The city, with its characteristic sickle shape, seems to embrace the port, once in the middle of a powerful commercial network that stretched from Carthage to Venice.
Drèpanon (for the Romans Drepanum) has thrived its economy on the fishing of coral and tuna fish, with the historic production of salt and wine. Today, from Trapani you can get the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo) and Pantelleria or walk along the fascinating historic center.
Along your walk, do not miss the Jesuit Church, the Cathedral and the Church of Purgatory, guardian of the statues of the "Mysteries". The 20 reproductions of the passion of Christ represent a precious treasure inherited from the Spanish domination.
To conclude, the sunset view on the old walls of the city will leave you breathless.
