is called the "Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea" and its old town towers imposingly on the steeply sloping rocky coast. The Cathedral of Santa Maria dell'Isola, perched on a cliff peninsula, exudes a very special charm, a feast for the eyes with an exciting history. Wide sandy beaches at the foot of the cliffs, which draws in and around Tropea, invite you to spend the day with swimming and from the cliffs you can see the volcanic island Stromboli lying in the sea.

With a lift through the rock and after 150 m of green footpath you get to the beautiful beach. The standard rooms have 3 stars, the deluxe rooms 4 stars with a location close to the elevator, the few superior deluxe rooms are best located, most close to the sea and have 4 stars.
La Pizzuta is situated 600 m from the village of Parghelia, and about 2 km from Tropea.
