Trapani: all of Sicily in one Province

1 hour from Trapani you can reach all the major sites of western Sicily

A language vacation in Italy would not be complete without beaches on the one hand and culture on the other hand. In Sicily, beaches are wonderful, and Trapani is the province with the finest sea spots, such as San Vito lo Capo (awarded more than once the title of "best beach in Italy"), the Zingaro reserve, the Egadi Islands, the Island of Pantelleria... When it comes to culture, around Trapani there are 3000 years of Sicilian history: from the punic island-town of Mothia to Selinunte's Greek temples, from the Roman relics in Marsala to Mazara's Arabic Casbah, all the way to contemporary art in Gibellina with Burri's Cretto.

A one-hour drive from Trapani allows you to reach the majority of sites shown in this table of tourist destinations around Trapani.

Some can be reached with public transports, some by car. Most of this sites can be visited in a half-day excursion, some require a full day. This means that even in one week it is possible to visit numerous major historical and natural sites: an ideal mix for those who love active cultural tourism!

Besides, when attending at Scuola Virgilio an Italian language course in Sicily of two or more weeks it is a good idea to travel over the weekends to the eastern part of the island, visiting places like Piazza Armerina, Noto, Siracusa, Taormina, Etna and many other localities and UNESCO sites.

This was my best Academic Travel trip in three years. In addition to helping my Italian, this experience provided me with great inspiration for my photographs!
