What People Are Saying About Tropea
Our driver, Francesco, knew enough English to give us restaurant recommendations and carry on light conversation. He was at the gate exit with a sign, helped all 3 of us with our bags and was very pleasant. We had airline problems, kept in contact with the company via email (we were a day late arriving) and the driver was there, no problems. It was a comfortable van, 37 miles and 45-60 minutes to the resort in Tropea.
After pick up by coach from hotel the 3 deck boat took us from Tropea to Stromboli. Easy swapping net voucher for tickets at port. The boat was medium sized, the crossing smooth. The boat was pretty full when we went in July but not uncomfortably so. At Stromboli disembarked. Time to swim off the black sand and pebble beach near the harbour, grab a drink and bite to eat and walk the gentle 15 mins slope up to town to see church, a few shops and great gelateria. Smoking volcano high above dominates. Re-embarked to go to rear of Stromboli and, as dusk set, see the impressive sometimes spectacular red lava shoot up some meters above the crater's lip each few minutes - stayed just right time. Then trip back to Tropea under the stars. My 11 and 9 year olds found it an enjoyable, if long half day. Coach took us smoothly home at 00.00. Great chance to see Stromboli! Sgr Luigi also did our airport/hotel transfers, great, speaks pretty decent English, was very reliable and keen to help.
