Overview
Enjoy a half-day tour of one of the most beautiful corners of Italy. Discover Calabria with its beautiful lookout points on the Tyrrhenian Coast, try typical Calabrian specialties, and visit the pearls of Calabria.
What to Expect
This entertaining half-day tour is an absolute must for every visitor to Calabria. In the early afternoon, head to the legendary Capo Vaticano. This is the most beautiful lookout point on the Tyrrhenian Coast with its small white lighthouse, which is still in use and guides the ships on their ways to the Aeolian Islands. A small panoramic trail leads you past giant prickly pear trees. An incredible view awaits you at the end, a picture-perfect postcard image: the view over the seven Aeolian Islands, which lie like pearls on a string.

Look out at the strait that divides Calabria and Sicily. This place gives you the chance to take unforgettable vacation photos, while becoming completely enchanted. The Calabrians tell tales of why this is such a special place. The legend talks about enfolding beautiful Canfora in a Turkish blue robe, to quell the Saracens and lengthen their freedom. Because of this, the water is a unique Turkish blue and as clear as the Caribbean, even in sandy coves.

And now comes the spicy part of the tour. Traditional Calabrian specialties await you. Experience Calabria with all your senses and try the "'Nduja" of Calabria, a sausage made with pepperoncino, as well as fine pasta with fresh olives and herbs with fresh bread, and the gold of Calabria, the lovely olive oil, and of course a glass of wine.

End the tour on a high note as your tour guide leads you from the pearl of Calabria to the little coastal town of Tropea, which sits high on the cliffs. Experience the Dolce Vita between the old Italian alleyways and the Palazzos full of pomp and gorgeous entryways. Inhale the aroma of fresh espresso in cafes and diverse herbs that can be found in the little corner shops.
