Travel and Culture in Sicily
Just outside the city you will find the Saline’s reserve where shallow saltpans mirror the sky's colour, from blue to pink, and still yield table salt according to age-old methods.
In front of Trapani rise the Egadi Islands, the largest sea reserve in Europe, with their clear waters and typical fishing towns.
Halfway between Trapani and Marsala, in the Stagnone Lagoon, archaeology and watersports live together.
West of Trapani, massive pyramid-like Mount Cofano, surrounded by the sea on three sides, is also an environmental reserve with two main footpaths.
Last but not least, next to San Vito lo Capo lies the Zingaro reserve: a six-kilometre stretch of untamed coast with the nicest beaches in Sicily!
