We have been to large and small locations in Italy. here one feels the genuine friendliness of the shopkeepers and the beauty of the town. You are not in a tourist location, here is the real deal.

The second half of September, is a great time to visit Tropea. During this time, there is a jazz festival in the old town. Old buildings, small family shops, nice restaurants, narrow streets - all together give a charm to this beautiful city.
