Where is Trapani, Italy?

Trapani is perched on the northwestern coast of Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The town's strategic position between Africa and Italy has made it a powerful port for over 2,000 years, putting it at the center of numerous invasions and naval battles. 

Today, it is a quiet, medium-sized town tucked away from the country's more touristy cities, and is best known for its salt, wine, tuna, and almond pesto. It is also the gateway to the secluded Aegadian Islands, located about 15 miles offshore.

Things to Do in Trapani

After getting settled in your comfortable vacation rental, head out for a leisurely stroll through Trapani's picturesque streets and old town center. History buffs will be entranced by the city's 14th-century facades, wrought-iron terraces, and the windmills gracing the surrounding salt marshes. For a truly spectacular experience, ride the cable car to the top of Mount Erice, where you'll find an ancient village of cobblestone streets and medieval churches. Rumored to have been visited by both Hercules and Aeneas, this beautiful spot offers breathtaking views of the coastline curving out to sea below.

No trip to Trapani is complete without a visit to the tranquil Aegadian Islands, about 90 minutes away by ferry. Renowned for their azure blue waters, spectacular snorkeling, and serene, old-fashioned vibe, the islands are a great destination for anyone looking for a relaxing escape from the modern world.

For a truly wonderful Sicilian vacation, book a stay in our Trapani vacation rentals and enjoy a different pace of life!
