    The port town of Trapani is on the western coast of Sicily and is an ideal place to use as a self-catering holiday base for exploring this lovely island.   Renowned for its seafood, fresh tuna and local cuisine, the town remains largely unspoilt and undiscovered by tourists. The port dates back to Phoenician times when it was used to trade with Africa, Naples and the western Mediterranean. The old town has some interesting medieval buildings and a 17th century tower on the headland and there is a leafy park, where outdoor concerts and events often take place. The region was once mined for salt and there are still windmills along the coast.
