Virginia Rogers I am an American citizen of Italian descent and have had the good fortune to travel to Italy numerous times in my lifetime. This year I decided to purchase a condo in Tropea, Italy so that I will be able to spend extended time in Italy after I retire. I chose Tropea for its beauty and location in Calabria, the area from which my grandparents came. I had the good fortune to find Cristian Buttafuoco and his real estate agency. Cristian guided me throughout the process of looking for a condo and purchasing it. He answered all my questions and worked closely with me, the seller, and my attorney so that the purchase went smoothly. He continues to be there for me whenever I have a question or need regarding my new home. Cristian is excellent in all ways. He is knowledgeable, kind, hard- working, honest, trustworthy, and loyal. I could not have been happier with the service he provided and continues to provide.If anyone is looking to purchase a place or rent a place in the Tropea area, you can do no better than to contact Cristian Buttafuoco. You will be so happy and grateful that you did. Virginia Rogers e-mail: grogers@eriedayschool.com U.S.A 2017-10-05
Godfrey Holdstock Godfrey Holdstock 1 October 2017 I cannot speak too highly of Cristian Buttafuoco. I would trust him with ANYTHING. We first met Cristian 3 years ago when we came to Tropea and stayed in his holiday apartment. He met us at the airport and took us to collect a hire car. He then accompanied us to the villa, and just as we thought we would have to go out in the dark in a strange town, his mother appeared with dishes of hot food, which she repeated on a number of occasions during our stay! Throughout our holiday Cristian helped us to find and organise everything. Last year we decided that as we had enjoyed Tropea so much we wanted to buy a property there. Of course, we contacted Cristian, who sent us a selection of options. In February I flew out, when Cristian again met me at Lamezia, and invited me to stay in his little house for 3 days. He took me round the apartments I had said I would like to see, until I found one that my wife and I wanted to buy. During this time I had meals with his family in their home. I returned in June, again met by Cristian, who introduced me to the excellent Tony Blasa, with whom I arranged all the furnishing and fitting of our lovely flat. Cristian devoted a whole day to taking me round different shops to fully equip the apartment. He was very helpful in all liaisons necessary for purchases. Cristian joked that for him selling a property was the easy part; the difficult bit was afterwards! Sure enough, over more than a year since, he has continued to give us all the assistance imaginable. He is quick to send and respond to emails and phone calls, giving clear and invaluable advice and instructions. He has helped us in the involved process of becoming residents of Tropea, coming with us to the Municipio, and visiting offices and making arrangements before and after our stay this time. He helped us in finding and buying a car, again taking on himself the responsibility for obtaining documents, tax and insurance. We could not have done any of what had to be done without Cristian, who is unfailingly calm and cheerful, totally reliable, and for whom nothing is too much trouble. A true guide, companion and friend! England 2017-10-01
Lars Buntemeyer Beautiful Location We, as a couple, spend a very relaxing week in Christians Appartement in Tropea. The appartement is located a ca. 15 min. walk from the center of Tropea which makes it very calm and peaceful with a stunning view of the sea and the Stromboli. The apartement is also very well secured with its own electric gate to the property. Although the train station is in walking distance, I would recommend a rental car to explore other beautiful spots of Kalabria, e.g., the very stunning view at the Cap Vaticano. However, if you want to stay in Tropea during your holiday, a car is not needed since everything is in walking distance, including a beautifuful beach. I have to mention the amazing garden, which Christian's father is taking care of very well. It's even nicer than on the photos and we were grateful for the many shady spots where we enjoyed breakfast. Christian is an amazing host and was very helpful and friendly during the whole time. There is another guesthouse on the property which he takes care of and he came around almost everyday to make sure everything is ok. Thanks a lot! Germany 2017-06-30
Tim Ellis This is a brilliant villa to rent. A flexible, supportive, and genuinely friendly owner. And the villa itself is brilliant and as good if not better than the photos and easily accessible, only a 10 minute walk from Tropea centre. Tropea is also wonderful. All in All 10/10 England 2017-06-24
