What to see in Tropea: the historic town centre

Tropea’s historic town centre is it's beating heart, characterised by its little streets and alleyways, the small arts and crafts workshops and so many places to stop off for a drink or to try out the local specialities.

Other well-loved beaches, then, include Spiaggia della Rotonda, also known as the Little Rocks on the Sea, it is easy to walk to from the town centre.
Other fine beaches are Spiaggia del Cannone and Spiaggia di Isola Bella. To fully enjoy your beach visits, one of the most important parts of your trip to Tropea, why not stay at the VOI Le Muse Essentia, in a very handy position for reaching the local area and enjoying Tropea by night.

The Church of Santa Maria dell'Isola in Tropea

You get there by climbing a 190-step staircase and the Sanctuary is Tropea’s jewel. It is home to the statue of the Madonna of Romania, the town’s protector, and is a place of pilgrimage for many believers.
