Even if you come to Tropea to learn Italian, you will probably not want to pass all your time doing exercises and reading grammar books! It is possible to spend pleasant afternoons at the beach, at the countryside or on the hill, enriching your knowledge of Tropea and its surrounding areas.
If you want to organize your own free time, Tropea and thw whole Region have a lot to offer, including the towns of Pizzo with its tasty gelaterie and the popular “Tartufo” ice cream, Serra San Bruno and its stunning “Certosa” monastery, Reggio Calabria and its fascinating National Archaeological museum (with the famous Bronzi di Riace) and many other possibilities. In Tropea there are also tennis and soccer courts, gyms. Then sail and diving agencies, located at the tourist port, are ready to show you our wonders, both the coasts and the seabed.
During the summer the cultural life in Tropea and in the area nearby is very varied: food festivals (“Tropea Cipolla party“, wine, cheese and salami fest), modern and classical concerts (“Tropea Blues Festival” and “Armonie della Magna Grecia“), theater (“Tropea teatro d’aMare“).
Calabria is a perfect mixture between landscape and culture, history and deep traditions. In fact, our Region is located in the extreme south of the Italian peninsula, surrounded by crystal clear waters of the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian Sea, separated from Sicily only by the Strait of Messina.
The Mediterranean climate, the turquoise blue sea, the white beaches, the wild and mysterious mountains, the intense aromas and the authentic local cuisine, as well as the traces of its past make Calabria a unique place in the world, suitable for both tourists and temporary residents.
A perfect spot for all nature lovers, lovers of fragrances and ancient sites and for those seeking an original and genuine landscape, rich in history and local legends.
All our courses are supplemented by a program of excursions that allow participants to explore both the past and the present of the Region. The following activities and excursions are arranged direct by our cultural center and the participation is optional.
