What to do and see in Trapani!

Le Saline of Marsala and Trapani

Among suggestive windmills that are reflected on pools of brackish water and white heaps of crystals that shine on the sunlight, the “Via del Sale” offers an unique mix of lights and colors at nightfall. Along the stretch of coast that leads from Trapani to Marsala, a mirror of low water stretched out on the island of Mozia and the Egadi, contains the secrets of the cultivation of sea salt: a practice that has lived here since the most remote ages.

Erice

A medieval village suspended beetween heaven and earth, where art, history and traditions interwine along stone paths enriched by noble palaces, small Baroque churches, courtyards and ancient shops of local artisans with pottery and colorful carpets on display. From the “Castello di Venere” to the “Chiesa della Matrice”, breathtaking views embrace the western hinterland of Sicily, up to the suggestive Egadi Island.

Scopello e Segesta

From the ancient Tonnara di Scopello, a few steps from the Zingaro Reserve, along one of the most beautiful stretches of cost on the island, to the archaelogical park of Segesta. Hills dotted with ancient villanges, in a territory where history has left indelible evidence. On the hill overlooking the Doric-style temple, the Segesta Theater. Partly excavated in the rock of the hill, celebrates the representations of classical works in the summer.

Centro Storico Arabo di Mazara del Vallo

The fishing boats that animate the harbor, the song of the muezzin that spreads in the air and mixes with the scents of spices and fish couscous, along a picturesque maze of alleys decorated with majolica. The ancient Arab casbah of Mazara retains a still vivid imprint of Muslim domination, which embodieds and emanates memory from every corner of its walls: a timeless place, where different cultural identities merge wisely.

Favignana

The clear sea, the calm, the intense flavours—the island of Favignana, just a few kilometres off the Trapani coast, is the epitome of an authentic Sicilian holiday. The island of Favignana is known as the “farfalla” (butterfly) of the Egadi islands due to its shape. Its ancient name of Aegusa underlines this characteristic, while its current name derives from the Favonio (foehn) wind which blows in from the west, facilitating the mild climate on the island.

Levanzo

The smallest of the Egadi Islands. Clear and crystalline sea, with suggestive sand beaches.
The “Grotta del Genovese” is very famous, dating back to the Paleolithic-Neolithic period with its splendid graffiti and paintings on the wall. Here time seems to stand still.

Marettimo

Marettimo is the wildest and most unspoiled of the Egadi islands. Thanks to its position, the furthest of the Egadi islands, to the impervious nature of the mountain and to scarce impact of man on the environment, it preserves a very precious vegetative and faunistic heritage. Marettimo, with its crystal clear sea, is rich in caves, both emerged and submerged, to visit.

Palermo

The city of Palermo is an immense and ideal embrace with the Tyrrhenian sea. The Sicilian capital offers itself with the typical beauty of the cities of the Mediterranean area. The Phoenicians, founders of the city, called it Aziz (the shining one), but it was the Arabs before and the Normans later that made the historic city center a long theory of extraordinary architectural beauties that became UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The characteristic markets such as’ La Vucciria or ‘Il Capo’ are the places to taste the typical specialties of Palermo street food.
