The Sicily region
Sicily is the biggest region of Italy, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, in fact its surface area is 25,708 km². Currently it has five million inhabitants.
Sicily has always been considered a crucial strategic location due in large part to its importance for Mediterranean trade routes. The area was highly regarded as part of Magna Graecia, with Cicero describing Siracusa as the greatest and most beautiful city of all Ancient Greece.
Sicily was once the Kingdom of Sicily, ruled from Palermo. The kingdom originally ruled over the island, the southern Italian peninsula and Malta before the Sicilian Vespers. It later became a part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, with the capital in Naples rather than Sicily. Since that time the Italian unification has taken place and Sicily is now a fully fledged part of Italy.
Sicily is considered to be highly rich in its own unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, cuisine, architecture and even language. Sicilian economy is largely based on agriculture (namely orange and lemon orchards); this same rural countryside has attracted significant tourism in the modern age as its natural beauty is highly regarded. Sicily also holds importance for archaeological and ancient sites such as the Necropolis of Pantalica and the Valley of the Temples.
The ancient Drepanum offers a charming historical centre with a lot of baronial buildings, city walls and sighting towers. The city is famous all over the world for its corals and for tuna fishing. Nowadays Trapani is the italian capital of sailing. It is located in Western Sicily and rises on the same promontory of the ancient Drepanum, Greek word whose meaning is sickle, because of the shape of its promontory where the town is located. It is also called “ the town of the two seas” because the north side coast of the town is on the Tyrrhenian Sea, while the east one is on the Mediterranean Sea.
In the last years it developed a flowered economic activity bound to the extraction and the trade of salt, thanks to its natural position on the Mediterranean Sea and to its famous port which in ancient times served as commercial access to the most famous Eryx located on the mount which rises above Trapani. Other flowered activities were and are still fishing, of tuna fish in particular for which it was used the classical tuna slaughter technique in the several tunny-fishing nets located in the town and in its surroundings (Saint Giuliano, Saint Cusumano, Formica Isle) and in its province (Favignana, Bonagia, Saint Vito Lo Capo, Scopello, Granitola Cape), the extraction and the commerce of marble and the manufacturing of coral.

We were two couples visiting Tapani, in Torri sul mare, in apartment Piazza Cuba 2. The location was very good and the lady who took care of us (gave us the keys, and gave advice generally) was very kind. The apartment was perfectly cleaned and as it was quite hot, the air conditioning was very important.
