Your guide to Trapani holidays
The ancient city of Erice overlooks Trapani, and visitors interested in exploring it can expect to find cobbled streets and well preserved medieval architecture. There are also some amazing views of the nearby islands of Favignana and Levanzo from the top.
The oldest buildings in Trapani date back hundreds of years, making it an unchanging place to spend the afternoon exploring. The fabulous Basilica Sanctuary of Maria Santissima Annunziata houses the marble statue of the Madonna di Trapani; and is certainly worth visiting. The Church of San Lorenzo, built in 1421, is another must-see attraction in the city and visitors will learn about the famed architect Giovan Biagio Amico inside
Before the holiday is over, head down to the harbour to check out The Torre Colombaia. It was once used as a prison, but it is now one of the main attractions of the area.
Trapani is home to several small beaches that provide holidaymakers with a chance to splash around in the waves. Many of the beaches are on the northern side of the peninsula, and offer excellent spots to work on an authentic Sicilian tan.
The resort of San Vito lo Capo is one of the most popular near Trapani. Not only does the wide beach offer plenty of water sports to try out, and plenty of space to stretch out on the sand, but it has also numerous restaurants, cafes and bars nearby. You won’t struggle to find somewhere to enjoy an evening drink as the sun goes down on Sicily.
If you fancy adding a day trip to your holiday itinerary then consider hopping over to the Egadi (Aegadian) Islands, just off the Sicilian coast. It’s easy to get there; you can take a short ride on a hydrofoil boat or ferry across to one of the islands.
