Trapani Guide

The Italian city of Trapani is located on the island of Sicily and is the capital of the Province of Trapani. The city's history dates back to the Elymians and is an important fishing port and the gateway to the Egadi Islands. Popular attractions in the city include its churches in general and its restored cathedral in particular. The Cattedrale di San Lorenzo was built during the 14th century and underwent a later Byzantine facelift. Also popular in the city is the Chiesa del Purgatorio which contains the sculptures that are carried through the city during its famous Easter procession. On Good Friday these twenty wooden statues, known as the Misteri, are carried through the streets by robed citizens.

Located away from the city centre are the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala which is famous for its wine and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. Another popular excursion when in Trapani is to visit the nearby Egadi islands which can be reached in around 30 minutes. They are the perfect place to relax, swim, scuba dive or just to potter around.

From Trapani's port, ferries leave for islands like the remote Pantelleria as well as Naples, Cagliari in Sardinia and Tunisia.

Marettimo Guide

The Italian island of Marettimo is the most remote of the three Egadi Islands which lie off Sicily's west coast. The island, which is simply a rocky ridge that protrudes out of the Mediterranean, lies within a marine nature reserve and is a popular destination for scuba divers, walkers and simply for those seeking a tranquil break. The island only has one town, also called Marettimo, and is a fishing town that has a number of quite humble pale coloured square houses.

The ferries using the island's pretty harbour moor up alongside fishing vessels and diving school boats and is a short distance from another small harbour that is mainly used only by fishermen. Passengers disembarking rom a ferry do so right into the narrow streets of Marettimo where they are greeted by a lovely cosmopolitan atmosphere. At first the island may seem similar to other Mediterranean islands but upon closer inspection, and after a bit of exploring, the island's Italian charm shines through as smart stairways and little catholic shrines are uncovered. Marettimo is around 40 minutes by hydrofoil from Favignana, and an hour from Trapani.
