The Province of Trapani juts out into the sea from Sicily's west, between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Canal of Sicily. This enchanting land is composed of marvelous coasts that alternate with steep cliffs and endless beaches. The archaeological remains and the small villages where the most authentic traditions are still part of daily life make the Province a very attractive tourist destination.
The Trapani Coast, one of the most impressive in Italy, comprises very valuable naturalistic spots, particularly the Gulf of Castellamare, with its seafront full of cliffs and stacks alternating with beautiful beaches. Scopello is particularly renowned for its sea stacks and for its transparent sea. Part of this enchanting scenery is San Vito Lo Capo, with its white beaches and waters of the most brilliant hues.
The Trapanese province encloses an extraordinary natural heritage, starting with the renowned Egadi Islands and the splendid volcanic Isle of Pantelleria, genuine oases that should not go undiscovered.
Innumerable protected areas such as the Zingaro Natural Reserve, which stretches out along the coast and reefs, inlets and marine cliffs a sheer drop to the blue sea, covered by thick Mediterranean scrub. In proximity with Trapani, the particularly breathtaking landscapes are composed of saline banks from which windmills arise. This is certainly one of the most important humid coastal zones, protected by the Trapani and Paceco Saline Natural Reserve.
Trapani Province is particularly renowned for the extraordinary cultural heritage spread all over its territory, from the archaeological area of Segesta, located in the coastal hinterland, to Selinunte, Erice and the Island of Mothia.
The City of Trapani boasts its historic center and several splendid monuments dating to different epochs, a unique and fascinating collection.
