I would like to add the link below about the rental company in Trapani Airport:
San Vito is not so far from Trapani Airport, only 50 minutes by car.
There are some different solutions: you may rent an apartment, book a room in a hotel or in a bed & breakfast. I have chosen the last solution,due to the money saving.
I would like to suggest you Trigrana B&B.
It’s situated only 5 km from San Vito and the breakfast is superb!
Absolutely the stunning beach and the transparent warm sea!
You may park the car in a free parking near the beach (there are some indications about this) and then, if you want to, there is a shuttle that, two time per hour, brings the people close to the beach.
By foot is not far as well.
Near San Vito there are few fantastic places that you should not miss.
The ‘Riserva dello Zingaro’ is one of those. From San Vito to Scopello, seven kilometers through the coast. The landscape is breathtaking and, long the path you will find various charming beaches (with stones not sand).
It is possible to walk inside the reserve with children too, but, generally, the people stop at the first or second beach. The warmth, the sun and the long paths might be heavy for them.
Be carefull! Before the excursion beginning , take a lot of water, hat, high protection cream and it’s better if you have a pair of sneakers.
Another advisable excursion could be Favignana Island. It’s the biggest among Egadi Islands and perhaps the most beautiful.
Indeed, it would be better to spend there some days, but if you have no time to do that, a day in Favignana is sufficient for visiting some beaches and strolling around the little centre (maybe sipping a ‘granita al gelsomino or gelso nero).
For getting there you can go to Trapani’s port. You may leave the car in a big parking close to Palazzetto dello Sport (follow the indication). Then you may walk until the port (20 minutes) or take the coach number 2. The stop is close to the parking but on the other side of the street.
Ustica Lines and Siremar are the companies for reaching Favignana.
For prices and timetable you may visit their sites:
It’s better to book in advance if you want take the first trip of the day, because it’s always crowded.
On the island it’s necessary to rent a bike, scooter or car. You will find what you want, all near the port.
In Favignana there is only one real beach: Lido Burrone, nothing of special.
Cala Azzurra (stones and sand) is the best place of island. The sea is spectacular and the sand is like talcum powder. The beach is little and often crowded…it’s a pity…
Cala Rossa, is another fantastic place, but unfotunately, only stones!.
There are others beatiful places on the island, but if you have only one day, i would suggest you to see those places and to do a panoramic trip around the island. Nothing else.
My favorite excursion of all is ‘ The faraglioni of Scopello’.
Scopello is only 38 km far from San Vito, and close to the beach there is the parking. The price is 1 eur per hour or 5/6 eur for all the day.
For reaching the beach (it’s a way of saying because there is no sand but only cement) you may go straight on the main street and then take the path on the right. Here you may pay the ticket (3 eur per person, children until 10 years free), and get off until the sea.
And don’t forget to visit the little village of Scopello…very nice…mostly for a romantic night!
The last excursion that i have done during my trip in Sicily is Erice.
It’s a cute little country lays on Giuliano’s Mountain. The historical center is full of little lanes and i would like to suggest you to stroll slowly in Erice, just having relax.
There are two things that you should not miss: to taste its typical sweets (such as Genovese with cream) and to enjoy the gorgeous view from the castle to the coast. If the night is clear you are able to see Egadi Islands on one side and Palermo with Castellammare’s Gulf on the other side. Spectacular!
I hope this travel’s diary is useful for all the foreigner people that decide to visit this little part of Italy.
