the ancient port of Selinunte and its cluster of Hellenic temples occupies a beautiful seafront position on the westernmost coast.

The nearby port of Trapani is the gateway to the divine Egadi islands where islanders transport visitors by boat around the bays and isolated beaches.

Back on the mainland, the hilltop town of Erice boasts lovely paved streets , almond pastries and stunning views.

Nature lovers will appreciate the Riserva dello zingaro , a pristine stretcht of mountainous coastline broken up by inviting coves and home to typical Mediterranean flora.

A hydrofoil trip north from Palermo takes you to the rocky volcanic island of Ustica,

its turquoise waters and underwater caves a haven for cuba divers.

No visitors should miss the atmospheric town of Cefalu’, a warren of narrow streets and a landmark cathedral in the shadow of a limestone promontory.
