About the tour

Discover Italy's best-kept secret as you head off the beaten path in unspoilt Calabria. Step into a world of pristine beaches lapped by turquoise waters, rolling hills dotted with citrus trees, and sleepy, old-world towns bursting with charm.


What’s included


Day 1 - To Tropea

Meet at the airport for the flight to Lamezia Terme. From here, begin the journey to Calabria, a striking region in the 'toe' of Italy, almost untouched by tourism. You arrive in Tropea and check into your all-inclusive hotel.

  • Dinner
Day 2 - Tropea

You're introduced to Tropea with a guided walking tour, followed by free time to explore. In 2021, Tropea was named Italy's 'most beautiful village'. Perched on a rugged cliffside overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, Tropea epitomises Calabrian beauty. With dazzling white beaches, dramatic rock formations and a history bathed in myth and legend, the town offers a perfect introduction to the undiscovered delights of Calabria.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 - Stromboli

Enjoy a free morning in Tropea. Your hotel is close to the Old Town and offers a free shuttle service to its own private beach. This afternoon, catch a boat to Stromboli. Crowned by mighty Mount Stromboli, an active volcano that throws out small but regular eruptions, the island is nicknamed 'the lighthouse of the Mediterranean'. After time in Stromboli village, with its dramatic black sand beach and great restaurants and cafés, you leave by boat at sunset. This is the ideal time to admire the volcano's epic natural light show, as fountains of glowing crimson burst from its core against the night sky. You anchor nearby to experience the eruptions before returning to your hotel in Tropea.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 - Reggio di Calabria & Scilla

Today, travel by coach to Rosarno where we then travel by train to Reggio di Calabria, a coastal city that looks out across the ocean to Sicily. The waterfront here has been named 'the most beautiful kilometre in Italy', and you soak up its beauty on a guided tour. Admire views over the beach and blue-green waters before continuing to the fishing village of Scilla, where you're free to explore. Named after the Greek mythological sea monster Scylla, the town is packed with history. There are plenty of little bars and restaurants you could pop into for a glass of wine or bite to eat. Food in the region is simple and delicious, highlighting local produce like Calabrian chilli and 'Nduja, both delicious in a bowl of pasta. Later, you return to your hotel by rail.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5 - Tropea

You have a day free to relax or explore Tropea further. You could sit by the pool at the hotel with a refreshing drink from the all-inclusive selection. If you'd like to head out into Tropea there is much to explore in the historic centre of town, set high on the cliff overlooking the sea. Among the winding lanes of historic, pastel-coloured houses you'll find small piazzas where you can enjoy a coffee or gelato at an outdoor café. You might like to climb the steps up to the renovated church of Santa Maria dell'Isola, set on a hill above the sea. Or maybe discover another one of Tropea's white sand beaches.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 6 - Serra San Bruno & Stilo

Step back in time in Calabria's historic towns and villages, first visiting Serra San Bruno. This enchanting village is nestled in the mountains surrounded by woodland and crowned by a serene monastery. Discover the town's quaint centre filled with ancient stone buildings on an insightful guided tour. Next, visit rural Stilo, one of Italy's most beautiful towns, which looks over an endless green sea of olive groves and lush countryside down to the Ionian Sea. You have free time to explore its delightful jumble of narrow lanes, staircases and archways, which open onto quaint piazzas lined with tempting bars and coffee shops.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 7 - Pizzo

Take the train to Pizzo, a characteristic coastal town where pastel-coloured houses cling to the cliffside, leading to a sandy beach with crystalline waters. Arriving at the station, you transfer into the town centre by Ape Calessino, an iconic Italian vehicle made popular in the 1960s and still loved for its retro appeal. In Pizzo, you head to a local café to sample the town's famous speciality - Tartufo di Pizzo, a delicious chocolate and hazelnut gelato desert. You are then free to explore at your own pace. Relax by the sparkling waters, or perhaps visit the Chiesetta di Piedigrotta, a chapel filled with intricate statues carved out of a rocky cave, just a short walk from the town.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 8 - Home

Your holiday ends as you transfer to Lamezia Terme airport for your flight home.

  • Breakfast
