boat trips out of Tropea?

Hi - Please recommend any boat trips (for the day) that you have taken. Where to get it, how to arrange it, where it went and what you saw. Grazie, Donna (Fritkis)

Hi Donna

A boat trip to the Aeolian Islands to see the islands and the volcano of Stromboli is a great day out.

Read about Beata Aksakal's description of her trip: calabrianinvest.com/Pizzo_express/articles_f…

Karin Callipo of ABC Tropea speaks English and can arrange the trip for you:

email: karin.intour@hotmail.it

Tel. +39 3881943327

You can see all their excursions on the website - but no prices or detailed info I'm afraid, so not much use - but gives you an idea of the excursions they offer:

I have met Karin and know that they do run these trips.

Hope this helps

Anna

Hi Rhydian,

We will be in Italy June 15-29 (Tropea June 19-27) so will be able to give you a trip report before you go. Make me a 'friend' if you can.

My husband has been researching and collecting all - the towns to visit, train/ferry, restaurant & bar, and sightseeing boat information. One guide says; "Trips to the Lipari Islands including Stomboli are well publicized throughout the town of Tropea and at the marina. Two of the most popular companies offering trips are Comerci and Tropeamar."

Having never visited Calabria before we are excited to take day trips to the surrounding towns. Have you been before? I was wondering if the trains connecting the seaside towns are similar to those in Liguria - that being, they run frequently making all of the stops.

Hi again Donna, and Rhydian

I would recommend a day trip to Pizzo from Tropea.

There is a small local train line that runs along the coast, and yes, it does make all the stops. I wouldn't say it runs frequently, so it's best to find out the times in advance. This way you can make sure you catch a train in the morning, and know what time your train home again is in the evening.

Pizzo is beautiful and unspoilt (less commercialised than Tropea), and there are lots of interesting things to see and do. For more information about Pizzo sights (including food recommendations), have a look at my recent posts on this forum.

The station at Pizzo is a pleasant 20 minute stroll along a small road by the sea where you will come to Pizzo Marina. Pizzo itself is then reached by climbing up through the pedestrian Old Town to the main Piazza. You will see the castle on the cliff ahead of you as you walk along towards Pizzo Marina.

I will be in Pizzo myself at that time, so if you want any more advice, do get in touch.

Regards

Anna

Anna,

Thank you. Pizzo is on the short list of places to visit. We like to explore different towns, see a church or historic site, rent chaises and umbrellas, and enjoy delicious food. Looks like Calabria is going to be a good match for us.

Donna, you'll enjoy Tropea. I myself stayed there last year. The restaurants are very reasonably priced. The town I was most impressed with was Scilla. I am debating if I should stay there the next time I visit. The only downside is that it is not on the main train line.
