The Sicily region
Sicily (Italian: Sicilia [si?t?i?lja]) is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea; along with surrounding minor islands, it constitutes an autonomous region of Italy, the Regione Siciliana (Sicilian Region).
Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean. It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula from which it is separated only by the narrow Strait of Messina, towards the North African coast. Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, which is at 3,320 m (10,890 ft) the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate.
The earliest archeological evidence of human dwelling on the island dates from as early as 8000 BC. At around 750 BC, Sicily became a Greek colony and for the next 600 years it was the site of the Greek-Punic and Roman-Punic wars, which ended with the Roman destruction of Carthage. After the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD, Sicily often changed hands, and during the early Middle Ages it was ruled in turn by the Vandals, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Later on, the Kingdom of Sicily lasted between 1130 and 1816, first subordinated to the crowns of Aragon, Spain, the Holy Roman Empire, and finally unified under the Bourbons with Naples, as the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. With the Expedition of the Thousand, a Giuseppe Garibaldi-led revolt during the Italian Unification process, it became part of Italy in 1860 as a result of a plebiscite. After the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946, Sicily was given special status as an autonomous region.
Sicily has a rich and unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, music, literature, cuisine and architecture. Sicily also holds importance for archeological and ancient sites such as the Necropolis of Pantalica, the Valley of the Temples and Selinunte.
Trapani is the capital city of the province and comprises about 70,000 people. It is famous for its fish and salt. As you approach the town, you will drive past the 'saline' salt-pans and salt museum & restaurant in Nubia. The Historic Moorish and Baroque parts of the city can be explored on foot via the narrow, cobbled pedestrianised streets. There are several historical Palazzos, Churches and Cathedrals to visit. Notably the 'Chiesa del Purgatorio' which contains the wooden 'Misteri' statues of Christ and Mary that are used in the world famous Easter parades through the city. Trapani's ancient name isDrepanon, meaning 'scythe'. At the tip of this scythe you can also visit the museum of Prehistory in the Torre di Ligny lighthouse on the most seaward point of Trapani. Along the approach roads to Trapani sit three large supermarkets, with the weekly produce market not far away alongside the port. Most shops are located along the Via GB Fardella Boulevard that dissects the town. Trapani is also where you can catch the Hydrofoil and/or ferry to the Egadi Islands and the cable-cars up Monte Erice. There is a new Lido beach east of the centre. The central boulevard in has many Ice Cream Bars and piazzas. You can take a return cable car ride up to Erice for a few Euros - saving you the long drive. In the older part of Trapani you will find an array of restaurants on the small cobbled streets. They may not look that grand, but inside the food is fresh, local and delicious
