If you are looking to experience a real taste of Italian life, then this is the place for you in a town that remains unspoilt by the trappings of commercial tourism.
Located on the third floor of an apartment block, right in the centre of a residential area, only a few minutes walk to the centre of Tropea, this apartment provides the perfect spot to soak up the local culture in a totally unspoilt area of Calabria.
Getting there involved flying to Lamezia from Stanstead, before hailing a 5 minute taxi ride to the station (taxi price €10). Once at the station we caught a train to Tropea (€3.40 for a single ticket, which you need to validate in the validation machine), that took us approximately 1 hour. When we arrived at Tropea we were met by Elizabeth, who drove us the 2 minutes to the apartment. Easy.
The only tough part was negotiating 3 flights of stairs with our suitcases to reach the front door but once inside it was worth the effort.
