Make a holiday rental home or villa in Trapani, Sicily, Italy your home away from home

Trapani lies on the western tip of Sicily, Italy. Jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea, Trapani has a long and inextricable love of the sea, and was named after the curved shape of the bay on which it stands, and upon which most of the folklore tales and traditions emanate. Trapani is a magnificent destination for those wishing to explore the best of Sicily, as well as enjoying some of the most sensational sunsets over the Mediterranean that you can find.

Things to do in Trapani, Sicily

Despite concentrated Allied bombing during WWII, there are still some phenomenal sites to explore in Trapani, mostly dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries, not all the way back to the town’s medieval roots. The baroque stylings of the Church of Sant’Agostino, Santa Maria di Gesu, Basilica-Sanctuary of Maris Santissima and Fontana di Tritone are all well worth investigation from Trapani accommodation.

The coast of Trapani is a huge attraction. This region of Sicily provides some of the best coastal walking anywhere on the island, especially in the stunning saline nature park of Zingaro. The most celebrated beach to visit from a Trapani holiday rental is a short walk along the salt lagoon at San Vito lo Capo, a long, sandy beach that never gets crowded. Trapani is also a sailing centre of the highest quality, offering plenty of moorings as well as access into the Mediterranean and the Egadi Islands.

One of the most interesting times to visit a Trapani holiday home is during Easter, when Trapani’s Easter Procession takes over the town. During this period, known as the ‘Misteri’, townspeople parade religious statues through the streets for around 16 hours, with events, performances and feasts adding to the atmosphere. The summer music festival, the Luglio Musicale Trapanese, in July and annual tuna festival also draw the plaudits from visitors.

Places to visit on holiday in Trapani, Sicily

Trapani is still the gateway to the tiny Egadi Islands, which lie just off the north coast of Sicily. Tiny and mountainous, the Egadi Islands are most famous for their sensational beaches and secluded bays, as well as their fishing credentials and huge range of Neolithic and Palaeolithic cave paintings. Favignana is the largest of the islands, as well as one of the more popular of the islands to visit. Boats leave for the islands from the port.

Weather in Trapani, Sicily

Summers are wonderfully reliable, with temperatures almost always levelling off between 25 and 30°C during the heat of the day between June and September. Autumn and spring conditions can be varied, although the weather is usually ideal for walking and sightseeing tours.

Peaceful and relaxing. The residence was spotless and had everything needed for a 10 day stay. Our hosts, Nicola and Carmen, were lovely and welcoming. The terrace overlooking the sea is entirely private and there is ready walking access to a private cove from which to swim in clear and clean water. Local amenities are limited so a car is essential. The nearby "Market" has everything you need including an amazing array of local cheeses, local wine and meat and fabulous local vegetables, olive oil, and fruit products. Easy vehicular access to nearby towns for days out. We went in early September and if it is solitude you want and a place to relax this time of year this is it. We will return.

Nice large table big enough for everyone to sit around. The showers were always warm, which never happens in big villas. Pool is lovely and we really liked the temperature! We BBQ'ed every night :-) We were a family of 8 adults, 3 children and 2 babies. Everyone loved it!
