In a place full of contrasts, where the Gulf of Tropea harbors dozens of bays and where you can enjoy the beauty of the turquoise sea and the unique scent of the Mediterranean, is located an ancient fisher town, named Briatico. Every morning, you can buy good and fresh seafood directly from the boats. Briatico, situated on the Tyrrhenian coast, is a beloved touristic place, characterized by crystal sea and sandy beaches, rocky and wild coasts, offering a unique beauty panorama. Also, you can taste the gastronomic treasures of Calabria and experience the ancient folk traditions of the place. Briatico is one of the best destinations for those, who enjoy the quiet, but at the same time want to live within short distance from the lively towns of Tropea, a destination for tourists from all over the world, and Pizzo, with its spectacular view over the sea and its monuments and the ancient village, that remain forever in the hearts of those who visit this city.

In only 1 hour drive, you can immerse yourself in the green woods and in the beauty of the mountains of Sila. Only 30 minutes from the international airport of Lamezia Terme and 15 minutes from the train station.

To visit: the ruins of the ancient castle, which has been destroyed by the earthquake in 1783; the Tower of St. Irene and La Rocchetta, the only  remains of a complex defensive system, directly on the beach; the Church “Matrice di San Nicola di Bari” that shelters most of the works that adorned the religious buildings of  the erstwhile village.

Beaches: Punta Safò and La Torretta, where you will find huge expanses of sandy beaches, and Punta Scrugli, La Brace, Sant’Irene, who, with their mixture of sandy beaches and cliffs are, however, ideal for diving.

    Briatico è su una rocca a picco sul mare, la cittadina è di 2000 per sone e d' estate ospita 10000 persone, apparte la pulizia delle sue spiagge e del paese, offre uno spendido tramonto su stromboli e un incantevole vista sul golfo di S Eufemia. Il mercato tipico il giovedì la guardia medica aperta tutta la notte e molti utili esercizi commerciali per tutte le esigenze.
