Trapani is a Sicilian port with an ancient history and varied attractions for the visitor. Historic churches are the most notable attractions in the port itself, but perhaps more appealing to most are the Egadi Islands just off the coast and the Norman fortress at Erice, on a hill overlooking the port. The renowned fortified Marsala wine is a local product. Impressive Greek ruins can be seen at Segesta and Selinunte, rival Sicilian towns that were at odds during the Peloponnesian War in the late 5th Century BC.

If you happen to be in Trapani during Easter week, you will be in for a very special experience, the Misteri of Trapani, a daylong procession of life-like floats representing different scenes from the crucifixion. The floats were created during the 17th and 18th centuries and can be viewed in the Chiesa del Purgatorio at other times of the year.
