Trapani - 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.
