Neighborhood: The apartment is located in one of Trapani's most convenient neighborhoods. You'll have access to plenty of grocery stores, supermarkets, bars, cafes, and other shopping points. Run to the Despar downstairs to get some fresh sandwiches, drinks, and any other groceries (also open on Sundays). Have breakfast at Bar Todaro and enjoy one of the best cappucinos in town accompanied by fresh pastries and brioches, and don't miss the mythical 'timbalettos' or 'arancines' on your way out. In the mood for some serious ice cream? Go to La Voglia Matta or Benivegna and try the famous 'nocciola mantecato' on a brioche. Don't forget about tasting Benivegna's cannoli. Finally, bring home a selection of small cones. Returning from the beach, after a day of sunbathing and swimming, they will come handy, delicious and refreshing as only the best ice cream in Trapani can be. Hop on the cableway and get drinks in Erice; a perfect way to end the day - beauty and romance just around the corner.
Why rent in Trapani: Trapani and the surrounding area are a breathtaking mixture of natural beauties and historical attractions. If you love snorkeling and scuba-diving, visit the beautiful Egadi islands, accessible by ferryboat in less than half an hour. For sunbathing and swimming, choose Trapani's beach, but make it sure you pick a spot close to the windmill toward the end of the beach, away from the crowd. Also add to your trip plan a visit to Cornino's and Macari's bays. Avoid San Vito in August - just too busy. But visit Lo Zingaro, a pristine natural park with amazing little bays where you can spend the day hiking, swimming, and sunbathing. If you love history, go to Segesta and Selinunte where you'll find majestic marks of the ancient Greek's architecture. Or visit Erice, one of the most picturesque medieval towns in Italy. A lover of the arts? Then spend half a day in Gibellina at the lunar spot of the 'Gretto' and the sophisticated contemporary art museum 'The Gibellina Foundation.
Why rent in Trapani (continued): The list of things to do and food not to miss is endless. But in the end, what is going to make your vacation unforgettable is where you choose to stay. While the area offers many rental locations, Trapani is the most strategic gateway of all. Also, the only place that won't feel too touristy and unnecessarily expensive in the summer months. While you want to stay in a pretty place, you probably won't want to be stuck on a crowded island, or end up feeling overwhelmed by the droves of tourists who swarm San Vito in July and August, or feel you have to climb up and down from Erice everyday to reach the nearest beach. Similarly, it won't make sense to choose poorly-served locations when you can stay in a picturesque sea-town that offers plenty of excellent restaurants and night-life spots. Trapani, the sickle-shaped town that opens to the sea and the Egadi islands at the feet of Mount Erice, with kilometers of sandy beach and plenty of unmissable 'food' spots awaits you.
