329--Italy: Tropea
@ CherieSpotting     Oct 18 2005 - 11:06 PST
cherie writes: In Calabria, a region in southern Italy, the green hills spill into the sea at a place called Tropea. Here the beaches are pristine, the architecture charming, the people are friendly, and the food is divine.

Snuggled up against the aquamarine Tyrrhenian coast is a town with unmatched charm. If you stuffed your foot into the boot of Italy, you’d call your bunion Tropea. Come and see what life is like in this small Italian town where life is simple and laughter is hearty.
