Tripani Holidays

Trapani holidays

Trapani, located on the north west coast, is the main ferry port for the islands of Pantelleria and the Egadi. Most of the town’s monuments and points of interest lay in the old town with vestiges of Spanish, Baroque and Moorish influence. The town itself, once enclosed by defensive walls, is a network of interconnecting, narrow streets, stretching across the peninsula to the sea. Today the town is renowned for its fine seafood and Sicilian cuisine, and makes a good base for visitors exploring this part of the island. Some interesting points of call are the medieval, walled, hilltop town of Erice (15km), Marsala - famed for its sweet Marsala wine (32km), the white sand beaches of San Vito lo Capo (39km) and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte (96km).

Perched 750 metres above sea level, west of Palermo, is Erice. This well preserved medieval town’s origins are shrouded in mystery, part fantasy and part reality. Surrounded by ancient walls, the town is reserved and quiet with magnificent views over the Egadi Islands. Located on the coast below is the small fishing village of Bonagia in Valderice-Mare, home to an impressive 6th century tower ‘Torre Saracena’ which today houses the Tonnara museum filled with many archeological treasures valued among the richest in Sicily. Close-by is the Zingaro Nature Reserve - one of the most picturesque and untouched places on the island as well as the well preserved archeological site of Segesta.

The towns of Marsala and Mazara del Vallo are located on Sicily’s west coast. Marsala, famed for its sweet desert wine, is an attractive town with arcaded courtyards, high ageing buildings and two excellent museums – Museo Marsala housing archeological finds and Museo degli Arazzi with wonderful hand-stitched wool and silk tapestries depicting the capture of Jerusalem. Whereas the historic centre of Mazara del Vallo, also a major fishing port, houses the Piazza della Repubblica reputed to be one of the most beautiful Baroque squares in Sicily.