Evert De villa Sea View ligt prachtig bovenop een heuvel met een schitterend uitzicht op de zee en Tropea. Vanuit het huis kun je rustig naar beneden wandelen en loop je in 15 à 20 minuten dwars door het leuke stadje zo naar de zee en haar mooie strand. De klim terug is pittiger, maar goed te doen! Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en heeft een mooie tuin met veel bloemen en planten. Tropea heeft heel veel restaurants; je kunt er heerlijk eten. De omgeving is zeer de moeite waard. De afstand van het vliegveld Lamezia is slechts een uur rijden en onderweg kom je leuke plaatsen tegen, zoals Pizzo. Dit huis is een aanrader en Tropea en omgeving ook. Wij waren er van 22 tot 29 april en de temperatuur lag tussen de 20 en 27 graden. Holland 2017-04-30
Andrei Danilescu Salve. Le 5 stele sono meritate . Siamo una famiglia giovane con un bimbo di 4 anni e abbiamo una certa esperienza nel viaggiare. Tramite Cristian abbiamo trovato una locazione fantastica, che ci ha fatti sentire come a casa. Abbiamo trovato un alloggio pulito e accogliente situato in un posto tranquillo con una vista splendida sul mare. Cristian ci ha fatto anche da guida, spiegando dove magiare bene, dove fare le spese e il shopping. C'è ancora tanto da dire .....e soltanto di bene..... Che altro dire.......questa agenzia vale il le 5 stele. Grazie a Cristian Buttafuoco ! Andrei tel:3283346882 Italia 2016-09-06
Rocco Blonda Abbiamo trascorso due settimane di vacanze a Tropea in un appartamento che abbiamo trovato tramite l'agenzia Buttafuoco.. l'appartamento che ci ha stato proposto, ha superato di gran lunga le nostre aspettative... il Sig. Buttafuoco è una persona seria e molto disponibile Italia 2016-09-06
Aleksandar Sokcic The host, Christian has been very helpful and welcoming, he was always easy to reach. The hill to get to the house was quite tough to walk up and down every day in the heat, but it was worth it because the house and the view from it was nice. Living up on the hill provided the garden and terass with a breeze at all times which was comfortable in the summer heat. The house was very close to the centre of the city where one can find cute shops, restaurants etc. It was also a walking distance from the beach which was a plus for us. Overall happy with our stay! Sweden 2016-07-28
Vitalija Ruginyte We just came back from holiday in Tropea and staying at Cristian's villa was a great choice. When we arrived he picked us up from the train station and once we checked in he offered to take us for a food shopping- that was very helpful as we didn't have a car. Villa itself was amazing, beautiful garden and a rooftop terrace where we had our morning coffee. Villa is perfect for a couple or a small family (I stayed with my mum and sister) and it's very clean. Also it had beautiful views, as villa is on the hill you can see all town and the sea. I especially enjoyed the garden, it is really looked after. Having a BBQ and watching the sea at the same time- it can't get any better. It's in a quiet relaxing location, you need to walk up the hill a little bit but it's not far from the town centre- 10 minutes walk. During our stay Cristian was very helpful, he gave us restaurant recommendations and I have to say the food was delicious. There's nothing what not to like about the villa I will be definitely returning there again. Cristian was a great host, he was always there when we needed him and it didn't matter if it was out of work hours. I already reccomended this place to my friends and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet location with amazing garden and beautiful views. England 2016-05-30
Loraine Dominey Era cosi semplice comprare una casa in Italia con aiuto da l,agenzia immobiliare Buttafuoco. Eravamo molto fortunata perche' questa agenzia e' tra le poche che lavora onestamente nell'interesse dei clienti. Person gentile ed super disponibili, sono rimasta pienamente soddisfatta. Mi fa molto piacere raccomandare questa agenzia Immobiliare Buttafuoco. Grazie mille. Loraine ed Alan da Inghilterra. England 2016-05-29
Karin Sunden We rented a small house by Cristian three weeks in May. We are very happy with the accommodation. It was a cozy accommodation with a delightful garden and magnificent views of Tropea and the sea. Cristian and his parents are friendly and helpful. Cooking equipment is simple but it is enough for simple cooking. The double bed was comfy and we slept so good. It was completely still and quiet, only the birds that sang for us. We will definitely go back. We highly recommend mr Buttafuoco if you want to by och rent a house or apartment. Schweden 2016-05-25
