Trapani

Trapani is the center of the province of the same name, which also includes a group of Egadi islands in the north-west of the island of Sicily. The town got its name from the word „drepanon“ (sickle) – so the ancient Greeks called sickle-shaped promontory on which the city is located at the foot of Mount Erice. In Trapani is thriving the  tuna fishing and wine making (in Marsala), salt extraction, production of olive oil. The capital of Trapani is a kaleidoscope in which are mixed the traditions of Arabs, Normans, Greeks, Romans and Spaniards. The most important monument of the city is the sanctuary of the Virgin Mary, which is a mixture of different eras and styles.
Holidays in Trapani is not only a great vacation on the coast. Perhaps the most famous resort in the province are the three islands of the archipelago Egadi – Favignana, Levanzo and Marittima. On the coast is very popular Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo. In San Vito people come in the first place for its sea and beaches, it is difficult to single out one particular beach, so they are all beautiful and comfortable, and the sea is shallow near the coast. This place is famous for the delicious couscous, cooked with just fresh fish of different species, and this means that at any local restaurant, you will be offered such a dish. There is also to the International Festival «Cous Cous Fest» dedicated to this dish, where annually meet chefs from eight countries who prepare the couscous according to their own traditions. Nearby Trapani (32 km) is worth visiting the town of Marsala, it has lots of attractions, but is really famous for its winemaking traditions stored here from the XVIII century. This is where the best vineyards are located for wine „Marsala“. Marsala is also popular among windsurfers and kaytserfers.
In addition, you can have the Sicilian exotic vacation in many villages of the province: Calatafimi, Vale del Belise, Ghibellina. Here you can enjoy a quiet pace of life of Sicilian fishermen. If you are lucky, you will even be invited to a tuna fishing, which is called here „mattanza.“
