Our location

Conte Ruggiero School is located in Calabria, a region in the extreme south of Italy, in the little village of Santa Domenica only 3 km far from the famous medieval town Tropea loved by visitors for its fascinating narrow alleys and its breathtaking views over the sea.

Santa Domenica is a nice, inviting village, with a little centre, which offers all for your daily needs, such as supermarkets, internet points, shops and bars.

The school itself is surrounded by a huge garden of trees and plants. Here you can find oranges, avocados and much more. Really close to the school there is the sea. The beaches are easy to reach, in about 15 minutes on foot you will reach the beach of "Formicoli". During high season you can find there chairs, umbrellas and a bar service.

By car or even by train you can arrive in a few minutes in Capo Vaticano, where you can find the famous beach and the viewing platform “Belvedere”. “Belvedere” and the lighthouse are one of the most striking features of the west coast of Calabria, “La Costa degli dei”. When the weather is good you can have a wonderful view over the islands Stromboli, Sicily and the volcano Etna!
