Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Trapani is a very attractive and lively port city on the west coast of Sicily. Look beyond the modern city and ferry port to find gems such as the Corso Vittorio Emanuele with its beautiful buildings which were the homes of rich citizens in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The city’s link with mythology and the sea is further shown by the impressive Triton’s Fountain with its ornate stonework.  If you get the chance to, drive your hire car down to the port and sit, people watching, as the Italians go about organising the ferry cargoes to Tunisia.
