in Trapani with Rent a Car in Sicily
- Sicily’s peaceful holiday resorts
Trapani is a medium-sized town in the north-western corner of Sicily.
Its late medieval and early modern architecture gives a unique atmosphere
to this Mediterranean holiday resort, which is an ideal base to explore
Sicily thanks to its international airport.
Although there’s nothing left of the city's ancient monuments, the late
Renaissance and early Baroque architectural masterpieces give a unique
atmosphere to Trapani. The beautiful Basilica of Madonna di Trapani, the
Triton’s well, the Cathedral, the buildings of the Corso Vittorio Emanuele
and the ever-bustling port, both worth a mass.
The city is known all over Italy for its Easter procession, I Misteri,
in which a huge pilgrim crowd carries several religious statues from the
17-18th century around the city for hours, often for a whole day.
Trapani and the surrounding area offers great opportunities for hiking,
swimming, or you can also enjoy the shade of the museums. Trapani has
two main beaches. The Lido San Marausa and the Lido Giuliano. Both are
relatively close to the city centre. While you are on the beach, it worth’s
to check out the Maritime and Historical Museum of the city as well, which
was set up in a 17th century lighthouse – if you already saw everything
downstairs, you may want to climb the tower as well, which offers stunning
panoramic views of the city and the mountain behind the village, which
you may want to climb. From that mountain, Erice you can see the shores
of Africa as well.
