If you have booked a flight to Sicily, you will most likely land in Trapani. We recommend you spend just one day to cover the most popular and magical parts of this city, which is in the northwest of Sicily. Here, we have broken down the information into a few amazing points that you can consider to enjoy the whole day in the city.

Top Attractions:

The Old Town:

You do not need to hire a taxi as you can easily visit the old town on foot. The short stroll through the narrow streets of the city will give you glimpse into this town’s past. Some of the oldest streets are Corso Italia, Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via Garibaldi.
Lonely tower, the Basilica of St. Lawrence, Saturn Fountain, the Twin Clock Tower and Church of the souls in purgatory are some of the admirable monuments and churches of the old town. If you are a shopping enthusiast, you will surely love the Via Giovanni Battista Fardella here.


You can see giant salt fields right in front of Trapani’s town. The windmills have become an icon of this Sicilian coast. Salt production in Trapani started in the 15th century and continued to be Trapani’s main industry for many upcoming centuries.
White heaps of salt prevent the salt from blowing away and aide in keeping it dry. The museum here explains the working of windmills with old tools and signage.


From the 14th century to the 19th century, the church was modified several times. Parts of the church were destroyed in the Second World War and underwent reconstruction. The west front of this church looks into the Piazza Saturno. You can cover two main destinations together.


If you want to visit the Aegadian Islands, simply go to Maretimmo - the widest and least touristic of the 3 three islands. It's a little far from Trapani but well worth the visit. You can go to Maretimmo by the road where you can enjoy the peace and sunshine here. We highly recommend you book a yacht trip with us so you can see the magnigicient sea caves in the area.
