    It is perfect for history and culture lovers as well as for nature and hiking enthusiasts.

    Between good food and tradition, it is the land of bergamot, licorice, silk, Tropea onion, ‘Nduja and chili pepper.

    Furthermore, you can find a special tradition of craftmanship that is typical of beautiful Calabria: the Calabrian guitar making.

    The city stands on a rocky outcrop by the sea. The historical center is an interweaving of churches, monuments and buildings from the Middle Ages as well as from the Baroque time and the 19th century.

    The oldest part of the city is on a hill at the foot of the Svevo Normanno Castle.

    Vibo Valentia with its historic center, just a few kilometers from Tropea, Capo Vaticano, Marina di Zambrone and Pizzo Calabro, is the backdrop for this anyways.experience.


    THE LUTE MAKERS THE CALABRIAN TRADITIONThe tradition of guitar making has been passed down from generation to generation. It is a story of experienced hands who shape the wood to model an instrument.

    This experience is a tribute to the masters of sound and craftsmanship and to the tradition of the Calabrian guitar makers.

    The guitar was brought to Italy by the Arabs, who introduced it to Sicily and Calabria around the IX-X centuries.

    This tour will be a journey to discover this world through art and sound.

    Our guitar maker is a very passionate person who spends his days smelling the wood and creating his works of art.

    During this tour, you will learn more about this art, watch part of the realisation of an instrument, take part in it and hear the sounds that result from it.

    A small tasting of local products rounds off the offer.
