What people are saying about Reggio Calabria

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 18 reviews

in tropea 99% of the tourists are German. so the tour is in German. you have to know that. the guides are great and give us the main information in Italian. Before leaving Brazil you have to study a minimum of Italian. otherwise the excursion is excellent. reggio is beautiful and the Italians are friendly. Scilia is called Venice of the South, it has its charms.

A nice outing

Very nice shame about the weather. Too many things to see in a short time. The only unexpected thing was the ticket that didn't match the name and number. But in the end it went well.
