Tropea, a millenary history
Spending your holidays in Tropea is an amazing experience. Protagonist of ancient legends and known all over the world for its magnificent landscape views, Tropea is the bearer of a rich history crossed by centuries of art and culture.
Majestic and amazing, it dominates the crystal clear sea from a vast cliff of rocks, accompanied by the Church of Santa Maria dell’Isola, centuries-old refuge of sailors when it was not yet connected to the mainland.
The sanctuary is now reached by a steep staircase carved into the rock and is surrounded by a lush garden full of Mediterranean plants.
The view is sensational: beyond the transparent waters of the sea you can see the Aeolian Islands and Sicily with its monumental volcano Etna.
A labyrinth of charming alleys will lead you through the historic center, including churches of various eras, noble palaces, eighteenth-century balconies overlooking the sea and shops of our typical products, such as the spicy salami Nduja di Spilinga or the red onions of Tropea.
You can also embark on exciting boat tours and sail from the marina of Tropea to visit Capo Vaticano, Parghelia, Ricadi, Briatico and Zambrone, must-see stops on an itinerary in the middle of the sea.
Unique and extraordinary: Calabria is rich in wonders and experiences that will leave an indelible memory in your heart.
