Trapani

The pride of Sicily's south-west coast, Trapani has been restored over the last few years to its original architectural splendour. many of the towns central streets, squares and boulevards have been pedestrianised and are filled with busy pavement cafés and restaurants. Baroque palaces and churches stand seemingly on every corner and the beautiful promenade of Mura di Tramontana provides a great spot to stretch the legs.

Trapani - Excursions and Places of interest

Vineyards

Visit the wine cellars of Marsala to learn about the production of the famous dessert wine as well as sampling and pairing it to local Sicilian dishes.

Cruises

The Egadi Islands are a small group of three charming islands just off the West Coast of Italy. Regular ferry services run from both Trapani and Marsala to Favignana, the largest of the three. Here you can spend a day hunting for hidden coves, lazing on isolated beaches or discovering great scuba diving spots. The pretty town of Favignana has a small port and two main Piazzas to stop for a coffee or bite to eat.

Natural areas of beauty

Situated between the seaside towns of Trapani and Marsala is the largest lagoon in Italy, the "Stagnone", the centre of sea salt production for the island and the rest of Italy, and also home to an amazing variety of wildlife. Now a designated marine nature reserve, the natural beauty of the salt pans are dotted with picturesque windmills, dating back to medieval times, and piles of harvested salt, gleaming white on the terracotta tiles of the storage areas.

Museums

The 17th Century tower "Torre del Ligny" located on the tip of Trapani's headland was once used to protect the coastline from Turkish Pirates; today it is home to a prehistoric museum and offers fantastic views of the town.

Castles

Built to defend the harbour of Trapani, Torre della Colombaia is an impressive offshore sea castle.

Architecture

Wander the eerie ruins of Selinunte, built in 628BC and once one of the richest and most powerful cities in the world, this site has now lain dormant for over 2000 years. Following a dramatic siege on the city in 409BC, in which it is thought around 16,000 of the cities inhabitants were either killed or taken into slavery, Selinunte was never rebuilt and today is one of the largest archaeological sites in the Mediterranean. These ruined temples and the nearby beach are well worth a visit during your holiday to Sicily.
