| 4 min read

Once a flourishing Phoenician trading center, the western coastline of Sicily is often overlooked by the travelers, who proceed to flock to the more popular eastern part. Bagging an enviable location, the crescent-shaped city, wedged between two seas at the foot of Mount Erice and overlooking the Egadi Islands, is free of industrial developments and, instead, harbors protected nature and marine parks. If you happen to stumble upon this Sicilian gem, expect quaint historic towns lined with artistic architectural wonders, an active food culture topped with delicious home-grown wine, plenty of exciting things to do like hiking, biking, and diving, authentic village scenes and, of course, splendid coastlines housing jaw-dropping offshore islands. Check out the following best places to stay in Trapani, Italy.
