Trapani is a city located on the western sea of Sicily. It is an important port. Fishing and the production of Marsala wine are the main activities. It is very close to Aegadian islands: it takes just 30 minutes by boat to reach Favignana, the main island. The historical center is rich in Baroque monuments: the Palace of Giudecca, the cathedral, the church of Sant Agostino has a beautiful rose window on the front, probably the largest in Sicily. From here you can have a trip to Erice by cable way. Erice is a medieval city at the top of a hill overlooking Trapani: the surrounding panorama is breathtaking, most of all at sunset. Walking among the narrow alleys of the village is romantic and relaxing: there are many restaurant where it is possible to try the Sicilian specialties.
