White sand and white cliffs down near Italy's toe, a reef lies just out from Tropea's shores which jut into a promontory with sea on three sides. The old town is one of the prettiest in Calibra, built around an old palazzi in pale golden stone. Tropea has a lovely Gothic church and a Benedictine monastery, and is the home of famously prized red onions, that one enterprising local business even makes into ice cream.

On a clear day you can see all the way to the base of Stromboli, and there's a choice choice of pale sandy bays creeping round the coast to visit by motorboat.
