Whether for its gastronomy, its history shrouded in legend, the blue sea and soft sands or the majestically perched historical centre, there are many reasons to visit the Calabrian pearl of Tropea. Keep reading

Short trip to Tropea full of flavours and the sea

Explore the maze of narrow streets in the historic center of Tropea, stroll through Largo Ercole and admire the palaces of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, such as Palazzo Toraldo and Villa Braghò. Visit the Cathedral of Maria Santissima of Romania, also known as "the Norman cathedral" due to its origins dating back to 1200, inside which you can admire the painting of the Blessed Virgin by a pupil belonging to the Giotto School and a splendid eighteenth-century pulpit. After a tour to the deconsecrated church of Santa Maria della Neve, from the sixteenth century, if you want an excursion into nature we recommend you visit the Zugri Caves: it is a very ancient rock site that preserves over one hundred houses and other stone buildings.

Tropea

Between 'nduja, onions and a dream-like sea

Relaxing and spicy sunshine! Tropea smells of its unmistakable onion and red 'nduja. Its foundation is disputed between Hercules and Scipio Africanus, but no matter, it's worth staying in Tropea simply to immerse yourself in its traditions - and its blue sea. Relax at the Litorale del Cannone or Arenile della Rotonda, and stroll through the streets of the historic centre dotted with aristocratic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries before admiring the sacredness of the Norman-style Cathedral of Tropea.

  • Admire the unique beauty of the Sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Isola
  • Enjoy a moment of absolute relaxation at Spiaggia della Rotonda
  • Admire a wonderful sunset from the "Affaccio"
