Italy Euro Italian Image Image Image Nature reserve of the salt pans of Trapani The salt trade of the city of Trapani has its roots in antiquity. The first salt pans are thought to date back to the Phoenician era, but they are still used to extract the precious salt that has become Presidio Slow Food. The landscape of the salt pans, made even more impressive by the characteristic windmills, during the sunset is painted pink, orange and yellow, and if you are lucky you can even admire the pink flamingos. Inside the reserve there is also the salt museum, where you can retrace the history of the ancient salt tradition. Image Egadi Islands The Egadi Islands are an archipelago near the coast of Trapani, characterized by unspoilt landscape and lush flora. The three islands, Favignana, Levanzo, Marettimo, are surrounded by crystal clear waters that enhance even more their beauty. Every day from the port of Trapani guided tours that not only allow you to admire the beauty of the islands but also, for the most adventurous, to dive off into the crystal clear waters to admire the seabed.

Typical Mediterranean dish with humble origins, couscous is defined as the dish of peace, because it was able to unite different traditions becoming a symbol of integration and intercultural brotherhood. During the Cous Cous Fest food lovers from all over the world arrive in San Vito Lo Capo to spend ten days between culinary competitions, cooking lessons, cooking shows held by starred chefs and tastings, but also music, shows and concerts.