Maria Very nice and clean apartment with a great view. The apartment was large and consisted of two floors and has three bedrooms. The building consists of two parts: one for rental and the other was for Cristian and his parents. There is also a cottage in the garden for rent. So you share the garden with the other tenants. For us that was not a problem. When you don't want to share; there is a great balcony as well! Cristian and his parents are very nice and polite people. A car is recommended, the road to the apartment is quite steep. And it is also nice to see the surroundings! We had a great time in Tropea and we love to come back to Cristians place! Holland 2016-05-06
Arthur and Elisabeth Western We got in touch with Cristian Buttafuoco when we considered buying a holiday apartment in Tropea. Initially all contact went by mail, and Cristian sent a list of current houses within our wishes and budget. All our inquiries and questions, was quickly dispatched. When visiting Tropea, he showed us several properties that were suited our needs and budget, and at no time did we feel pressured to make any decisions. We came to buy, and further in the process, he has been absolutely invaluable to us. It is not unproblematic to buy a property in another country with unfamiliar procedures, laws and regulations, not to mention language barriers. With Cristian's professionalism and helpfulness, he led us through the whole buying process in a wonderful way. We felt completely safe. Everything from signing the contract, creation of bank account to city services was handled very professionally. In addition to Cristian's professionality as mediator, his helpfulness is totally unique. Also after the purchase he has been far more helpful than what we expected. He arranges craftsmen at short notice, relations with suppliers of furniture etc. And always with kindness! The total experience of professionalism, honesty, safety and service, we will gladly recommend Agenzia Immobiliare Buttafuoco! We had not been happy owners of an apartment in Tropea without Cristian's unique level of friendliness and helpfulness! Elisabeth & Arthur Western, Norway Norway 2016-05-01
Monique Engelbertink We have had a wonderful stay at this nice house in Tropea. It's a very nice area, it's a clean house and it has a wonderful garden. We had swum in the sea. Christian is very kind and a professional. Czech Republic 2015-12-30
Camille Boucher "Excellent villa, very well positioned for easy access to the town and beach." Christian's villa was very well presented, clean and comfortable. The location of the villa is very good, 10 minutes walk to the town and 20 minutes walk to the lovely beach. I would definitely recommend the villa to anyone who wants a relaxing stay with easy access to all you could need. Canada 2015-09-21
Alex A "holidays 05" WOW!!!!Great location! If you're looking for a beautiful modern villa to stay while you spend your vacation in Tropea, this is definitely the place you should choose! My family and I spent our vacation here and we will definitely be returning soon! The villa was very close to the beautiful beach and the city. I would recommend this villa with high praises to anybody that would want to visit Italy. USA 2015-09-12
Joe Bono We spent a week at this property in early July 2015 - 2 adults and 2 teenage kids. The other reviews posted here are spot on. The house is a newer home, well appointed and it has a terrific view of the city of Tropea. The house has a lovely garden with lemon trees and roses. Cristian was a wonderful host as was his family who drove us to town when needed but also made a number of fabulous lunches for us. Tropea itself is a small coastal town with many great restaurants, a beautiful beach and lots todo and see. Having been to other parts of Italy before, I would highly recommend Calabria as a destination. USA 2015-07-27
Nellie N. "holidays 01" Cristian is a great host. Very friendly and availiable. we were 2 families of 4 staying and had no trouble finding space. The location was ideal for us as we came by car. Clean house and You have all you need. The best part is the view over the sea and on clear days you see Stromboli. Quiet place but be prepared to walk up the hill. We had 10 min walk to the city centre. We took the car to the beach. No problems finding parking space. I would absolutely recomend Cristian as a host as well as his property. Tropea is a wonderful city with great places to eat and lovely small shoes. Love the city and the beach is fantastic. We will defenetly return. Sweden 2015-07-24
Jasmine Howard "holidays 06" Beautiful Villa overlooking the ocean! Beautiful home in a perfect location close to downtown Tropea! Our group of 6 fit comfortably in the space and really enjoyed all the outdoor perks that it offers- especially the pizza over and Jacuzzi. The property is really well maintained with very updated appliances and furniture and has a very modern fresh feel! We will definitely be returning on a future vacation, especially at such a great nightly rate- that is not easy to find in the area! USA 2015-07-23
Claudio Tolomei - Londra La migliore agenzia immobiliare di Tropea.

