The Italian city of Trapani is located on the island of Sicily and is the capital of the Province of Trapani. The city's history dates back to the Elymians and is an important fishing port and the gateway to the Egadi Islands. Popular attractions in the city include its churches in general and its restored cathedral in particular. The Cattedrale di San Lorenzo was built during the 14th century and underwent a later Byzantine facelift. Also popular in the city is the Chiesa del Purgatorio which contains the sculptures that are carried through the city during its famous Easter procession. On Good Friday these twenty wooden statues, known as the Misteri, are carried through the streets by robed citizens.

Located away from the city centre are the medieval walled hill town of Erice, Marsala which is famous for its wine and the ancient Greek site of Selinunte. Another popular excursion when in Trapani is to visit the nearby Egadi islands which can be reached in around 30 minutes.

Ustica Guide

The small Italian island of Ustica is located off the north coast of Sicily and boasts spectacular scenery both on land and underwater. The island, which is of volcanic origin, is a national marine park that features petrified black lava and crystal clear waters. Because of this Ustica is a popular destination with scuba divers who flock their to see first hand the submerged ancient city of Osteodos. The island is also a popular destination for overnight visitors as it is easy to get to. Popular attractions on the island include the prehistoric village of the 'Faraglioni' which is a large village with reinforced fortress walls that are about 1 meter high and six meters thick. The village along with 'Omo Morto' shows that during the Bronze Age, around 1450-1250 BC, Ustica benefited from its location along the Obsidian and other trade routes. The walls, built following the construction techniques of Mycenae and dating back to the Middle Bronze Age, are proof of the state of insecurity in which Sicily found itself following the arrival of the Mycenaeans.
