Are you planning to visit Tropea? Well, you should consider including Capo Vaticano in your itinerary. About 10km from Tropea, it is the epitome of untouched natural beauty. Capo Vaticano is breathtaking, giving you the most spectacular view of Calabria’s Tyrrhenian coastline.
For the best views, drive to the lighthouse and follow the “percorso panoramico”, a path taking you along the vast cliffs giving you a bird’s eye view of the beautiful sea waters crashing against the rocks and the enchanting secluded beaches below. On clear days you can also see the Aeolian Islands and Mt. Stromboli.
Take advantage of the incredible opportunities for snorkeling or, if you are less adventurous, boat excursions along the cliffs and hidden coves of Capo Vaticano or to the Aeolian Islands which are classified as an UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.
Capo Vaticano will certainly take your breath away and leave you with a greater understanding as to why this part of the Calabrian coast is known as La Costa degli Dei (Coast of the Gods).
