The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands, separated from the Continent by the Strait of Messina and surrounded by the Ionian, the Tyrrhenian and the Mediterranean Seas.
It is one of the pearls of Southern Italy and can be discovered, understood and experienced through a series of itineraries dedicated to areas of interest ranging from nature to history and traditions.
Nature seems to have endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all the sea, with its incredible colors, its crystal-clear water and the beauty of its seabeds, in no way inferior to those of other seas.
Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily - The Aeolians, Egadi and Pelagie Islands, Pantelleria and Ustica - offers unique and the intense sceneries, scents and flavors of uncontaminated nature.
Last but not least, its great volcanoes are symbols of the irresistible beauty and vitality of this incredibly charming region.
Fascination for this region grows with treasured archaeological sites that tell the story of the ancient origins of Trinacria (ancient name for Sicily).
BALESTRATE is located in the middle of CASTELLAMMARE'S GULF between Palermo and Trapani .The seafront is fascinating for its fantastic colors, ranging from intense blue to the green of vegetation, along with the constrasting dark hues of rocks against white beaches of finest sand. Trapani's coast - by turns flat and sandy or high and rugged - and the islands of the Province (Pantelleria and the Egadi Islands) offer fun opportunities to spend a relaxing vacation by the sea, and even practice every water sport imaginable.
Sea enthusiasts and/or the athletic can sail or scuba-dive to see gorgeous seabeds, or take a boat tour to discover the breathtaking caves of Maréttimo Island, among which is the famous Grotta del Cammello.
The protected areas allow for naturalistic excursions, and country trails, for trekking.
At the thermal baths of Segesta, wellness is guaranteed. The baths exploit the properties of special waters for treatments and therapies.
The calendar is rich in local events, and highlights the famous Holy Friday Procession in Trapani, the Feast of the Holy Crucifix in Calatafimi (May), and the Feast of Sant'Alberto in Trapani (August).
Among the celebrations dedicated to gastronomic specialties and typical products, food and wine week reigns in San Vito Lo Capo (August), as does the Mediterranean Wine Fair in Marsala (May and September).
