Tropea, the pearl of Calabria

May 13, 2021 379

Considered the "pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea" par excellence, Tropea is a coastal town of Calabria standing on a promontory in the province of Vibo Valentia, embedded between the Gulf of Sant'Eufemia and the Gulf of Gioia. Located in the Tyrrhenian Calabria, which is the side lapped by the Tyrrhenian Sea, like all southern cities, it welcomes visitors with its warmth and 5-star hospitality.

It is the main centre of the famous Costa degli Dei (or Coast of the Gods), which stretches from Pizzo Calabro, through Vibo Valentia, Briatico, Zambrone, Praghelia, Ricadi and Joppolo, to Nicotera, winding its way along around 55 km of coastline characterised by a multifaceted morphology. From this stretch, we can enjoy a spectacular view of the Aeolian Islands, one of the jewels of nearby Sicily, which are only 32 nautical miles away.
