Living by the Salt Uptakes

When visiting Trapani area I always choose the accommodation by the salt uptakes. Easy access to Trapani (just 10 minutes by coast road), to Erice (30 minutes), close to Marsala and wine districts. It is also a calmer area as Trapani is quite of a messy town.

N?r jag bes?ker Trapani-omr?det v?ljer jag alltid boende vid saltupptaget. Enkel ?tkomst till Trapani (bara 10 minuter kustv?gen), till Erice (30 minuter), n?ra till Marsala och vindistriktet. Det ?r ocks? ett lugnare omr?de d? Trapani ?r en? ganska r?rig stad.

Pit Stop Trapani

Trapani is a quite well known coast town on the west side of Sicily. Had a huge tourism boom when the airport was made a Ryanair airport, but now struggling to keep the numbers up. Trapani is not my favourite city, but the old town is really worth a visit. Beautiful baroque style with nice shops, wine bars and traffic free zones. Park the car in front of the harbor and walk the few minutes in. In Trapani you should eat the classical couscous with fish soup. The city is also well located between two important wine districts, Alcamo and Marsala. I would recommend to book a stay on the countryside of Trapani. We visited just couple of hours to eat after a wine tour.

Trapani ?r en ganska k?nd kuststad p? v?stra sidan av Sicilien. Hade en enorm turismboom n?r flygplatsen gjordes till en Ryanair flygplats, men k?mpar nu f?r att h?lla siffrorna uppe. Trapani ?r inte min favoritstad, men gamla stan ?r verkligen v?rt ett bes?k. Vacker barockstil med fina aff?rer, vinbarer och trafikfria zoner. Parkera bilen framf?r hamnen och g? de f? minuterna in. I Trapani borde du ?ta den klassiska couscousen med fisksoppa. Staden ligger ocks? bra till mellan tv? viktiga vinomr?den, Alcamo och Marsala. Jag rekommenderar att boka boendet p? landsbygden utanf?r Trapani. Vi stannade bara ett par timmar f?r middag efter en vintur.

We decided to stop by a wine bar and take in local Focaccia and Tagliere (cheese and chark).

Vi stannade till vid en vinbar och tog in en lokal Focaccia och Tagliere (ost och chark)

One big fat reason to visit Chiesa Nuova

If you are in the Trapani, Segesta area please pass this restaurant in Chiesa Nuova, a bit north of Trapani. The restaurant went to top three restaurants in Sicily. It is run by a sicilian who before worked as a chef in London. Mixed great restaurant service and ideas with the sicilian cuisine. It is easy to find as there is only one street in Chiesa Nuova and the resturant is somewhere in the middle of the village. Best pizzas ever and here I had my Trippa experience. The restaurants name is La Mitica Campagnola.

Om du ?r i Trapani/Segesta omr?det, v?nligen passera denna restaurang i Chiesa Nuova, en bit norr om Trapani. Restaurangen gick till topp tre restauranger i Sicilien. Den drivs av en sicilianare som tidigare arbetat som kock i London. Blandat med bra restaurang service och id?er med det sicilianska k?ket. Det ?r l?tt att hitta eftersom det bara finns en gata i Chiesa Nuova och restaurangen ?r n?gonstans i mitten av byn. B?sta pizzor n?gonsin och h?r jag hade min Trippa erfarenhet. Restaurangen heter La Mitica Campagnola.

2 hours in Trapani

We had some time over before driving back home to Catania, so we decided to eat dinner in Trapani. Trapani is very nice by the harbor where also the old town is. Have two main roads and several small cosy streets with nice bars, restaurants and shops.

Typical West coast dish

When you visit Trapani and the west coast area, do not miss to eat fish soup with couscous. It is a typical dish for this area because in the past the west side of Sicily has been most influenced by arabs. This is a dish you do not find anywhere else in Sicily.
Go to the harbor area, a bit further from the main street where the locals eat.
————————————–

N?r du bes?ker Trapani och v?stkustomr?det, missa inte att ?ta fisksoppa med couscous. Det ?r en typisk matr?tt f?r detta omr?de eftersom i historien har v?stra sidan av Sicilien varit mest p?verkad av arab eran. Detta ?r en matr?tt du inte finner n?gon annanstans p? Sicilien.
G? till hamnomr?det, lite l?ngre fr?n huvudgatan d?r lokalbefolkningen ?ter.

Good Shopping: Sicily Outlet Village

Catania is one of the best shopping cities according to my shopping loving friends, but just 50 minutes outside Catania, by Enna,?there is Sicily Outlet Village and this is very good shopping. It’s not an outlet where you find products with defects or out of fashion clothes. They offer real collections and you find also the sizes. Here you find clothes, home design and small lunch restaurants and coffee shops. It is strategically placed in the middle of Sicily, so a trip from any city is not far.

From Catania, Messina, Palermo, Trapani and most Sicilian cities there are free buses everyday. From Catania a free bus departs everyday at 11:00 from Piazza Repubblica and for the return departs at 17:00.

Example of stores: Desigual, Nike, Ferrari, Bialetti, Boss, Gucci, Gant, Motivo…all from 10 ? to no limit wallets.
