Tropea is a municipality located within the province of Vibo Valentia, in Calabria. The town is a famous bathing place, situated on a reef, in the gulf of St. Euphemia. The town of Tropea has almost completely preserved its XVIth century planning and is both historically and architecturally fascinating. The Tropea marina was built in 2005 with all facilities for sailors (supermarket, bar, showers and wifi). The Aeolian Islands are only 30 miles from Tropea, closer than they are from Vibo Valentia.
