I was really happy to find a beack resort hotel near Tropea with such a great discount but soon was disappointed on arrival. While my friends were assigned lovely rooms with views I got one on the driveway facing a wall. Fine, I want to be at the beach anyway. I didn't plan on being sent all over the place... More

It was difficult to find a hotel, we found it partialy thanks to our navigation system and partially by a good luck. We stayed in a beautiful suite - spacious bedroom with a living room and... More

We flew in from Bari to Lamezia Terme and hired the last car available and set off down the coast to try to find Ricardi and our home for the next week. The car agent told us to travel by the coastal road as there were many road works on the autostrada. This was very bad advice as the coastal... More
