Visited this place during August 2018 trip to Calabria. The owner speaks excellent English, which is rare and could help us select some more in-depth guides for the area. These are available in English too. Overall charming place to step in and browse books.

Great bookshop with real books. A very nice young woman who spoke excellent English runs the shop. Very welcoming, and hugely knowledgeable of her current stock, and of the town of Tropea. Situated in a charming piazza a must visit!

This new bookshop is run by a lovely helpful couple who went out of their way to help me find a specific book. They are both fluent in English and very knowledgeable about Calabria. Wonderful!
