A holiday in Tropea ticks every Italian box. It’s a historic town of squares and lanes, where dramatic cliffs tower over beautiful beaches by a clear, blue sea that’s the perfect temperature for swimmers from spring to autumn.

Tropea is in Calabria, right at the ‘toe’ of southern Italy, and it’s so established as a holiday destinations that Italians call this part of their country, the ‘Costa degli Dei’ or the ‘Coast of the Gods’. It’s also a favourite with German visitors, who enjoy the area’s many campsites. Though it’s not too well-known in the UK, you’ll hear English spoken, though, as many thousands of locals set sail for America in harder times and there are strong links with the States.

The town has a history stretching back to ancient times and some very fine architecture. The perfect day in Tropea would probably involve dining in palazzo cafés – super-sweet red onions are the local speciality – strolling through the town, swimming or sunbathing by the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of other resorts to explore along the Calabrian shore, beautiful countryside inland, and the Aeolian Islands are a must-see day trip. We offer a range of hotel and holiday types in Tropea, including all inclusive.

A holiday in Tropea is just the ticket for those who are happy doing not very much at all. The town’s chief attraction is its beach, a wonderful stretch of white sand underneath soaring cliffs where historic buildings perch. A westerly outlook makes for some stunning sunsets, and there are some watersports businesses on the sands.

The town’s historic centre isn’t large, and is best explored and enjoyed slowly and on foot. As you’d expect, some of the stand-out buildings are religious, including the Santuario Santa Maria dell'Isola, and the two churches of San Michele Arcangelo, and Sanita o dei Cappuccini. There’s also a small museum covering the history of the area.

The Aeolian Islands are the most popular boat trip from Tropea, and the seven islands are a must-see while you are here. Beautiful and historic enough to warrant UNESCO protection, the group boasts everything from volcanoes to astoundingly good food.



The town’s beach is great quality. However, while the dramatic cliffs are undoubtedly one of the great draws of the town, they mean a long and sometimes steep descent from the town to get to the sands. However, if the climb is too much for you there’s no shortage of other beautiful beaches both within walking distance of the town and along this popular stretch of the Italian coast. There’s also quite a slope on the beach itself, so the water gets deep pretty quickly.

The Calabrian coast really does live up to its ‘Caribbean of Europe’ reputation, and there are plenty of other places to enjoy this beautiful area on your holiday to Tropea. Along the Costa degli Dei, the pretty fishing village of Pizzo Calabro boasts another lofty perch and astounding views. Capo Vaticano, at the southern end of the 30-mile coast, is reckoned to be one of the best beaches in the world.
