Trapani is famous for the windmills which line the horizon, providing a beautiful backdrop and endless photo opportunities. They were once used to drain the water from the salt which is still produced in Trapani today in great quantities, attracting many tourists to its shimmering white 'salt flats'. The province is also renowned for its wine, in particular the sweet Marsala dessert wine, and therefore is ideal for those looking to tour Sicily's many vineyards.
Trapani is actually nearer to Africa than to mainland Italy and therefore offers an eclectic cuisine and it is surrounded by sea on three sides, thus boasting a stunning coastline. Lo Zingaro nature reserve at San Vito lo Capo offers almost 7km of untamed, beautiful cliffs and beaches.