LAURA S "holidays 05" Beautiful villa overlooking the ocean- great location! We stayed at Villa del Sole over the summer on our family vacation (6 people). This property is spacious and very accommodating! The utilities and furniture are very new and very modern. The property is also located in a very convenient location very close to downtown Tropea, where there are shops, restaurants and many nearby beaches. The villa also has a beautiful outdoor entertaining area, with wood-fire oven, where we would all sit to enjoy the beautiful summer evenings! We really enjoyed the fact that our entire group could fit comfortably here and would most definitely go back without hesitation! USA 2015-07-15
Family Rogers "holidays 06" WOW! I WANT TO GO BACK!!! One of the most beautiful and modern villa's I have ever stayed at. My family and I will be returning very soon! USA 2015-07-12

Antonio La Torre Trieste Siamo Stati nelle ville di Cristian Buttafuoco per le vacanze estive.Entrambi le ville erano pulitissime e molto attrezzate.Il giardino era anche molto curato e Cristian e la sua famiglia era molto disponibili e cordiali con noi.La vista mare in queste ville e' stupenda e potevamo fotografare tramonti memorabili ogni giorno. Sicuramente consigliamo queste ville ai nostri amici e sicuramente torneremo. Italia 2015-06-22
Maelie Bernier "holidays 02" "Small paradise" We had a wonderful stay in this amazing house in Tropea. The pictures on the website don't even do it justice.) I highly recommend this property. The location of the property is really nice. On a clear day you can see Stromboli from balcony.The view is really adorable. It is not far from the center, but it is located in very quite side. So to my opinion it is perfect The owner is very gentle and kind. Thank you. We will come back for sure! Canada 2015-04-28
Hughes Amice "holidays 01" We visited Tropea with a family of 5 for one week in the end of April, with a mild temperature of about 23 degrees Celcius. We had a very pleasant stay. The house provides everything you need as a tourist, place to park the car, clean rooms, good beds, a complete kitchen, a nice balcony with view at the see and the Stromboli, and a garden with fruit trees and a beautiful view at the see, where you can have breakfase and enjoy the sun (and also have sufficient shadow, if needed). Cristian Buttafuoco and his family were excellent hosts and were prepared to help is with any question, and spoiled us with fresh fruit from the garden and fresh-baked lemon-cookies. The house is in the hills and can be accessed via a rather small and steep road, but even with our large Opel Insigna that was really not a problem. The center of the village and the beach can be reached by foot, which takes a 10-15min walk. Tropea is a very nice and friendly village. Other nice places to go to are Reggio Calabria, and Capo Vaticano. England 2015-04-26
Lisa Gambardella "holidays 03" Clean apartment and excellent host! We just returned from a 12 day stay in Tropea. Cristian is an amazing host. He is honest and has a very good reputation in Tropea. He always made himself available whenever we needed something. We were late arriving into Tropea because my daughter was sick and he was waiting to greet us at the train station even in the early hours of the morning. The apartment is very very clean and spacious. The building is very well maintained. The air conditioning and water pressure for taking a shower were excellent. The apartment does not have WiFi, but Cristian does provide you with an internet key. Unfortunately, it didn't work for us, but Cristian tried his best to help us with it. We were within walking distance to beach and to the city centre of Tropea. There are many bakeries and supermarkets close by. I definitely plan to go back to Tropea and I would highly recommend this property. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car, Families with Teenagers Canada 2015-04-25
Emma Morin "holidays 01" we would highly recommend this house as it contained everything we could need and the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner and his family was outstanding.Yes it was a steep climb but that was the price we paid to have such stunning views and you are in the Italian countryside after all.We would certainly return and recommend to all our friends. Canada 2014-10-05
Charlie Bergeron "holidays 02" We stayed at Cristian's villa for 7 nights and it was a perfect setting for two. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. Sitting under the pergola with a glass of home made wine watching the sun set was beautiful and peaceful. Tropea is a lovely town with many excellent restaurants. The trip to Stromboli is well worth doing and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of seeing the live volcano at sun set. Beaches are nearby where we were able to swim. Cristian was a very helpful host and gave us good advice when asked. We would recommend this villa. Canada 2014-07-19
Alisya Lee "holidays 02" High up in the hills, overlooking Tropea. The sun terrace is to die for. Beautiful lemon trees to be picked for lemon tea in the morning. Christian on site but unobtrusive. Tropea is a brilliant town, small, with oh so many excellent restaurants. La Lamia is a starter. You can find the rest for yourself. They're all excellent places to eat, especially sea food. The downside. We drove from Lamezia airport and that was fine. But Tropea is a nightmare for driving. Cars coming from all angles. Better to drive down from the villa, park up quickly and walk through the town. Oh yes, the drive from villa to town is tricky. Coming back at night is even more so. England 2014-07-01
