We stayed there one week. It's really affordable and easy to get to (especially via train). The town is so picturesque, I fell in love immediately. Great food, great people, lovely scenery. I liked that we could take a looot of tours directly from Tropea.

If you arrive in Calabria do not hesitate to visit Tropea. Old buildings, stone-paved streets, great places with excellent dishes.

We visited Calabria end of October 2018. We were lucky with the weather, since day temperatures were around 23 degrees. On a sunny day we were enjoying on the beach. Some people were still swimming. The only negative side was, that many restaurants and shops...More

If I had known how beautiful Tropea was, I would have gone there years ago. It has it all - charming buildings, wonderful food and bars and shops, beautiful crystal clear water beaches, and views from the tops of the cliffs that are just gorgeous....More

Lots of nice restaurants, a few breathtaking viewpoints and two wonderful beaches - in town. For longer stays, Tropea might become a little boring.
