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).

Don’t miss Cave Ox

If you are out by Etna north side and enjoying wine yards, do not miss Cave Ox. An amazing local restaurant in Solicchiata, just where the wine districts starts by Etna. The cook by the seasons and the owner is very friendly. He also offered me to taste some new wines he was thinking to have in the wine selection. Here having their anti-pasti and then Porcini mushroom pasta.

Om du ?r ute vid Etnas norra sida och njuter av ving?rdar, missa inte Cave Ox. En fantastisk lokal restaurang i Solicchiata, precis d?r vindistrikten b?rjar vid Etna. Kocken lagar efter ?rstiderna och ?garen ?r mycket v?nlig. Han erbj?d mig ocks? att smaka p? n?gra nya viner som han t?nkte ha i vinsortimentet. H?r deras anti-pasti och sedan Porcini svamppasta.