Alden Brown (holiday 02)We were made extremely welcome. Everything that we wanted to know was explained. The house is comfortable. The market is only a few minutes away by car or for a fit person, for fresh meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and bread. England 2014-03-16
Jim Garfield We just returned from a 2 week stay at Cristians house in Tropea.the apartment is very nice and well situated to visit Tropea and the surrounding areas. the house is well kept with everything that is needed. Upon our arrival Cristian met us and made sure that we had everything needed for our stay.Anyone that plans to visit the area should consider this house it is very nice. USA 2014-02-04
Patrik Olsen "holidays 01" We spend there 2 weeks with kids (3 and 4 years old). Conditions in the house were good, nothing fancy, but everything you need, for Italy's standards for sure better than average. Very nice and helpful owner. If we go to Tropea again (which is really worth seeing) we would stay at Cristiano's place with pleasure. Norway 2014-01-13
Johan Lambert (Holiday 02)Well equiped and clean with lovely roof terrace, shady garden dripping with bougainvillea and panoramic views. 10 mins walk to veg and fish market. Another 10 to beach and great snorkelling.Owner very helpful. Some traffic noise from road below (not visible) but not a problem. Hard to find so make sure you have owners mobile number. Would use it again England 2013-07-21
William (Property Holiday 02) We have just spent a week in this lovely little villa nestled above the seaside town of Tropea. The villa is cosy and comfortable, ideal for two people, with a generous lounge/dining area,plenty of space in the double bedroom and a compact, but very adequate bathroom. A bonus for us was having a washing machine. There is a rooftop terrace with fantastic views to the sea, but there are also lovely views from the garden which guests are encouraged to use. There are a number of sun lounges, an outdoor table setting and a BBQ. We had the most glorious weather, and promptly scrapped plans to drive to outlying destinations, instead choosing to walk into town daily, sometimes twice, to dine in the many wonderful little restaurants, enjoy granitas and gelatis, and explore the beaches, alleys and seaside walks. The walk into town takes about 15minutes, the walk home is uphill but helped us to work off the calories from the wonderful meals!! Cristian and Anna were wonderful hosts. Living in the house next door they were always available to assist or answer queries but were not at all intrusive. They are friendly and approachable and went to great lengths to help rectify a personal difficulty which could have affected my ongoing holiday in Italy. Above and beyond my expectations. Perfect hosts. Perfect place to stay. USA 2013-04-18

Helga Jones (Holiday 01) I would love to recommend the properties in Tropea. I have been there with my family and all the facilities mentioned in the advert were available. The Buttafuoco family were very helpful and answered emails promptly... the area is safe and unique with a lovely view. Would love to go again!! Malta 2013-02-12

Kate and Jon (Property Holiday 01) We had a fantastic holiday when we stayed in this villa. The gardens were great. We sat out most mornings and had our breakfast under the veranda. The air con worked really well and we were never too hot in the villa. The kitchen had everything you needed and we did eat in a few nights, but the restaurants in Tropea are fabulous. We went out for dinner most nights over our two week holiday and never went to the same place twice. There was so much variety. The beach and sea were perfect. We went to a few neighbouring towns, but we didn't think any were as nice as Tropea. Cristian, the owner, was very helpful. He lives in the house on the same plot of land, but he was only around if you needed something. In summary, great place to stay if you want to escape from it all. England 2012-08-12
Miriam Buryova I spent a week in July in this apartment with my boyfriend and my parents. Cristian, the owner, was very helpful since the beginning when we were emailing regarding the details - being 2 generations travelling together I was searching for something that can satisfy needs of all of us. Cristian met us at the train station upon our arrival and guided us to his apartment and gave us helpful information on places to shop, eat, about beaches, etc. The apartment was just what we needed - it was clean, spacious, had 2 bathrooms and in a short distance from the city center and market with fresh local products. The lovely beaches are 15 mins walk. Walking back can be a little challenging for those who are not that fit due to the steps, but the views are great and one can enjoy them while taking a break. Tropea itself is a beautiful town with lots of side streets, restaurants, cafes and great views. I definitely recommend Tropea, and this apartment, and we definitely plan to come back. Czech Republic 2012-07-22
Sam Carbone Stayed at Villa sita in Via Fontana Nuova a Tropea June 10th to 15th June 2012. Place was very beautiful and rooms clean.

