Day 9

Pizzo & Tropea

Join our

included excursion to Pizzo and

Tropea, the two most precious

jewels of the Tyrrhenian coast of

Calabria. Our first stop is Pizzo

Calabro, a beautiful fishing village

with a historical centre

characterised by narrow streets and

small squares. You can visit the

small church of Piedigrotta, which

is excavated in limestone cliffs right

above the sea. There are around

140 steps down so sensible

footwear is a must. We continue to

Pizzo itself, which is situated on a

steep cliff overlooking the Gulf of

Santa Eufemia. High above the sea

is the Aragonese Castle, which was

built by Ferdinand I of Aragon in the

15th century. The historical centre

is characterised by narrow lanes

and streets with many

interconnecting stairways and

some squares with fountains.

Before leaving Pizzo, you should try

the famous Tartufo (truffle ice

cream), highly recommended!

We continue to Tropea, where you

will have the opportunity to explore

the historical centre with its ancient

palaces and Norman cathedral.

Admire the incredible views and

relax in one of the many bars that

line the squares of this most

beautiful resort.
