Dates & Prices


Departure at 8:00 am from Lido train station, Reggio Calabria.
Excursion along the famous Costa degli Dei ("Coast of the Gods"), a mythological place especially known for the turquoise color of the sea and its cliffs  hiding white and unspoiled beaches. Tropea is called the "Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea", it's characteristic for the cliffs overlooking the sea, on which the old houses insist; the most famous panoramic point is the one from which you can admire the Sanctuary of Santa Maria dell'Isola, so called because it's located on a small island that rises from the sea. In the historical center of Tropea you can visit: the Duomo, with Arabian features, other ancient churches and palaces; the Museum of Ancient Crafts is also very particular. After the  lunch, (for those who wish) that will be held in one of the typical restaurants to taste the excellent local cuisine, we will continue to Pizzo. It is another ancient historical center where we'll find the Castle of Murat. In this castle Gioacchino Murat, king of Naples, was held prisoner and later sentenced to death in 1815: now it's a museum and houses some historical reconstructions and testimonies of those tragic events. The visit to the Church of Piedigrotta is not to be missed: the cave church was built in the 17th century by some Neapolitan shipwrecked sailors and entirely decorated with many big statues hewn out of tufa stone. In Pizzo you can also taste the famous "Tartufo" ice cream in one of the many ice-cream parlors.
