The historic character of this central piazza has now been somewhat "swamped" by tourist activities of restaurants & gift shops. However very atmospheric in the evenings with lots of people

Central Pizza in Tropea, great for hanging out and people watching in the evening. It's very easy to find.

Busy square on the main Vittorio Emmanuele street with many restaurants and bars. Cannot miss it. On the corner is a nice old church.

There are always people here, even off season. It is the heart of the town. There are some nice shops and also restaurants, too.

In this piazza is a great pizza place. She makes the very best arancino balls with calabrese peppers inside. I got sick from eating them too fast. But, later realized I just needed to pace myself.
