Last week we arrived in Tropea, a small town on the east coast of Calabria, in Southern Italy just in time to catch their glorious summer.
Cassandra's family is from Calabria so it was nice to visit but unfortunately we didn't get to visit Cassandra's parents hometown of Roccella Ionica.
As one of Italy's best kept secret holiday destination, Tropea has one of the best cliff side setting we've ever seen. It was an excellent place for a three-day getaway.
We made our way through the beautiful old town centre, indulged in fresh Italian food and discovered gorgeous beaches.
