Travel Blogs from Tropea
After dealing with late and broken trains, we finally arrived in Calabria around 6 at night. Only 3 hours late. Tropea (troh-pay-ah) is where we stayed. I searched the internet for "The best beaches in Italy" and this one kept popping up so I booked us a room near the beach. It's a really small town, so everything is near the beach.
