In this one-week tour, you will discover the beauty of the Coast of the Gods in Calabria by bike and by boat, enjoying an experience as if you were a local! You will be guided on fantastic bike rides along the coast and inland, even having the opportunity to see two seas in one day!

The highlights of your trip will include: of course, Tropea, classified as the most beautiful village in Italy in 2023, which needs no introduction. You will discover its crystal-clear sea on the tour to Capo Vaticano, its ancient history, and its typical products. Zungri: a rural village in the Vibonese countryside famous for its cave dwellings, the coast-to-coast from Soverato to Pizzo at the narrowest point between the two seas of Italy, and many other gems that you will discover only by participating in the tour. Accommodation will be in a fantastic villa with a pool just 3 minutes from the center of Tropea.

The villa is located in Tropea in the station area. The structure is spread over two floors: on the first floor, there is the living area with a large living room, a spacious kitchen and dining room with an outdoor garden where you can have meals and spend convivial moments. Upstairs, there is the sleeping area with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a shower. Outside, there is the annex, which is a true two-room apartment, with a small living room, bedroom, and bathroom. The annex has a large terrace overlooking Stromboli. In the garden, the pool is at your disposal. The pool is 16 meters long and 8 meters wide, and around it, you can relax on loungers and deck chairs.

Transfer by shuttle to Soverato (CZ) in the morning at 8:00 am, arrival at 9:30 am, and departure for the 55 km tour from Soverato to Pizzo. The tour is called coast to coast because you will have the opportunity to see two seas in the same day: the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian. I recommend dipping your feet in both seas, both at the start and at the end! It brings good luck! The tour starts from the sea, goes up to the mountains, crosses villages and forests, and plunges back into the sea. Along the way, lunch is planned in the village of Monterosso and in Pizzo, you will taste a typical ice cream: the truffle. A delicacy of hazelnut, chocolate, and melted chocolate heart. At the end, return to Tropea by shuttle and free dinner.

Friday – 30 km or visit to the village of Chianalea
You will be tired from the previous day!! but I want to leave you a choice: a last bike ride of about 30 km, relaxation on the beach in Capo Vaticano or Tropea, or transfer by shuttle to Scilla and visit to the village of Chianalea with lunch based on octopus sandwich. Whatever your choice, in the evening everyone to the pizzeria for the farewell dinner!!