The villa was really perfect for us and we especially enjoyed the sunny roof terrace and the magnificent views over Trope and the sea. England 2012-03-28

Maine Cristian and his family were delightful. He was very helpful in sharing information about Tropea and was available to assist us when we had particular concerns or needs during our stay. The villa, overlooking Tropea and the sea and the islands was very comfortable, with particular attention to details, both inside and out. We enjoyed the offerings of privacy on the roof terrace, sitting in the shady gardens, or being inside preparing meals. Situated on the hillside above town, the villa was close enough to walk to all amenities, including the beach, markets, and restaurants. We realize there are many wonderful rentals in Tropea, but can not imagine visiting again without staying at this villa.

Cliff.M. We just returned from a nice vacation in Tropea. Cristian Buttafuoco and his family were wonderful hosts and he provided valuable information to make our stay enjoyable. We stayed in the smaller of the two villas and it accommodated 2 adults and a child comfortably (the travel crib worked great for our son). The property is quiet, with a wonderful sea view and bearing lemon trees. The rooftop terrace provides an additional option for relaxing and/or eating. It's very close to the train station, but there must only be very light trains as you can barely hear them. The beach is about 5 minutes away by car (Beware that certain streets in the city center are only open to residents, so be sure to ask before you drive into town). There are at least two routes to get there, but the shorter one includes some narrow turns. The slightly longer route is a little easier to navigate. If you don't have a car, you can still walk to the city and beach. Just be advised that at night, the roads that lead to the villa can be quite dark and drivers can be aggressive, so be careful. The city center has many shops with souvenirs, there are also several restaurants you can enjoy. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Calabria, we would definitely like to stay here again!

Nicole Coppelmans A great holiday home with astonishing view! View on sea, Tropea, coastline and vulcano Stromboli. We had a nice breakfast and dinner in the patio in the sun or shade. The garden is full of roses and fresh lemons. If you love the Italians and their lifes, then this is the place to be! Owner and family (they live next door) are very hospitable. They surprised us with a spontaneous spaghetti lunch, Calabrian style. They helped us instantly with any question or request we had. The house is only 500 meters away from the beautiful village Tropea and its beach. We had a good swim in the clear water. Lots of good restaurants, market with great products. Railwaystation near village of Tropea. We visited the place beginning of May and the temperature was between 25 and 33 degrees Celcius. We visited the place with three adults and two children (9 and 11). Thanks Cristian Buttafuoco and your family! We had a great time! We recommand this property to anyone who loves Italy. Car recommended. Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Romantic Getaway.Nicole Netherlands 2010-05-16
Mark We were spending a wonderfull week in Tropea this summer. We are 2 adult pairs who loved it. Both the beatifull town with its narrow streets, good restaurants and beaches, but altso the apartement with its comfortable rooms and the nice , very helpfull family next door, the owners. Most of all we loved sitting in the warm evenings on the patio with a good meal and wine overlooking the town, the sea and Stromboli. This property can be recomended to everybody who likes to walk and be active.

Rosie We arrived and were met by a lovely, charming Italian family who live next door. Cristian was a very good host and was able to give us lots of information about the locality. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen and a really large living/dinning room for family meals. There is a good sized garden, but for our stay at Easter it was too early to make full use of the outside area. The view from the house across the town and the sea is stunning. The pleasant walk into town took 10 minutes but fifteen minutes when walking back up hill. Take a torch for dark evenings. Tropea is a fantastic town. It has many shops, cafes and restaurants. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The daily food market was great. Tropea has some of the best beaches we have ever visited.Recommended for: Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers Canada 2010-04-05
