The local area
The nearest town is Pizzo which is 10 minutes drive away. This historic town has many shops, restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlours. If you want to taste the best then grab a taste of Tartufo ( a chocolate and hazelnut ice cream (gelato) shaped as a rough sphere, containing chocolate fudge sauce and coated in cocoa powder and sugar)
We particularly like the main square (Piazza della Repubblica) which has a number of restaurants, one of which overlooks the sea. It serves some great fish and pasta dishes and the wine is superb.
Slightly further away is the larger town of Tropea with its amazing beaches and shopping areas. You can also visit the awesome monastery which is situated on a cliff overlooking the beach or Piedigrotta (an amazing cave full of carved statues)
If you enjoy good food and wine then the region has a number of small hidden restaurants, including one actually on the beach! Food is full of flavour and if you want a real pizza then this is the place to come.
You can also get a taxi or for a real treat you can also be picked up in a three wheeled "tuk tuk" - open to the elements but a brilliant way to get to the town and back!
