I have been in Tropea for nearly a week now and will be here for another 2 weeks. The beaches here are beautiful on a nice day :) the locals say that travelling here in September is the best time because the water is amazing and most people have gone from their holidays here in Italia. The town is very sweet and acient!!! they have very nice restaurants surrounding the city and the views from the city of the sea are breath taking. This sunday i plan to visit the Sicilian Islands which are very close by on a cruise boat, this only costed me 36 euros for a whole day trip to 3 islands!!!this town has alot to offer for kids and adults, a must see if you are in Calabria.
