Lamezia Terme and Tropea / Capo Vaticano is about 70km away. Depending of your arrival time, there is not always the possibility to take the train and get to Tropea, as there is no train at that time, they are pretty rare.
Some people book a night in Lamezia Terme, so the next day they could get by train to Tropea. I do not think there is too much sense to do this way, as Lamezia as city does not really offer anything. I would not waste any time of my vacation staying there.
Taxi costs about 100 Euro to get to Tropea from the airport.
I had in the summer of 2017 a lot of clients, who asked me to organise transfer for them. Depending on the quantity of travelers, I have different vehicle, as well as car or minibus, or even big buses for 55 person.
Price 25 Euro per trip.
Some of the time I do the transfer by myself, and mostly I cooperate with other taxi companies.
If we have the chance to meet personally on the airport, then you will be lucky enough to get a lot of information from me while we are driving your holiday destination.
According to my experience, the tourist I get to know during the transfer, come to me to ask for help or any assistance while they are staying in Calabria. It makes me glad, because I want everybody to feel good here and have the time of their lifes.
