Trapani is the largest town in western Sicily, a distinctive region of whitewashed houses and wild coastline. Trapani was an important trading center during the medieval era, occupying a key position on the Mediterranean. It's more tranquil these days, but its old town has a few traces of past glories and some elegant squares. Trapani is a relaxing place to stay, in contrast to the bustle and clamor of eastern Sicily. Online accommodation specialist Venere offers Trapani hotels to suit a range of preferences and budgets. Venere's site includes an interactive map feature that indicates the proximity of major sights, along with an easy-to-use booking system so you can reserve your Trapani rooms in advance.
What's Trapani Like?
Trapani's heyday was in the middle ages and the old town bears more than a few medieval traces. The Jewish quarter features winding streets and alleys around the distinctive 16th-century Palazzo della Giudecca with its imposing tower and ornate Spanish-style windows. Trapani's churches are sightseeing highlights, notably the 16th-century Santa Maria di Gesu and the 14th-century Sant'Agostino with its Gothic doorway. The Chiesa del Purgatorio displays the life-sized 18th-century mannequins, the Misteri, that are carried in procession around Trapani every Good Friday. The town has local beaches but one of the most popular excursions is the hydrofoil trip over to the Egadi Islands for fishing, swimming, or climbing. The other popular outing from Trapani involves a cable-car journey 2,500 ft up to the atmospheric mountain village of Erice, where the views can stretch as far as Tunisia on a clear day. Trapani hotels offer an excellent base for exploring the region of western Sicily.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Trapani
Trapani is off the tourist trail, so brush up on your basic Italian. Sicilians tend to be conservative so it's important to dress respectfully before visiting churches and to dress nicely when dining out. It makes sense to eat Sicilian cuisine in Trapani, which means plenty of fresh fish, tuna, grilled sardines, and seafood served with couscous to remind you of the proximity of north Africa. The sweet Marsala wine of the region has been joined by wines made from the local grape varieties, Grillo, Inzolia, and Nero d'Avola.
