Lots of nice restaurants, a few breathtaking viewpoints and two wonderful beaches - in town. For longer stays, Tropea might become a little boring.

Beautiful beach and a very cool old town with lots of little alley ways to meander thru. It is very apparent that they don’t want outsiders to know about there little piece of paradise. While some establishments were very welcoming others not so much.

Yes, I agree. May is very nice in Tropea, so I would at least plan for the end of April (or May if you can). April things like the beach will still be closed and some stores will not yet be open. The weather won't be cold... More
