Rome to Tropea (actually Peschici to Tropea)  (3 Answers)

We are spending 3 weeks in Peschici and then 4 weeks in Tropea and wanted to know the best way to get to Tropea. Do we need to come back to Rome first or can we get there from Peschici? We don't care if it takes a little longer. Any help would be appreciated.

From Tropea / Reggio Calabria to Stromboli / Volcano

we will be in Zambrone since 15/06 till 20/06.

Do You think there will be a chance to hike near the volcano of Stromboli in this timing?
I read that the ferries are starting since 20/06. Maybe some small agency can offer this trip....?

But I am not interessted in one of those mentioned trips, where You can just visit the Stromboli for 1 hour and use it for shopping or something and then You can see the island just from the boat. We would like to have a hiking trip to see it really from the top.

We will have a car, so we can depart from both areas, Tropea or Reggio Calabria.

If there will be a combination let's say with Volcano island, it would be completely perfect. But this would not be probably possible to combine during one day.

Thanks in advance for Your advices and recommendations or experiences.

Flying into Rome, visiting Amalfi coast, with time share in Tropea  (8 Answers)

My fiance and I are planning our Honeymoon and would like to base it around a timeshare week in Tropea the last week of September. We plan on flying into Rome, spending a couple days there then driving to Naples where we would rent a car and drive to Tropea. We would love to spend time on the Amalfi coast/Capri/Sorrento but would have this week long time share in Tropea. We are planning on spending 10 days total in Italy. Can anyone give some insight on what the best way to do Rome/Napels/Tropea? Once in Tropea, would it be worth it to go back up to Naples for a day or two or should we get it out of the way on the way down to Tropea? Any suggestions on what we could do in the Tropea area for a week? We are on a budget and just want to make our trip the most efficient :-) Thanks for your help!

Tropea to Taormina.  (7 Answers)

Ciao everyone! We are going to visit Tropea and Taormina in September. I know there is the train from Calabria to Sicily but wonder if there is a way to go by the boat? Like a water taxi or sightseeing boat? Also we are debating if to rent the car for the whole trip or locally if we will want to go places. Maybe taxis is safer and cheaper? Thank you in advance.

Airport Transfer  (2 Answers)


I am heading to Tropea next week and was hoping for some advice on getting there from Lamezia airport.

I land at around 19:30pm and as far as I can tell, my only option at that time will be to get a taxi (I will not be hiring a car for my trip). I have been given a quote of 70 Euro with a pre-book taxi service but have no idea if this is a fair price or whether I will be better off just finding one at the taxi rank at the terminal.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Tropea travel  (3 Answers)

Is it possible to catch a ferry/hydrofoil, or train from Tropea, (or some where close by) to Sorrento (or some where close by?) We would like to leave Tropea and travel to the Amalfi coast area. So far our best option appears to be to fly from Lamezia,Terme to Naples, and then travel on the hydrofoils from there.

Besides the beach and cafes, what is there to do in this area?  (2 Answers)

I was there a while ago in July and besides the beach and visiting local towns, what activities, nature, famous things can we see in the area? For example Rome and Florence is full of attractions, I am not expecting that much but I need to justify my drive from Rome to Calabria with something worth to see and do. As for beaches, when I was there one July we couldn't even go to the beach even though the hotel took us because the tide was too strong.. what to do then? Thanks.

Budget Accommodation in Tropea  (3 Answers)


I'd like to spend anywhere from 3-5 days in Tropea at the end of August. I know this is high season, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any budget accommodation? I've tried searching on the internet and the cheapest I can find is close to 100 euros a night. Are there also budget alternatives for backpackers? I'm still a student, and I am not fussy about comfort or a nice room. I'm happy with basic accommodation, all I'd like is a bed and place to shower. Someone once told me about the possibility of staying in convents for cheap - is this possible?

Any suggestions?

Thanks very much,

tropea vs taormina for language school  (7 Answers)

I'm currently trying to decide between spending 2 weeks in either Tropea or in Taormina to take some Italian courses. I will be travelling solo and am in my late 20s. Would anyone who has been to both places be able to offer an opinion on how the two locations are different and what kind of experience I'd have in one over the other? Would one be more fun? (night-life, things to do, energy in the town, friendliness of the locals, where do more young people tend to go to travel, etc.)

Thanks very much!
