Trapani: a pinch of Sicilian beauty
Unique salt flats on top of a lagoon, sunny beaches, mountains, and rocky shores are all objects surrounding Trapani. Your holiday in Sicily is best begun here, in the west, where Trapani shores are playfully washed by the Tyrrhenian Sea.
How to travel?
It’s really easy to reach this city from Lithuania, as direct cheap flights from Kaunas will only take 3 hours, and you’ll be able to step into the sunny streets of Trapani.
After arriving, you can always continue your holiday trip to further corners of the charming island of Sicily using a bus, a train, or simply by renting a car.
What to taste?
We recommend indulging in a tasting of the traditional Trapani dish, couscous with fish or other seafood. Trapani is long famous for its fisheries, and seafood is the choice for most meals here. If you don’t much like couscous or seafood, choose busiate al pesto trapanese instead. It is homemade pasta with almond pesto sauce. By the way, you can also try some fresh tuna in Trapani. After a meal of seafood or pasta, it’s dessert time! The most popular sweet local delicacy is the “Genovese con crema” pastries.
What to see?
Your acquaintance with the city is best started from the baroque old town of Trapani. Here you can find the luxurious Saturn piazza and the Basilicas of St. Lawrence and Trapani, and you can also take a walk down the beautiful Corso Vittorio Emanuele Street.
Right ahead of the Trapani gate to the sea, there opens a unique landscape view. It will let you observe the salt flats, which is a place where salt is, to this very day, mined using an ancient method of the Phoenicians. The whole ensemble consists from windmills, white stacks of salt, water catchment areas, and far-away peaks of the Aegadian (Egadi) Islands, and it creates an extraordinary landscape. By the way, you can also visit the nearby Trapani Salt Museum.
Just on the outskirts of the city, there is the location of the Mount Erice, on top of which a charming medieval town is located. If you use a cable car, you will be able to see a panorama view of the whole Trapani, and the Tyrrhenian Sea too. You should also definitely pay a visit to the Aegadian Islands, famous for their gorgeous beaches in all of Sicily.
What to do?
Trapani province is where most of the Sicilian wine is produced. You should therefore visit at least one of the many wineries here, wander around wine cellars, and listen to a story or two about the wine-making history. The most famous Trapani-made wine in Sicily is Marsala. It is likened to the stronger and sweeter tasting Port and Madeira wine sorts.
In the evening, follow the rhythm of Italian life and spend your time tasting delicious traditional dishes in various cafés and bars to the pleasant tune of Italian melodies.
