Description

Tropea is a lovely small town built on cliffs that seem to have appeared from nowhere. What makes Tropea even better are two sandy white beaches making the transition from the sea to the cliffs and city a lot friendlier. The different viewpoints manage to give new insights into the beauty of this unspoiled town and its surroundings. The church especially, built on a rock sticking out of the sea, make Tropea almost mythical.



Keep an eye out for

Tropea is known for its spicy sausages; Nduja. Get it on the streets on some bread or buy it at a butcher for on the BBQ.
