“Not as great as many say but still worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

nice little town in an area where there is little to nothing to do.
Good food at good prices and a great view to see the sun go down sitting on a canon

“Nicest people in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The region of Calabria is very unlike any other that I have ever been to in Italy. Very friendly, kind and hospitable people. The region is not over touristed hence still retains a very rustic charm. Beautiful old town, lovely beach. Fiery cuisine with its own variety of chilli.... very tasty.

“A beautiful small town on the Tyrrhenian sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Tropea is a beautiful small town on the Tyrrhenian sea, built on a cliff over blue and turquoise water. The historic center is very typical for the Calabrian coast, with stunning views, simple but quaint stores and restaurants with outside seating. People are friendly and if you can manage some italian they like to chat. The downtown is reasonably clean, but they do have a problem with trash collection which you see primarily at the edge of the town. The sandy beach on the right side of Santa Maria de L'isola is beautiful and the food in the restaurants is amazing and reasonably priced compared to the north of Europe. The town is in a great location for day trips to wonderful Pizzo, Reggio Calabria and even Messina in Sicily (easy train and ferry ride)

“Tropea walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Old historic center is attractive for an after-lunch walk. Charming shops. Good restaurants all over the area, and do try the onions!
