TROPEA, Italy — The Calabrian seaside town of Tropea, six hours by train south of Rome, is hardly a secret. Sun-seeking Italian, British and German tourists come by the droves in summer. But compared to better-known Italian resort towns, it attracts few Americans, and off-season, being here can feel like wandering into a party waiting to happen.
