reviews from our customers
This is how holiday rental owners described Tropea
Piazza Ercole ...
show more is in the middle of the Corso. In this suggestive square you can see the Circolo Galluppi, which was built in the early 1700s, and the monument to the philosopher Pasquale Galluppi.
The Cathedral is worthy of particular attention due to the importance of its Norman architecture. The church dates back to the 12th and 13th centuries. The church on the Island together with the cliffs of Tropea with the mansions built on the very brink, have become the touristic emblem of Tropea.
There are many different towns and villages around Tropea which still preserve their ancient traditions and which provide interesting day trips for tourists.
RICADI: this is an important tourist venue having excellent reception facilities; it is found on the Capo Vaticano promontory;
ZAMBRONE: a well-known seaside resort with various tourist services;
SPILINGA: this village is on the slopes of Monte Poro, which forms a promontory pushing into the Tyrhennian Sea. The name means land of caves.
ZUNGRI: this is a large village to the north of the Poro plateau. There is a series of 39 caves once used by Basilian monks.
PIZZO: a seaside resort which still maintains its medieval alleyways. The main attraction is the castle where Napoleon’s brother-in-law was sentenced to death and executed.
SERRA SAN BRUNO: this is one of the main tourist resorts in the hilly country of the province of Vibo Valentia. The Certosa monastery founded by Bruonone of Cologne is a popular place to see.
Further south is the splendid city of Reggio Calabria. This town has a famous seafront promenade, an Aragonese castle, the Magna Grecia museum which houses the ancient Greek Riaci Bronzes and many other attractions
In the mountains behind Reggio Calabria you can explore the Aspromonte National Park
Towards the coast you can explore the violet coast from Scilla to Chiavalea.
Tropea is a seaside resort with impressive scenery in the region of Calabria, in the south of Italy. This stretch of coastline on the Tyrrhenian Sea is called the Costa degli Dei, the 'Coast of the Gods', and it is hugely admired by those in the know as ...
show more one of Italy's finest summer holiday destinations. The coastline curves outwards in a large hilly bulge, boasting dramatic cliffs, sunny beaches, and a string of little resorts and campsites. Tropea is the busiest and most attractive of these seaside towns; with a historic centre perched on cliffs above the sea.
Tropea is large enough and interesting enough to serve as a base for a longer holiday, and the local railway line and boat trips allow a certain amount of exploration without the need to drive. Although it is not particularly well-known to English-speaking travellers, Tropea is popular with Italians and with sun-seeking Germans, many of whom drive south in camper vans or head for the area's campsites. Italians mostly holiday in July and August; in May, June and September Tropea is both cheaper and less crowded while the weather should still be warm and sunny.
Tropea's principal social activity is a traditional one with a twist. Any time of the day or evening you'll see holidaymakers and locals taking a passeggiata down Corso Vittorio Emanuele, strolling along and people-watching, before reaching the the street's sudden end, where a set of metal railings offer a dramatic view over the beach and sea. The next stage in the ritual is to lean out, admire the view, chat a little, then wander back up the road to sit with a drink or to perform another circuit.
Make your way south to the tip of Italy's boot and you will find Capo Vaticano, an ancient granite outcrop on the Calabrian coast. The coast consists of 800km of mountainous coastline overlooking the Mediterranean, and provides natural beauty, beaches and history.
Tropea, the area's best-known town, has a modern harbour, is steeped in history and has houses sitting on cliff terraces.
Northern Italy does have great beaches, but so does southern Italy — without the high prices and pretension. Grotticelle is one of those where you holiday with the locals. Take an umbrella and picnic or do as they do: rent an umbrella and chair, sit back and relax.

Worth a culinary journey
Whilst enjoying a holiday home vacation you can also have a try at preparing typical Italian food. Eventually the uniqueness of the country is also down to its culinary specialities. With fresh produce bought at the local market even a simple pasta sauce with a glass of wine tastes that much better than at home. Alternatively you can pamper yourself in one of the many Italian restaurants.
Explore Italy’s cities from your holiday apartment
One outstanding highlight is of course Italy’s renowned cities. Rome, the Eternal City, leads the way with its ancient treasures and architectural master pieces such as the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon or St. Peter’s Basilica. Venice is world-famous and unique for its setting in the lagoon and its canals which stretch through the city. Florence, Verona and Siena impress with their cultural sights. And while Milan in the north made its name as the fashion capital Naples in the south attracts tourists with its spectacular location between the sea and Mount Vesuvius. Choose a holiday apartment in one of the Italian cities or at least plan one or two city day trips – you won’t regret it.
By plane, car or train to Italy
Depending on your travel destination and starting point there are several journey options available. The most flexibility is guaranteed by travelling with your own car. However one must consider that travelling to south Italy takes a long time. There are international airports all over Italy and flights to popular holiday destinations are provided all year round. Travelling by train is also a good option when visiting the country south of the Alps.
