Tropea is located on a cliff overlooking the sea between the Gulfs of Gioia and S. Eufemia, and is the flagship of the entire Calabrian coast, with its long white beaches of fine sand, rocks and cuisine with typical products. 
The many beaches are each different from the other for some characteristics, the quiet beach of Cannone, that of Palombaro which can only be reached by swimming along the islet, the Rotonda beach with a wonderful view right in front of the Stromboli, the 'A linguata, the beach of the Convent preferred by those who dive for its seabed, and of Marina dell'Isola which is the most popular. 


In addition to relaxing by the sea, in Tropea you can admire the historic center , with its noble palaces of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Piazza Ercole with the statue of Pasquale Galluppi, once the residence of the nobles. From Largo Vittorio Emanuele it is possible to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of this land, from where you can see the Church of Santa Maria dell'Isola , built in the Gothic era on an islet. It can be reached via a ladder that has been carved out of the rock itself, and is surrounded by a garden with a very suggestive view of the entire coast, the sea and the Aeolian Islands . And then again admire the views from the many views of the coast, including that of the Cannon.


Also suggestive are the walks through the alleys , from which you have access to the many workshops of wood, iron, fabric and terracotta artisans. But also small shops selling local products, fresh pasta, cold cuts, cheeses, bergamot liqueur and the inevitable Spilinga nduja and Tropea red onion , with their derivatives, jams, sauces, sauces, even desserts. In the many restaurants and clubs in the historic center of the town you can taste the delicious fish cuisine, the many typical products and also the meat-based cuisine with the typical 'fileja' pasta.
