Tropea, the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenean Sea”, stands on an imposing cliff and it is the proof of an ancient history and tradition. Walking in the old town with its narrow streets and countless bars and cafés, the wealthy old noble families have left their mark: old palaces, portals with family’s crests and wonderful decorated courtyards. One of the main building of the city is the Norman Cathedral of the 12th century.
You will make a short walk to Pizzo Calabro, a small town with 9000 inhabitants, surrounded by lakes and mountains, and immersed in a setting of orange trees, old olive groves and flourishing vineyards. From here you will enjoy a charming and picturesque view. This place was called Pizzo Napita in the past: this name goes back to Napeto, who was the chief of a tribe. After the Trojan War they reached this small town through the Mediterranean Sea. Ruggero Normanno built a hunting lodge in 1070. The population learnt the art of fishing tuna fish and corals. The town hosts a wonderful Aragon castle from the 15th century.
