The Italian city of Trapani is located on the island of Sicily and is the capital of the Province of Trapani. The city's history dates back to the Elymians and is an important fishing port and the gateway to the Egadi Islands. Popular attractions in the city include its churches in general and its restored cathedral in particular. The Cattedrale di San Lorenzo was built during the 14th century and underwent a later Byzantine facelift. Also popular in the city is the Chiesa del Purgatorio which contains the sculptures that are carried through the city during its famous Easter procession. On Good Friday these twenty wooden statues, known as the Misteri, are carried through the streets by robed citizens.
Located away from the city centre are the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala which is famous for its wine and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. Another popular excursion when in Trapani is to visit the nearby Egadi islands which can be reached in around 30 minutes. They are the perfect place to relax, swim, scuba dive or just to potter around.
From Trapani's port, ferries leave for islands like the remote Pantelleria as well as Naples, Cagliari in Sardinia and Tunisia.
The Italian island of Favigana is one of the Egadi Islands and lies off the west coast of Sicily. Favigana is connected to the other Egadi islands and also with Trapani which makes the island very accessible because of the proximity of Trapani Airport to the island. The island is popular with tourists but has managed to retain much of its leisurely way of life and island charm. This is perhaps because it has never been an island that has been popular with the rich and hasn't succumbed to building out of character attractions or facilities to cater for tourists.
Favigana Town is a lovely place to visit with a friendly atmosphere. The town's centre is pedestrianised for the evening passeggiata and its squares, Piazza Madrice and Piazza Europa, are filled with people relaxing outside cafes and people going about their every day lives. It is definitely a place to sit, relax and people watch.
