Tropea, Calabria, an overlooked, lesser-known beauty of Italy
What’s the hype about?
Although not as famous as other coastal areas of Italy (Cinque Terre I am talking about you!) Tropea receives lots of local visitors camping around during the summertime or taking short breaks in the wintertime (which is characteristically quieter than summer). There is a fair amount of foreigners but I truly believe Tropea deserves more!
How to reach Tropea
Additionally, there are trains to/ from Naples, Rome, Catania, etc. but usually not direct ones, most likely you will need to change at Lamezia Terme for the last branch of the trip. Some coaches also pass through Lamezia Terme Train station, from Naples, Rome, etc. and this might be the cheapest option (but not the fastest) if you are already in Italy.

Besides swimming, what else to do and see in Tropea
-Visit some museums and/ or landmarks. The legend says Tropea was found by Hercules and since then it has been a passage for pirates, Normans, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, etc. Remainings from all these “visitors” are blended with Renaissance and Baroque style houses and details across the old town; such an interesting place to visit!
