Our Surroundings

ERICE: "Middle Age and Science" - a medieval citadel, which takes us into a dreamy atmosphere with its towers, castles, and cobbled streets. Even its smells tell us of ancient, unchanged recipes. An historical town that science has chosen as its home, Erice today hosts the Centro Ettore Maiorana. The myth says that Aeneas from Erice watched the games at sea organized to celebrate the funeral of his father Anchises. The mount was sacred to love by Elimi, Phoenicians and Greeks who dedicated it to Aphrodite and  Romans who celebrated Venus of Erice. Erice is still enclosed in the triangular perimeter, drawn from its narrow medieval streets built along the centuries by the Arab, Norman and Spanish dominations.

SCOPELLO: An ancient fishing village that takes its name from the greek word  “Skopelos” is located on the site of Cetaria, so called due to the abundance of tuna. It is one of the most beautiful tuna fishing complex, now  in disuse. One can still admire the stores, the beam, the lodgings of the tuna fishermen and the sheds in which are still stored the "muciare", long and spacious boats already used by the Arabs for the traditional tuna fishing, "the slaughter".

SEGESTA - A rich and complex tissue of civilizations have passed in the centuries, leaving behind  the wonders of their immortal artistic expressions.  A natural enchanting scenery  made unique by the charm of ancient and impressive architectures still offering  the emotion of their mystery and their greatness.

SELINUNTE – named after a strongly fragranced wild persley that the Greeks called Selinon, typical of this area, Selinunte remains one of the largest archaeological sites in Europe with his acropolis full of ancient ruins.

PANTELLERIA - the largest of the satellite islands of Sicily, with an area of ​​83 square kilometers is also the westernmost: only 84 km separate the Island from the African continent and it is at the same latitude of Tunis. The warm climate is tempered by the frequent and strong winds from the sea  that justify the nickname of Qawsarah or Bent el Rion, “Daughter of the Wind”, given by the Arabs.

The Egadi Islands - The three islands, Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo form this small archipelago off  the coast of Trapani, characterized by the beauty of the coast and the transparency of the sea that surrounds them. Inhabited since prehistoric times ( and it is assumed that in Paleolithic Levanzo and Favignana were still joined to the mainland ), they have witnessed  important historical events.

MOZIA - Only a small island in the middle of a lagoon and yet, is where the Phoenicians gave rise to a prosperous colony.

SALINE - The road that leads from Trapani to Marsala, along the lagoon that hosts Mozia, is flanked by salt pans that offer a beautiful view: squares of water divided by narrow strips of land forming an irregular and multicolored chessboard.

SAN VITO LO CAPO - A popular seaside resort, thanks to its beautiful coastline on a shape of a  bay and a long beautiful beach with crystal clear water displaying all shades of  azure, green and deep blue. San Vito is a small village built around its Church in the course of ‘700.
