Tropea is a colourful seaside resort situated in the region of Calabria. It’s home to some of the region’s finest beaches, with a dramatic cliff-side location gazing out across the Tyrrhenian Sea, and clear water that wouldn’t look out of place in the Caribbean. Its most famous stretch of coast is the impressive Coast of the Gods, with a breathtaking beauty that more than lives up to its name. The town itself is a real charmer, with fabulous views and plenty of little gelaterie and restaurants to stop at as you explore. Don’t miss the Santa Maria dell’Isola monastery, up on a rocky promontory overlooking the beach. The historic centre of Tropea is well worth a wander, too; filled with terracotta-topped buildings, winding little lanes and pastel-coloured palazzi, as well as a notable Duomo.
